Chicken good. My husband used to take me here before he passed. When visiting I always go back to reflect on our visit. He would tell me stories of the owner and his dad. Cashier begging customer for money, not good, such a turnoff. Management these people are killing your business.

This is my #1 place for jerk chicken and pork (lean). I was there for the holidays and although the 3 times I went, they didn't have potato salad, I still give them high ratings.

Chicken was ok, nothing special. Hot sauce was extremely spicy (compared to Scotchies). Cashier asked if she could keep the change (on a takeout order). More annoyed than anything else by the question.

The Jerk pork is as good as I remembered but the menu needs updating. It says on the door they serve breakfast 7 days a week but when I tried to order, was told they no longer serve breakfast. The dining space is a bit dated and couldn't hurt with some updating.

Planned to have jerk pork but ended up ordering both jerk pork and jerk chicken with festival. It was mouth-watering. A nice cold beer "solidified" the experience. Yum...

Jerk was very good here. I recommend that people try this spot when in Kingston. You will not be disappointed one bit.

Still haven't found any spot that surpasses Chelsea's for jerk chicken. They now have a potato salad which also is delicious. No disappointment there.
