I went in looking for oxtails, however most of the food was finished and they were sown to fried chicken, fish, and fries. I also wanted to try the cow foot and it too was long gone. I guess you must arrive before 6 pm to get the good dishes. However, the fried chicken was good and hot. The parking... More

It was hot in there but the food was off the chain!! I ordered oxtails with rice and peas and it was full of flavor. My only complaint was that it was hot inside! Loved the food and prices.

This used to always be the break stop on a drive from Ocho Rios to Montego Bay. It was not just a random stop. We always knew there would be a few great daily specials that we would enjoy. Today it was red pea soup with yam. It was a delicious bargain. They have multiple other specials highlighting traditional Jamaican... More

I had the opportunity to venture out of the resort with the assistance of my taxi driver OB. I was hungry for oxtails and he knew just the place. We arrived at Jerky's and everyone was friendly and all smiles. Needless to say the oxtails were AMAZING!!!! I'll definitely visit them when I return!

Jerkies has delicious food! The prices are quite reasonable and service is fast. My favorite dishes are curry goat, beef patty, fried chicken with peas (a.k.a. rice and beans), oxtail with brown sauce, and the occasional breakfast of salt fish and ackee. Yum!

Jerk chicken was awesome. Jambalaya and nachos were very good. There was also burger fries etc. One small issue, they need to have more dishes to go around, the wait for more to come out is not that bad. But they should be prepared, because this is obviously the hotspot of the day.
