I am glad to have this restaurant in the area, my first time there I was not so impressed. Maybe the next time will be better. I order an lunch Oxtail off the menu for $13. It came with rice, cabbage, and (1) plantain. I...should have just got the jerk if that's what they specialize in. My oxtail needed more flavor. It just had a surface taste like the meat needed to be marinated or something. I always ask for extra sauce on my white rice and I am glad I did. I was missing the experience because it was not up to par with Jamaican Food standards. Normally when you are really hungry anything taste good. I was helping a friend move that day and was super hungry when I got the meal. It was just not my cup of tea. It did start to taste better as I was eating. Maybe it was just a bad day but I am willing to try again.More

Came across this place while looking for something new to eat/order. Was really excited looking at the menu as we haven't had jerk chicken since being in jamaica a few years back. Ordered for delivery and the jerk chicken was good but the wings we...got seemed undercooked. Probably will give it another shot, hopefully will be better next time.More

I would like to warn anyone that has never eaten at this restaurant to make sure you check your order before you leave the restaurant. I was there and ordered oxtails the owner Penny made the order put oxtails on the top and chicken on...the bottom. When I got home I noticed the chicken buried in the bottom..I called back and complained with my receipt and they said it was no way I had chicken I took a picture and sent it to them and again they denied putting the chicken in there...I have never seen such lack of respect and poor customer service......Please spend your money someplace else these people are con artists.More

I called for an order to be delivered and within 20 mins the food was at my office door. The jerk was delicious!!! It was super spicy (next time I might get mild or honey version) but soooo good. The cabbage and salad were fresh...as were the dressings. The customer services was accomodating, polite and efficient. I will order from them, time and time again.More
