Mom's is the true Jamaican experience. Not fancy but plentiful, delicious food. Tiny working class restaurant hidden between larger buildings. Even when we knew where it was we had trouble finding it but persevere.

I came here twice for beef patties, they were pretty good. The cashier tried to give me change back in Jamaican currency after I gave her a $20 bill and got upset when I asked for my change to be the same currency I paid...More

I guess it's true that they do run out of things, because we showed up at 6:30 pm and the only things left on the menu were fried chicken and curried goat. Almost walked out, but changed our minds and stayed, and of course we...More

Mom's is a place I visit every time I go to Jamaica. Visited twice this trip. Had curry goat first time and oxtail the second. Both times the food was excellent. For good food go early as some dishes run out quickly.

Mom's is a satisfactory diner serving some decent Jamaican fare. Nice place to grab some breakfast and they've got a killer oxtail going for them. Good value place but their signage is super small and easily overlooked.

It's a walking distance (5-10 min); US currency is accepted everywhere in Jamaica. That place is inexpensive and the prices are in Jamaican dollars but the conversion is easy, 1USD=120JD
