Our meals were fresh and extremely tasty. I ... read more

Initially when I called that wasn't many items that was still left which made me a little weary but I found something on the menu the jerk chicken and two sides that absolutely made up for what was not available. They definitely have good food and I would recommend this place.

We ordered take out smothered porkchops and curried chicken. The porkchops were meaty and not over done. The curried chicken was slightly spicy and made West Indian style with coconut milk. Over all the meal was extremely satisfying. I definitely recommend this place that wants good soul food. Oh by the way, the sides were awesome.
Dianne Houston-Crockett via - Aug 13, 2020
Don’t listen to the few that this place isn’t good, just ordered from here and the food was delicious and handled with care. Will definitely order again!!
