As has been mentioned, this place looks like a bit of a bust when you arrive, as the entrance is through the parking lot. Once inside the setting is casual and attractive, with plenty of outside seating (covered). Food is good - decent portions. Prices are decent for Jamaica.

We arrived just after dark and were ushered into a parking space by a friendly security guard. From the moment I stepped out of the car the smell of smoke and sizzling meat filled my nostrils and increasing my hunger and anticipation instantly.

We stopped for a small take out sample of jerk chicken and pork for our last day. Delicious. Well worth the trip and very interesting watching them cooking the meats over the fire.

Very good cultural food. The best jerk pork and chicken you can get. There are two branches. One in Montego bay and one in Ocho Rios. That's where most people go to have lunch. There are a mixture of both local and tourist.
