Neat place for Jamaican jerk chicken and pork. This one was in Montego Bay. There is an expectation to tip the cooks.

Very authentic Jamaican food!! The jerk chicken was amazing!! It was about a mile walk from our resort, which to me was a little sketchy but just don't go alone, stay with whoever you are going with!! The food was cheap, they had red stripe there, all together I think I paid about $10 USD for a great authentic Jamaican... More

We dined here on a busy Friday night. Do not let the servers wait on you. Much better to wait in the line, order food, then sit down. Just order drinks from the bar. Service is awful. Yes, the chicken is amazing, but nothing else impressed us.

The food was awesome. Try the Festival, yummy. We had chicken and pork. The pork is super spicy. I personally liked chicken better. Tons of people there lined up for take out. Hint, get the take out and just go back to patio with it and eat. Service at table is very slow, but super friendly. So be sure to... More

This is the authentic stuff. Tried several other places, street vendors, and restaurants. I have not particularly cared for most of the food we have had that was straight up Jamaican cuisine. This stuff was over the top. Great cultural immersion and delicious food cooked in a way that was new to me.

Amazing food and service. EVERYTHING was delicious, but particularly the pork and fish. The meat alone was well seasoned but the additional pepper sauces were there for you to turn it up a notch.
