Very good but not juicy and tasteful enough. Taste could've really been a lot stronger with both the chicken and pork jerk. The fried plantains though we absolutely delicious.

The jerk season wings with the scotch bonnet pepper were hot hot hot but great flavor. The regular Jerk Chicken was amazing. Everyone in our group completely enjoyed this stop. Thank you Javia Shaw for taking us to the Pork Pit.

I personally thought it was much better than scotchies! Besides scotchies is literally in the middle of no where and I didn't think the staff were that friendly. Also the portions at scotchies were much smaller than pork pit. Pork pit was very tasty! Scotchies probably has a nicer restaurant/ atmosphere but definitely not better food.

We've always gotten ours to go but the food is great and reasonably priced. When we first started visiting Negril it was between a 1 1/2 hour and a 3 hour trip, depending on how many dogs and goats the driver had to get out and shoo off of the road. The jerked pork made a great way to kill... More

Went in April and the pork and chicken were outstanding. They sell the chicken by the quarter and the pork by the 1/4, 1/2 and pound. Would recommend anyone to try it. Make sure to go early and beat the crowds as it gets pretty busy later in the afternoon.
