I have passed by this spot several times over the years. I wanted jerk chicken so I decided to stop by. I placed my order by phone. The male answerer was nice, friendly. I ordered a jerk chicken dinner w/3 sides & an order of conch fritters. Jerk din was $14.95 & conch fritters was $9.95 plus tax & a bag tax(???). I made a plate when I got home to taste everything. It smelled good in the car but that’s where it ended. I opened the chicken container, it had fewer pieces than I’m used to plus the rice looked different. More like Mexican rice. It had gravy for rice which looked more than soup broth. Not a fan, kinda salty. The cabbage had a taste as if it was mixed in the same pot sweet potatoes were made. The mac & cheese did not taste cheesy, more mac than cheese. The chicken was drier than I have been used to. Only 1 jerk sauce for the chicken dinner but I got a gravy sauce & 2 ginger containers??? Wait!!!!!!!! No Jamaican bread?????????? Stunned. The conch fritters were ok. They tasted more like corn meal, less conch. My last 2 fav jerk places have closed(Kingston Jerk on 95th & Fire Jerk on 55th). I guess I am spoiled to their set up, taste. There must be a difference between Belize & Jamaican food. At least i patronized a local business.
WOW!! I never thought of myself as a jerk chicken fan and was on the fence about going here because of that. SO glad we did and this was the first of MANY visits! Restaurant was very clean, owner’s son working front extremely friendly, helpful and quick and most importantly food was DELICIOUS! We shared the conch fritters and the jerk chicken family meal. With the family meal we shared the sides plantains, steamed cabbage, rice and beans and added a small Mac and cheese. All these sides sound basic, right? No..they have so much flavor I was blown away! The cabbage we agreed was the best cabbage we have ever had and the gravy included for the rice and beans are out of this world. Jerk chicken has a lot of flavor but not uncomfortable spice or too much…it was fantastic! Planning on a visit in the next week or two. This place is a gem…if you haven’t been mark your calendar!
Excellent food. Only reason I’m not giving 5 stars is the employee wasn’t wearing a mask when I came in.
Always love the food from here! Loved the jerk chicken, rice and plantains. I ordered through their website and delivery was great.
I had actually never eaten at this location (I know, I know), but we got delivery from the Garifuna Flava flagship earlier this week. We ordered beef patties, a jerk/stewed chicken combo, and the red snapper meal. Yes to all of it. Beef patties are almost always good, and these were tasty. I’m generally not the biggest fan of jerk chicken because I find that it’s often dry. Not so here. Both the jerk and stewed chicken were tender and very flavorful. The red snapper meal was also delicious, and I enjoyed the rice and beans that accompanied both meals. The only thing I didn’t care for was the side of cabbage, and I would not choose that again. But I’m already looking forward to the next delivery!
I have to start by talking about the caramel pound cake. This is now one of my favorite desserts. It was fluffy. Not overly sweet like you would assume from caramel. Decadent. Amazing. The conch fritters had a spice that enveloped your entire mouth, but not in a way that was overpowering. The char on the jerk chicken wings was top notch, though the wings had very little meat. The Belizean chicken stew and rice and beans were my favorite. Never have I had chicken that was so melt in your mouth. The fried plantains were hefty and perfectly sweet. The mac and cheese was fine as was the beef patty. COVID-specific notes: They offer curbside pick-up, but you’ll have to sign the receipt.
This is my second time ordering in a two week period. I am thoroughly pleased again. If you don’t feel like cooking, order dinner from here. They make their orders quickly and they always taste hot, fresh, and tender when it arrives.
Absolutely phenomenal! Super authentic, chicken wings were perfectly cooked and marinated and spiced. Sauce was delectable. The potato salad is out of this world and the rice was on point. Wait staff was great. Whole experience was super authentic.
Join me as I continue my COVID-19 order-in culinary tour. Today we traveled to Belize. Wow. Wow. Wow. This is fantastic. It’s a “let’s use our hands and hunch over the plate” kind of meal. The jerk chicken is spicy enough to make your nose run a bit, but not so hot that you couldn’t taste everything else. Juicy and flavorful. The sauce tasted great on the jerk tacos, and all the rest of the food, too. I’m always disappointed with Mac and cheese. This was really good, though. They let the roux really darken. It even tasted like they added chicken stock for flavor. Rice and beans were okay. A nice complement for the chicken. Rice and peas didn’t seem chock full of peas. Do I even need to say the caramel pound cake was delicious? You read the earlier part of the review. Is this really where you think they dropped the ball? Really great. Definitely will be back. If you order through Uber Eats you can throw a little extra cash at the owners to ensure they stick around in these difficult time.
