“This Is My Grandmothers Cooking”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

I found this restaurant accidentally while strolling in the neighborhood..my background is Caribbean so I'm always interested in Caribbean cooking..WELL!..this is traditional Jamaican cooking, seasoning and all..sooo GOOD..the portions are huge..I always leave with a doggie bag and its cheap..its not flashy but the servers are soo friendly..there is no pressure to turn over the table..its wonderful..I go at least once a month and always introduce it to my Jamaican friends

“Great food, great value, great atmosphere!”
Reviewed October 18, 2011

Great Caribbean food at Freda's. Way too much food for one person to eat, and very reasonable prices. Definitely a good find we'll return to!

“Delicious Carribean Jerk Chicken”
Reviewed October 16, 2010

Went here for lunch on a Monday. Ordered the carribean jerk chicken lunch special with a side of plaintains. Pictures are shown below. The plate was huge; the chicken was very good and the rice had a spicy taste to it giving it some kick. The plaintains were good. Their lunch menu is very cheap ($6.50 gets you a plate and 1 side dish).

For the fine diners out there, this is not a restaurant you should expect a hostess to seat you and the waiter to explain the menu eloquently and in great detail. It is a small, local restaurant that serves good, cheap food. Expect nothing more than that.

If you want good, cheap jerk chicken, go here to experience it. It's located just 2 blocks from the 110th St- Cathedral Parkway Subway stop at the NW corner of Central Park (accessible by A, B, and C trains).
