You cannot visit Silver Spring without taking the opportunity to eat at Negril. If you enjoy Caribbean food then stop by Negril.

Disappointed to the point of tears (of frustration). When I walked into the store it was empty and my friend went ahead of me. At this point I had 26 minutes on my meter. She ordered two chicken roties, I ordered a vegetable roti, 1 cookie and a sorrell. Twenty minutes later I watched as SEVERAL customers who walked in... More

Nice small place, a lot of things frozen, but good to-go, fast, and nice staff. We got to-go dinner - I got the veggie roti and my husband got jerk chicken. We have both had better Jamaican food in New England, but this is the best we have had in the DC area. Not as many vegetarian options as I... More

I only ever get coco bread, beef patties, and jerk chicken sandwiches. It's all you need. Jamaican food rocks but you need to make sure it's not over-the-top. Get a coco bread and get a beef patty. Open the bread and put the beef patty inside. Ask for the "fish sauce" and drizzle that on. Yummmmmm. The juice is amazing... More

Negril offers great food for very reasonable prices. The food is really delicious especially if you like Caribbean food.

I haven't eaten at this particular place, but I have eaten in the Negrils in downtown Silver Spring. Was laughing at the comment one reviewer wrote saying the Jamaican patties were Flakey. These patties come frozen, they are not made from the restaurant. Negril just heats them up in their oven, for $1.75 each is pretty expensive.

I'm so glad I gave this place a try! The food is super tasty and cooked well. The staff is extremely friendly. I didn't know what to pick and they offered me some samples which were all very good. I ordered the Coco bread, beef patties, and oxtail which comes with rice and beans and some vegetables. Portions are big!... More

Anyone who have this less than five stars is an idiot. This is hands down the most amazing Jamaican food ice ever had and up there for any kind of food. You need to go for informal lunch or a snack. Don't get a real meal. Stick to appetizers. Meatloaf is the best thing you can get here, but they're... More
