Super cool people food excflle best jerk chicken i ever had
I Just came from Jamaica and I must say this is the best of all the restaurants I have tried here thus far.
The food was excellent. Service was quick and friendly. I am sorry I didn't discover it sooner
Great food great service
It was so good, I forgot I missed my Louisiana food!
I love that place the restuarnt is on point at all times and I'm just not saying that because I'm good friends with the owner.... I recomend all the items on the menu everything is good... Claudette and Peter are great cooks remind me of the Island and I've never been there as yet but will soon go.... Go down there you will be coming back whenever you feel to eat Jamaican food....
This place was suggested to me. Since I was in the area, I stopped by. They have a small and limited menu. However the food is pretty tasty.
They even serve curried goat. I had the chicken. They made it while I waited. My plate came with fried plantains, hella yummy. The curry was super tasty, it reminded me of a friend of mines Mom's home cooking. I had heard that the food can run on the spicy side, so I ordered it NOT spicy.
I also had the beef patty. This was tasty too. Kinda like an empanda. They offer it in chicken too.
The place is a small little hole in the wall. There is a TV available for customers to watch. The seating is limited but totally worth it.
Some of the best jerked chicken I've had in awhile
Food old n place is as hot ass Jamaica plus flyss
Best Caribbean food in Diego!!
Food. Was cold n not edible waste of money is there any good jamaican food in san diego still searching
Wonderful Jamaican food. A lot better than the other Jamaican restaurants in San Diego. Definitely worth a try.
Great food the lady taking orders is a turn off though. Unpleasant and unwelcoming but besides that it was good food.
Ive been in san diego almost 3 years trying to find a restaurant that taste like jamaican food. I am full blown Jamaica so i know what the food should take like! Their curry goats was tasteful a little salty but overall good. I had their chicken and rice it was great as well!
Definitely a must go anytime your in the area they have great curry goat and the jerked chicken and beef and chicken patty's are amazing
This place was so good. The chicken was good and spicy. And not melt your face off spicy. My husband had the goat curry and it was melt off the bone good. The small plate is about 10$ and it filled us up with some to take home. A very good place. The man running it took care of us and the food was prepared and brought to us quickly. Overall a very pleasant place with authentic good food.
The guy forgot/didn't hear my order, so I was a bit sad not getting my food along with everyone else... Also he was out of most stuff by 6pm. But what we got tasted good.
Who doesn't love Jamaican food. So good! I recommend to come to this place when you want some Caribbean food! Love it! Awesomeness!!
This place is bomb!!! I've been coming here since i was in high school... Best island food you'll grt in the southeast of san diego!
best food ever!! no wait.. everything is flavorful.. perfect price
This place has an always was the best Caribbean cuisine ever since I moved here in 2005. Yes its small but, so what, you cant beat the flavor. I've had plenty carribian food and this one is by far the best.
Reminded me of our three years in the DR. Slightly different but the goat was just the same served with fried bananas, rice, and cabbage salad. Tasty empanadas.
Went here because of other reviews at different Jamaican eateries, and we were NOT disappointed whatsoever. Fantastic little joint, quick service respectful nice staff, and the food is exactly what you'd want if the Island mood hits you!
The curry goat and the jerk chicken are recommended.
As always nothing but the best. From day one love love love. Sooo yummy
Hands down, San Diego's Family owned Jamaican restaurant. Nobody can compete with the flavor, quality put into every serving. Peter is the best, and always serves GOOD portions when he's there. It's WELL worth the drive. So GET THERE. NEEDS TO BE SHOWCASED ON GUY FIETTI'S "DRIVE-INS DINERS AND DIVES" ASAP!
Great food with lots of flavor. Good customer service as well. I had the jerk chicken combo. Ordered a small and I still have leftovers!! I'll be going back to try the oxtails.
Had the jerk chicken, curry chicken, cabbage, rice and peas. The food was very good! I hadn't tried many Caribbean restaurants here in CA but this one hits the spot! Great hospitality as well! Will be returning to try some of the other menu items!
Best in the city....whenever I want to feel like I'm next to my mom I come eat here.
Delicious vegan options in a friendly setting. Community driven goodness!
Great carribean food. Awesome pies too!
The food here is the bomb!!!!! I had the brown stewed fish and I'm still craving it few days later. I was visiting the San Diego area and had to drive a good distance to get to the place, but it was worth every mile! The customer service is good also. Highly recommend.
Delicious food and really good service. No matter what I ordered I was never disappointed.
Service was great ,food was excellent. A very pleasant place to eat are do takeout. Perfect customer service
Make no mistake, it's located in the hood but it's WORTH the trip! My favorite Caribbean Restaurant! Great atmosphere, great food!
