Informal Caribbean cafe specializing in jerk chicken, seafood dinners & classic side dishes.
Hands down one of my favorite places for Jerk Chicken. The chicken is always juicy, Smokey and so much flavor. I get the combination of grilled and fried with their Mac and cheese. Delicious!!
I had two deliveries from Jerky Jerk. After me second time trying them I had to put in a review. Their jerk chicken is so good! The first time I had them, it was catered to my job for Juneteenth. Everyone loved it. This time I ordered the Jerk stir fry. Everything was delicious. It was the right amount of spice and the veggies were fresh. Go try it! #blackowned
I am vegan and they worked really well with me on their Jerkitarian menu – this food it the spot and was so flavorful.
I ordered from Jerky Jerk today for the first time and used Uber eats. Overall the food, freshness, presentation, packaging, taste, delivery time were all good with one minor exception – The curry goat and curry chicken – gravy/sauce was too watery and the curry was extremely weak but otherwise tasty dishes. Feedback on the other dishes: *jerk chicken (dark meat) – excellent *beef patty – good but strange you had to select MEAT preparation type because I have never heard of such a thing ever with a Jamaican patty *plantains – great I would recommend this restaurant and will definitely order from them again.
Listen. I have been craving jerk food for the longest. Happened to jump on Postmates and saw that this restaurant had free delivery. Always a win in my book. Not many reviews, but I was optimistic with all the positives ones I did see, so I went for it. AND IT HIT EVERY SPOT I NEEDED IT TO. The food was delicious! I ordered the 1entree dinner with 1 side of Mac n cheese and also an ala carte order of rice and peas. Now, on to the breakdown of the food. The chicken was amazing. Dark meat, juicy…no complaints. Perfect blend of jerk spices.. The Mac n cheese was good as well BUT it was superrrrr cheesy. So as it got cold while eating, it wasn’t as yummy anymore (not a bad thing, just pointing out what I noticed). The rice and peas were great, also no complaints. The jerk sauce was the perfect level of spice. I was thoroughly impressed and so excited I have now found a new jerk spot close to home. All I was missing with the meal was some bread lol. Update: I was so obsessed from the first experience I had to order more. This time around I did candy yams instead of Mac n cheese. They were good, but the rice and peas had a sour smell to them. It definitely didn’t smell like that the first time I ordered. Not sure what was different this time around 🙁
I just ordered the 2 meat 2 side plate on Postmates and it was amazing! I got the dark jerk chicken and dark fried chicken and both were juicy and flavorful. I also got the candid yams and Mac and cheese and, again, both were amazing. To make things even better I also got a side of plantains which, you can never go wrong with plantains. Overall an amazing meal. I can only imagine how much better it would be if I were to dine in! Also very well priced! I’ll definitely be ordering again and visiting once we are no longer in Quarantine!!
My friends and I decided to check them out. It was our first time trying Caribbean food and we couldn’t get enough. We tried the oxtail with cabbage, jerky wings, jerky stir fry, nachos, tacos (w/ mango sauce), shrimp Alfredo & of course the famous jerky chicken with jerk sauce and rice as well as traditional Caribbean drinks. Yes. #Foodcomma is right! Haha The food was 5 s, and the staff was super friendly. They were very informative with the menu. We’ll definitely be back, order delivery and keep Jerky Jerk in mind for our next catering order!
I ordered the Curry Chicken, Jerky Veggie Stir-Fry, Jerky Curry Potatoes, Corn & Peppers, Plantains, Sweet potato fries and Mac N Cheese. Everything was SO yummy and I was completely satisfied with with the portion sizes and flavors!! Everything is made from scratch and is super fresh. I’ve been craving their food since the last time I ordered it. 10/10 recommend!
3.5 rounding up for friendly service. Jerk Chicken spots are plentiful in Chicago, but consistency is a tough find. I’ve learned to lower my expectations when it comes to the sides and focus on the proteins. Cabbage is usually overcooked, candied yams undercooked & often canned. .. mac n cheese is usually thrown together without any love & the same can be said of the rice n peas. While I can’t say Jerky Jerk hit a home run with the sides, the yams and cabbage were solid. The mac was basically Kraft and not very good at all. The chicken was the saving grace. Full of flavor from a smokey grill and spices. ..perfectly juicy as well. They wait wasn’t bad either, maybe 10 minutes which is amazing for a Jerk restaurant. The entire staff was friendly, the restaurant was spotless and the portions were in line with the pricing. I wouldn’t make a special trip, but nice option if in the area.
Jerky Jerk is DELICIOUS! Everything was made fresh and was super flavorful. I tried the Jerky Alfredo Pasta, and then a plate that included Jerk Chicken, Oxtails, Mac & Cheese and Rice & Peas. It’s the food dreams are made of! They also offer delivery in thoughtfully-made packaging. Highly recommend!
