I'm use to eating jerk chicken so there's no surprise I wanted to try this place out. However I was shocked to find jerk brisket on the menu. I was not disappointed! The brisket was cooked very well, the slaw was tangy and tasty. Not a huge fan of the jerk max&cheese. It really tasted as if they took the jerk sauce and stirred it in the mac&cheese. That made it spicy and cheesy. The atmosphere is nice especially with the non stop reggae music playing. Good luck with finding a place to park.
