We had the grilled tilapia - one with a tomato based sauce and the other with sautéed with onions and peppers. Both were delicious. The sides were good also - cabbage, plantains, Mac-n-cheese, and beans. Next time we're in town, we'll try it again.

I really enjoyed the Curry Goat. Don't be afraid!! Ordered the Chicken but they were out.."upgraded" me to the goat at no xtra charge. Everything is spiced up and flavored nicely. Give it a try. Nice little hole in the wall type of place.

We tried the jerk chicken. It was perfectly grilled. Somewhat spicy but wonderful seasoning. Plantains and rice rounded out the meal. Perfect gluten free option. Quick service, simple venue, good value.

Don't be in a hurry. We saw this place from a block and half away. The smoker on the sidewalk induced us to a delight we were so glad to take in. The staff will help you choose (or the locals will offer their input).
