Establishment
“Everything here is good. My favorite is the jerk pork, but my daughter tells me the oxtail is the way to go. They also make some interesting wrap sandwiches and have Jamaican-style meat turnovers. George the owner is a wonderful guy and has a great staff. Surprisingly the treats and goodies in here are really good homemade stuff too.”
