We picked this place because it was the top rated restaurant in Colorado Springs by TripAdvisor. We even called ahead and made a reservation for 2! When we got there,however, we thought there must be a mistake. It was teensy (4 or 5 small tables, totally off the beaten path and next to a pawn shop. I thought maybe the reviews were false reviews.
How could this little place be ranked the best in ALL of Colorado Springs? Something was fishy, we thought. We giggled and went on to another place.
The next day I was still wondering about Jamaica Flavor (plus the menu looked so good!), so I checked other ratings sites, and they all gave Jamaica Flavor high ranks. My curiosity got the better of me, and I had to get to the bottom of this mystery.
Well..the short of it is that along with my Curried Goat, I had to eat crow. This place was AMAZING--TONS of food, and every teensy morsel of it unbelieveably delicious. My boyfriend got the jerk chicken, we had plantains, cabbage, johnny cakes..the works. I was full 1/2 way through my enormous $9 plate, but kept cramming it in because it was so good. I practically licked the plate!
Wonderful, nice people run the place---mom and pop shop. Friendly and attentive.
Later that day we took the Rail up to Pikes Peak and found ourselves bragging to our seat mates about it. We were official converts--spreading the good word about Jamica Flavor!
Just go--you will not be sorry!
