I usually go to pick up food to go, but I like that they do have plenty of space for customers to eat there if you want to. The food is always good. The pork is my favorite, but they have a variety of great food to choose from.

We loved our jerk chicken and pork with sides of rice and peas and festivals. We ate outside at picnic tables. Watching the guys tend the massive grill is entertaining. Don't miss this authentic place.

The hotels in MoBay are full of Jerk Chicken but Jerk Pork is harder to find. We opted to go to the Pork Pit for a real taste and it was fantastic and far spicier than the hotel Jerk Chicken. It's an experience to watch it being cooked and then enjoy the succulent meat. Also look out for the 300... More

Very good but not juicy and tasteful enough. Taste could've really been a lot stronger with both the chicken and pork jerk. The fried plantains though we absolutely delicious.

The jerk season wings with the scotch bonnet pepper were hot hot hot but great flavor. The regular Jerk Chicken was amazing. Everyone in our group completely enjoyed this stop. Thank you Javia Shaw for taking us to the Pork Pit.

I personally thought it was much better than scotchies! Besides scotchies is literally in the middle of no where and I didn't think the staff were that friendly. Also the portions at scotchies were much smaller than pork pit. Pork pit was very tasty! Scotchies probably has a nicer restaurant/ atmosphere but definitely not better food.
