We stopped here for lunch with our large group of 16 after spending a couple of hours visiting the Blue Hole. It was on the way back to our hotel in Runaway Bay and had been recommended by many including the golf caddies, the resort staff, and others. At first it looked like the place was packed since the parking lot was full of tour vans and small buses. However, there is ample space inside the restaurant. It's a semi outdoor set-up with a busy take-out line. Be aware that it could get hot as there is no a/c since you sit inside open-air, covered areas. We ate on property and waited a little longer than expected for our food. But it was worth it. Price was affordable. Rum Ribs are the special on Tuesdays and we were there on a Tuesday. $15 USD for a rack of juicy, delicious ribs. The jerk chicken had a dry rub that was delicious but we all found the chicken to be on the dry side. Flavor was great though. The festival bread was VERY good as was the corn. Corn was $1 USD. Jerk chicken was sold as quarter, half, or whole chicken. I think the half chicken was $10 USD. Items are a la carte. Definitely worth the stop if you're in the area.

We stopped here for lunch after our excursion to the Blue Hole. The jerk chicken and pork are amazing. Make sure to check the grill in the back where they cook the chicken for about 30min and the pork for about 4-5 hours.

Phil Lafayette Tours brought us here before taking us back to the ship so that we could get some authentic Jamaican food. While it was a quick stop and not a full meal, everything we ate was excellent. We had the chicken, pork and festival bread. All fantastic.

Authentic roadside food at a great price. The place smells great from the wood used to smoke the food. The food tastes even better! We loved it!

Very good Jerk. Loved both the chicken and the pork. Everything else was ok but the jerk was great. Wanted some after I returned to MN! Use the hot jerk sauce they bring with it! Add a little spice to it. And also have a Red stripe with it! Balances the flavor great!
Great experience when visiting Jamaica!