Phenomenal eating establishment. Great tasting food, great customer service.
I got the brown stew chicken. It was ok. Nothi g to rave about. Customer service was good.
It's off the hook great food great customer service
Always slow service but typically worth the wait. Love the veggie patties. Best jerk chicken in San Diego.
Have eaten caribbean food in cities across the world and this spot holds its own. Jerk chicken plate was 🔥. Very affordable and food came out quickly.
My new favorite Caribbean restaurant in San Diego. I had really good food here.
One of my 2 favorite Caribbean establishments. Delicious!
Excellent food. Great Jamaican style ginger beer.
LISTEN IF U DO NOT EAT HERE JUST EAT MCDONALDS BECAUSE NO ONE IS MAKIN FOOD LIKE THIS...THE ABSOLUTE BEST CARIBBEAN/ JAMAICAN CUISINE IVE EVER TASTED...DO NOT GO ANY PLACE BUT HERE INCREDIBLE FOOD N DESSERTS...AND PEOPLE.
The food was really really good. Very authentic Caribbean. Service was friendly and the food was ready in a timely manner. My husband and I went for lunch and we did take out. Yes, I highly recommend.
Ox Tail is delicious! But A bit pricey....and venue needs major improvements. Not ideal for a Romantic date but greatbplace for lunch.
The food is absolutely tasty and addicting. Yes, it is that good. Make sure to get the oxtail plate.
The food here is extremely authentic!! If you are in San Diego don't miss out
Great food, great service👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽
Their food is yummy!!!! It tastes authentic! I spent years in the east coast having Jamaican food.7 was delighted to have some here in Southern California
Some of the best flavors of any restaurant I've had in San Diego. Extremely tender meat, friendly staff, and good portions.
The food is delicious and the service was great!!!
The Jerk chicken is really good and spicy 😋
Simply delicious!! Oxtails was on point. Beans and Rice, amazing!! Veggies, yummy!! And my pineapple ginger, refreshing!!! I will be back!!!
This place had the best jerk chicken and rice! The people working are so friendly. Really good food!
Had the jerk chicken, when they say comfort food, this is it. Man I was in my glory, everything was delicious. I enjoyed everything but my favorite was the vegetables, a cabbage mix. I will go back many times over.
Really love the food. However, when we visited the only accepted cash and the air conditioner was a fan. We were there during the summer and it was very uncomfortable inside. I had the goat my wife had the jerk chicken and both were wonderfully cooked and done. We've been back since then but we do it during the winter when it's cooler
Great casual place. Lot of people getting take-away, but it was great to eat in too. Loved the curry goat, and plentiful portions.
Nicely fresh cooked curry goat !
They are amaaaaaazing!!!. I love them with all my heart and soul. Lol. I hope they never retire!!😂😂. Seriously though their food is great and not expensive.
Don't expect this place to be open during their posted business hours. Second time I've gone out of my way to come here and they're been closed.
Good food. terrible service
I've been coming to this place for a while and can't believe I haven't written a review. The owner, Peter is always friendly and welcoming. The food is cooked fresh and delicious. My daughter and I have tried the oxtail with rice and peas, curry goat with rice and peas, and all three of the chicken, beef and vegetable patties. Their drink selection is good as well - Ting, Cola Champagne, etc. They also carry bun and cheese for Easter.
I'm already a regular here and will continue to be!
The service is constantly swift, awesome character, nice staff. Will come back again when I am here.
Awesome food great service
First time going here, they had delicious food, great service and a plentiful meal (for a big family). We ordered a large goat curry (12.50 for large), ox tail, and jerk chicken.
Also we ordered the patty (beef and chicken) it was delicious. The patty is like an breaded empanada with meat inside...
A lot of people were coming in ordering takeout, and also a few people eating inside.
Everything came out great and we enjoyed our meal (even had leftovers).
The environment is what's expected on Imperial Ave. But the friendly service and delicious food is what gave this review 5 stars!
The customer service is constantly speedy, lovely ambience, very welcoming staff members. I will visit again when I arrive nearby.
This location offered lots of tasty Caribbean dishes at an affordable price. I placed an order for takeout and was so surprised at the amount of food provided upon receipt. It was an unforgettable experience. Food was tasty and was well cooked. Make no mistake, I'm definitely looking forward to my next visit!... "Yum yum" 😜😜😜
Tried this place already with my friend and I am obsessed since then. I enjoyed the good mood and delicious food and beverages. I recommend this place.
Very well seasoned food.
Goat curry, jerk chicken, oxtail were all Irie!
Food came out in a reasonable amount of time.
