“Great food”
Reviewed March 6, 2012

Great food and service difinently need a bigger place. Menu is limited because of the location. Wish it was bigger so you could sit inside. If you have never had ginger beer it is a must try.

“Wonderful... most of the time”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

Sometimes when it's good, it's AMAZING. The chicken is tender and juicy.. the ribs are moist and fall off the bones. Everything just tastes amazing and you're already planning on your next visit back. Other times (and I don't know why it's not consistent) the food is the same but sub-par. Meaning the chicken is dried and overcooked and so are the ribs. I don't know if it's because sometimes the food is cooked ahead of time and just sits there and dries out.. and other times is cooked fresh. I do wish they were more consistent. But for the times that their food is amazing, it's worth the risk to stop by every chance you can get.
NOTE.. their Jerk sauce is great but their BBQ sauce is to die for!

“Excellent Food”
Reviewed November 10, 2011

The jerk chicken is out of this world! Divine! My husband had the chicken which was so big we shared. It was the best chicken I've ever eaten, prepared any style. No kidding. We also had the pulled pork barbecue sandwich which was very good, but it was not jerk-style, more East Tennessee style. Good sauce, tangy but not too sweet. But it's the jerk style that shines. This is a drive-thru with a few outdoor tables. So get a meal, take it to a local park, and have a picnic.

“Delicious, different, and affordable”
Reviewed July 25, 2011

Don't be fooled by the exterior of this place. This is located in a tiny drive-through building and there is no seating, but that's the only negative thing about it. We picked up dinner the week of July 4th. The food is simply delicious. We had chicken, ribs, rice and beans, and potato salad. Everything was cooked and seasoned perfectly. The portions are HUGE, especially for the low price. The ribs were the best I've ever had. The jerk chicken is not spicy, but it comes with your choice of sauce on the side (and I'm told that the spicy sauce is really hot).

I highly recommend this restaurant. You won't be disappointed.
