My favorite place to eat in Jamaica. Great pork. Two large charcoal grills filled with pork and chicken. Try the festival and bammy.

This place was close to our B&B (Polkerris B&B) so this was our favorite lunch go to place for inexpensive and delicious jerk chicken and sides (sweet potatoes, plantains...). We would pick up take-out food and enjoy it poolside, although you can eat it there if you like. Pork Pit never disappointed. Be sure to tip the guy working the... More

Had jerk pork and chicken for lunch. Reasonable price and flavourful meat which was moist and tasty. Located on the main strip in Montego Bay so easy to get to.

Went to Pork pit this evening. It's a fast food joint with over average food. Worth trying if you're in the area but nothing going out of your way for. We had ribs, chicken and pork with festival (some kind of fried bread) and rice and beans. Tasty enough but nothing spectacular considering the price level. (Yes I'm aware it's... More

Chicken is fabulous, seasoned throughout, not a dry morsel and full of flavor. 80 % locals, the rest tourists. This is not deluxe dining, but you can't beat the food.

We were able to walk a few blocks from our B&B to get to this restaurant. We liked that it was located up above street level and somewhat of an interesting view. The pork and chicken portions were large and tasty. However, the order taking staff wasn't overly friendly and didn't really explain what to do. We were given our... More

I have been to Jamaica a few times and have had great jerk at some road side stands but the jerk at the Pork Pit was not what I was hoping for. A group of four of us ordered a couple of half chickens and some pork to share along with some peas and rice and festival. The rice had... More

The Pork Pit is Montego Bays first premier Jerk centre and has been in exsistence for at least 35 years. It is iconic and is huge part of Jamaica's culinary landscape. The Pork Pit has outlasted and continues to outlast several other Jerk centers that have come and gone. The Jerk pork by far is the best, very juicy and... More
