    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.

    Every Wednesday they do BBQ Jerk Pork on a platter or salad. It's to die for if you like spicy jerk seasoning! I get it over a salad for just under $10!

    Get the jerk chicken - it's very moist! And the patio area in the back is great for a nice lunch break on a sunny day.

    The jerk chicken burrito is off-menu, massive, and tasty. Be sure to smother it with primo sauce.

    Order the jerk pork sandwich, or the jerk pork burrito, or REALLY ANYTHING WITH THE PORK. Check beforehand, as they don't have it every day of the week.
