This is a tiny eatery nestled across from the Hillcrest Mall on E. Main St. Spartanburg. If you like Caribbean Jerk Chicken and other island specialties, this place is worth the stop.

We stopped here while passing through Spartanburg and enjoyed the Cuban sandwich. Food was good. Thought it was odd to eat indoors on outdoor furniture, but it was no big deal. Nice people.

I am not sure... there are black beans, plantains, and some other "sides" that could be your main meal, but not sure if they are cooked with a meat stock or not. You could always go there for a coffee and dessert - rice... More
