They have great chicken and chips here. We pick this up and take it down to the beach. Jamaica know how to make chicken and the chips here are great. This isn't a sit down place, more like a fast food joint back in the states.

The goat and oxtail were awesome! We were in Jamaica for a cruise destination. We booked an excursion outside of the cruise line and we asked our driver to recommend a great Jamaican restaurant after our excursion was over. He suggested we try goat and took us to Jerky's where the locals eat. The food was tender and flavorful and very inexpensive. Even our teenage girls really enjoyed it! Get there early, as everything is made very fresh, so when the goat and oxtail entrees are gone, they are gone. It is very inexpensive and if I lived in Jamaica, we would eat here often. It is located about a 7-10 minutes drive from the cruise terminal in Montego Bay. The cook cuts the meat in front of you, so there are small pieces of bone in each meal. Make sure you check the meat before children eat the entree, so they don't choke on a diced up chicken, goat or oxtail bone. Very inexpensive and it has a bar too with outside seating. Try the habanero sauce for an extra kick and sinus opener! Enjoy friends!

We stopped on the way back from Montego Bay at approx. 8:15pm on a Saturday night.
We had to ask to find because the strip in Runaway Bay looks so much different from a few years back.
We actually passed a few other jerk pan vendors along the way but that would not do. I wanted Jerky's pork and chicken.
We found it. Venue had changed significantly - fast food set up. There was no jerk. No jerk chicken, no jerk pork.
We left disappointed.

Very basic food served in containers, plastic forks, has the air of a working man's establishment just right for a quick bite and away. It suited us fine on our way back home from St. Ann very popular with the locals. Food was ok would recommend it for a quick stop.

I went in looking for oxtails, however most of the food was finished and they were sown to fried chicken, fish, and fries. I also wanted to try the cow foot and it too was long gone. I guess you must arrive before 6 pm to get the good dishes. However, the fried chicken was good and hot.

The parking lot was packed. This is a very busy shopping plaza for locals.
