Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fresh flavorous chicken and pork, served optionally with rice and beans. Super kind service. Clean place. Don’t pass it by.

Great food, very affordable, tourist friendly. Within walking distance from Jimmy Cliff Blvd, the "Hipstrip". Close to the beach, Coral Cliff Casino and Margaritaville. I went there many times, the Roti goes great with everything. See pictures. I loved earing here, staff friendly, lots of...locals eat there as well.More

Scammers!! Had to block credit card. They don’t take Amex- so I used Chase only once there since I came 10 days ago. Today unauthorized random charges star comping up. Probably have scanner to read your cc as u pay. Also $30 for a pound...of pork - is a rip off even for jamaica. We could not figure out what business was doing this with CC because it was not the first time - we visit every couple months - but now we know!More

This was the authentic jerk that I was seeking. Both pork and chicken were seasoned well, tender, and very tasty. The sides took a bit longer, but I just killed time observing the men cook the meat in a very methodical way. I look forward...to visiting again while I’m in the area. I see people say it’s a tourist trap, but when I was there I saw a lot of locals.More

Heard about this place on YouTube and suggested to our friend if he could bring us here. SO glad we went! We ordered jerk chicken, jerk pork, festival and Red Stripe. You go in and order, then you get the receipt and bring it out...to the pit and give it to the cook. You can see the meats cooking on the coals/sweetwood and the smoky smell just makes you drool! I wish we ordered one of everything lol! Especially the sausage. The food was delicious! We would definitely go back in a heartbeat.More

I’m sorry to say that this is an overhyped tourist trap. It is a very pricey place. I ordered jerk and BBQ wings and fries and clearly they were all old. I had some jerk chicken and it was also mediocre. There is also a...woman who sells goods outside the place who is very pushy and will try to rip you off if you haggle with her on her overpriced souvenirs (that are not unique) so beware.More

One of the best meals we had in Jamaica. Absolutely no frills. You get well seasoned pork and some options for sides. It’s nice to be able to watch them smoking the pork over wood. If you’re staying nearby, I might get food to go...instead of eating here. While the food was good, there were lots of flies at the tables and smoke was heavy at times. Cheap red stripe, good plantains, and of course good pork.More

Food is good. That's the only thing that's good. Staff are not polite and more interested in their phones. Sides can take up to 45 minutes if they don't forget about it. Would rather go to Scotchies for better service and food.

Fantastic food! Prices were pretty good compared to the rest of the hip strip area. Seemed like a fair amount of locals ate here too. Place doesn't look like much if you're walking past, but don't let the fool you - the food is great...and you can even watch it being cooked!More

Without a doubt, this is literally the best food I have ever tasted!!! We had the pork and chicken, with some of their jerk sauce and rice and peas - all washed down with Royal Jamaican Ginger Beer. Totally laid back, and exactly what he...had hoped it would be.More

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