After having Jerk chicken at the Hotel buffet and on the beach hut, we asked a local to bring us to the best Jerk chicken place (in his opinion) and he brought us to the PORK PIT. Compared to the other places we had tried, the chicken was cooked in the traditional style and was delicious. We had both jerk... More

We stopped here on our way back to airport. The food was amazing. All cooked on an open fire pit on patio. Quick service and fun casual atmosphere to experience jerk pork and all the local sides! Rice and peas, plantains, etc.

Don't come here for fancy food or good service. Walk up to the window, tell the dreadlock dude with the big chopper you want some chicken and unless you're a brave soul ask for the hot sauce on the side. They Red Stripe is served cold and there is shady seating. People are friendly in a Yardy way.

You MUST visit The Pork Pit. They have the best Jerk I've ever tasted! They do it in front of you and the food is fantastic. We had the Jerk Pork and the Jerk Chicken and we were very happy.

A must do in MoBay if you are a fan of BBQ. The jerk Pork, jerk chicken and all the other items are awesome. A little pricey but you get a lot of food. I recommend the jerk chicken and the ribs. SO GOOD. It has an outdoor backyard feel to it and after you make and pay for your... More

Having had the opportunity to go to both Scotchies and Pork Pit, the food was just average here. The pork was juicy, but the chicken was extremely dry. I didn't like how the cashier taking my order wouldn't give me the wifi password after I left her a tip. Also, the ambiance is not as nice compared to Scotchies. The... More
