Awesome, authentic lunch experience! Get the jerk chicken and festival (fried dough... yum!!!). Also, the Appleton Reserve rum n' cokes hit the spot! The only down side is it's a busy spot, but that just speaks for how good the food is. Enjoy mon!

You sit at tables under s straw roof. Your food comes wrapped in tinfoil on a styrofoam plate. You use a plastic fork and knife. It's not luxurious, but oh my is it ever tasty!

We tried the chicken, pork, rice, and festival. It was all amazing, but the pork was the BEST. SO delicious! Especially with the hot sauce! Service was super fast and all the employees we encountered were very friendly.

Meats are grilled over wood fired, delicious jerk flavor. Festival is a Jamaican long hushpuppy, kind of...delicious. Loved the rice and peas as well and also Sweet Potato pudding, which is more like a slice of pie. Awesome.

A must visit if you are in the area. Especially on Thursday because they only have ribs on Thursdays.

Not the best thing to do if you are not from there and use to walking the roads. No one will harm you but there are no sidewalks. You can get hit by a car easily.

We did Scotchies at the end of a "Peat Taylor" tour. So not sure of Taxi cost. If your out on a tour just ask if they can stop there for a quick lunch.
