I'm not sure I have had better Bahamian food. The rice & peas was fantastic, chicken terrific, and plantains to die for. The building and setting are nothing fancy, but I wish we had found it earlier in our stay as we would have been repeat customers.

Wow, not quick service but excellent local food in large quantities and inexpensive. Wish I had visited earlier in our trip and would have gone several times.

This is a nice place to stop and grab something tasty and cheap. We had hamburgers, cracked chicken, and rice and peas. All were good and very affordable. Call ahead and it can be ready when you arrive!

If you are short on time or just have a craving for a good hamburger, this is a great place. The Forrest also has great Bahamian fare.

We got a variety of burgers and ribs, and enjoyed a beer or two while waiting for it all to be prepared at the available picnic tables. Food was good and portions were generous.

You can't go wrong with the food or the service at Forest 2. Consistently fresh and deeeelish. Clean and friendly, nice place to sit and enjoy Bahamian cuisine.

..take out, eat outside, and there are no better burgers anywhere. Located right on the main road, it's simply fun and delicious.

The BBQ items are a must try! The pork ribs are so tender we couldn't tell the difference from the chicken! Portions are huge enough for two to share. The forest burger is also delicious.

We ate here and it is clearly a local favorite, was jam packed and tasted great. The wait was a little long but it was all fresh!

As already noted, Forest 2 is a convenient take-out restaurant (though it also has some picnic tables). The cracked conch was good, but certainly not the best I had on the island. The burgers, however, are probably the best you'll find in the area. Prices are quite reason ahi for the amount of food as well.
