“Best jerk in negril”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

Best in the West is a small no frills Jerk place that serves some of the best Jerk in Negril. Located just across the street from CocaLaPalm seaside resort on Norman Manley Blvd. The jerk chicken is excellent and perfectly done. The beer is cold and the drinks strong. This is the place for a quick dinner or late night snack. Excellent.

“still the best”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

This was our third trip to Negril and it has become tradition to have our first dinner of the trip at Best in the West, and we invariably go back once or twice. It's a very short walk from our hotel (Nirvana on the beach).It's a small roadside place and the jerk is always good. Hot, moist and the sauce is delicious. I eat a lot of Jerk Chicken while in Jamaica and BITW stacks up against any of them.If it's busy you may wait a bit, but that's when it's the best, and chilling out with a few ice cold red stripes is no problem mon. I will definitely go back on my next trip

“Yum”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

It's about as big as the shed in your yard but the jerk is really good. My wife got the shrimp and it was bad so stick with the jerk, have a couple of red stripes and all is well.

“Burnt chicken bones!”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

I think, being late at night, our visit was tarnished by fact of little left................ but what it was, was burnt chicken backs and such, accompanied with white stoggy bread. Them old oil barrels cut in half get a lot of people in buisness.
Give me a Weber any time!
