“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

My son took me here during my visit to Burbank. We ordered the daily special of Jerk Chicken, peas and rice, plantain and salad. If was all so very delicious. Spiced just right! Best carribean food I have had in a long time. The place was clean and ran orderly. The staff friendly....the waitress called my son "Mr. Bananna Pudding" because he is a frequent customer and always orders the bananna pudding for desert and he loves it, which suprised me because before tasting theirs, the only bananna pudding he would ever eat was his grandmother's recipe!!!

I love the food here!!! Jerk chicken is the best and the bread...OMG the bread!!!! Been here several times, even had my birthday party here. Highly recommend it. Only thing to remember this is not a fast food joint, so give yourself time to enjoy it.

“Only missing the steel drum band”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2011

Okay so Caribbean is not high on most people's cuisine list and to be fair most people couldn't name a famous dish, Coley's is a place that you need to go to experience good Caribbean food and expand your horizons.

Patties to die for - that's a Jamaican turn on the English pasty or S American empanada. The Gumbo is a great alternative and you can see how the Creoles were influenced by other locales. Of course there's great Oxtail, Jerk Chicken, stews, curries and fish but my favorite is the Goat Curry (a real specialty) and the Escoveitched Fish which is not often beaten.

Go on be brave - try something you've not heard of, in here you wont regret it.
