I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the Pork Pit!! I requested my driver to take me there immediately after my arrival into Montego Bay! There food is wonderfully seasoned and tender. Portions are plenty and service has been with a smile. I have been eating here since 2010....I wish they were here in the states LOLMore

Tasty jerk chicken and pork. You can taste the island spices and herbs. Definitely worth the money spent.

Jerk pork and chicken were fresh off the grills and moist and tender. Jerk sauce could have been hotter but overall great. Better than Scotches.

The food is barely edible. That's the best thing about this awful place. The people are hostile and rude - even by the standards of an island legendary for its terrible service standards. Eat out of a bin before you eat here. If you need...to go somewhere where there is at least some hope of "quality", there is a KFC 200 metres further up the road towards Montego Bay centre.More

Best Jerk Pork in the world. Excellent service. Jerk Pork served with typical Jamaican Red Stripe Beer makes a delectable meal.

We ordered both the chicken and pork. It was all delicious. Fresh, tender, and flavorful. Authentic food, not far from the port.

Tried jerk chicken at several places in Jamaica, so thought to taste jerk pork this time at this MoBay eatery. Got early around 10 AM at this restaurant as I had a flight to catch to the US in the early afternoon. Had to wait...for more than an hour as they start taking orders only after 11 AM. Took the risk of missing the flight to taste jerk port of this restaurant. Ordered 1/2 lb jerk pork and waited to see how they cook their jerk chicken and jerk pork. They cook the meat on open outdoor grill on the large galvanized steel sheets. In order to circulate the smoke into the meat, they place firewood on the top of the meat and then cover them by another galvanized steel sheets, a real Jamaican style! Hastily grabbed the meat once done in take out box and took taxi straight to the airport. When tasted, so soft, tender and juicy! The best jerk pork in Jamaica! Don't miss if you are around MoBay.More

Actually the restaurant and the inn share the same plot, but who would want to stay there and smell food all day?
