Definitely a Jamaican restaurant with open air seating a dozen feet from the charcoal fire with the split chickens sizzling. You present your order ticket and the chef chops the chicken into pieces. Not much finesse, but lots of authenticity. He turned a rack of ribs into hand-sized sections with five quick chops. The chicken was excellent, but you have... More
