Barry's Golden Jerk has limited offerings,takeout only, but what they offer is very good: chicken and pork, marinated and grilled, served with a wonderfully flavorful,not too hot sauce and locally baked bread. We spent a week on the Brac, tried Barry's twice. We missed talking to Barry-- but Ian filled in admirably. He was very friendly and helpful.

This is a must if you are on Cayman Brac. My wife and I had the chicken and pork and went back the next day it was so good. Barry is super friendly and the jerk is outstanding but not too hot. Open Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. This is a roadside shack near the airport and take out only but... More

After all the good reviews, I had to try this place. It did not disappoint, chicken wise. I would have liked to be able to get a side like rice or potatoes though. I think they only had bread. It's only open on some days of the week, so if you are only staying fora week, you may need to... More

I tried this place because of how unique it is and is the first dining establishment one sees when leaving the airport. This is a carry-out only restaurant offering chicken, pork, and fish. Each order contains a hearty portion of meat, bread, and a delicious spicy sauce. Perfect with a cold beer. The chap who runs the place is very... More

This is hands down the best food on the island. The young man that owns is very nice, it's a local favorite. If you go to Cayman Brac and you don't eat here, you're missing out on an incredible experience. When you pull up there will most likely be some local men sitting out front, on weekdays he opens for... More

If your in the Brac you have to try it. I can only speak of the chicken as I didn't try the pork. You can smell it cooking when your at the market grocery store and is a block away. The guy that got our chicken was very friendly and helpful! Please note this is not a sit down place,... More

Came to Brac with a friend who has a condo here & always looks forward to eating Barry's Golden Jerk chicken at least once a week. As a vegetarian I couldn't partake of his first order of take-away chicken (although it smelled devilishly delicious) but Barry told me if I came back two nights later he'd make me something special...which...

This is a little shack on the side of the road. Their food is excellent served with great sauce and some local bread. It's an island place so sometimes food isn't ready and you need to come back or they are closed but keep trying because it is so worth it!

We stopped by earlier in the day (6/1) and placed our order (with a deposit) for enough to feed four people...we ended up with enough to feed 8-10! Very good chicken, but make sure you venture to the grocery to get your own sides. Chicken comes with bread and extra sauce, but nothing else. Only open certain days of the... More

This is a stand attached to Edd's Place that sells freshly prepared Jerk chicken and pork. It is only available on the weekends. The nice lady at the department of tourism told us about it. She sid that the locals go crazy for it.
