I hate to write a negative review but what a disappointment!! Maybe we got a bad day? Too early? Not cooked by Barry?

We picked up our four legged (they only exist on the Brac) chicken around 6pm on a Wednesday. Barry wasn't there yet, his helper served up our bird and off we went to eat at our villa. I knew something wasn't right when I tried to take the chicken off the leg for my son and it wasn't a easy task. Dried out and where's the JERK? We ended up throwing out two legs of the two lbs we ordered.

We had been told by our caretaker that Barry was a MUST and an island icon??? We asked around and others recommended him so what happened? I might be willing to go back but I would need to figure out if my experience was out of the ordinary or else I'm spoiled by Jerk back home in our fav. Jamacian restaurant.

This is a must do in the Brac. Make sure you ask to meet Barry Morgan, the owner. It just does not get more Caribbean than this
