This roadside home-style take-out joint is only open intermittently so do stop in when you see their 'Open' sign!

Wonderful Jerk Chicken and Pork. Cool pictures of Cayman history adorn the walls. Good food, friendly staff, and the requisite chickens in the front yard. A totally Cayman experience!

This is a small place that is great for "take away." The portions are very good and the pork jerk and the fried plantains were great.
