The chef/owner & the server Andre were very welcoming! Very clean & satisfying food. We even got a Jamaican lesson on how to cook their famous Ackee & a free tasting. Thank you for making our vacation so wonderful! ~ CatJWill

We stopped here one day for lunch and had two great jerk chicken plates. Service was friendly but leisurely. Food was made fresh to order and we watched him grilling our chickens on the spot. Our meals and two red stripes were about $25 USD. Very flavorful and very good portions. I highly recommend Serious Chicken!

Went for lunch in March 2013. The Serious Chicken is great. You get chicken and sauce, vedge, rice and peas and a biscuit, all for a great price. The owner/chef we talked with was a true getleman. It was a fun and yummy experience!

Wonderful service by the sweetest woman. Cute little spot for lunch with both indoor and outdoor seating. Super cheap! We met and gave props to the chef, totally awesome dude. Highly recommended.

When we arrived, Felix asked if we wanted rice and peas to which we said yes. There was no discussion as to what they would come with, but as the restaurant title indicates - it was chicken. Don't expect a menu, but do expect very tasty chicken, friendly service and a relaxing vibe.

I recommend heading out One Love Drive on West End Negril and discovering the great value Jamaican restaurants such as Serious Chicken for favoursome dishes and get the true meaning of finger liking taste. Felix has run the place for many years and a fan base returns year after year. Callaloo is a mus! Budget meals with a real Negril... More

The serious chicken is an excellent, down to earth eating experience. The food is amazing and it really features food with real soul to it.
