    For over 10 years, I've been getting the Spicy Chicken Pita here.. My dad's worked in the area for 26 and still orders this too... Plantains were delicious too!

    Jerk pork is a winner but only served on Wednesdays and Fridays. Get it as a sandwich but be prepared to eat it with a fork because it's a big pile of messy deliciousness.
