Kelly's jerk chicken is the best outside of Jamaica. Their food is as authentic as it gets. The sides: squash, collards, and cornbread are perfect accompaniments. This place is a treat for your tastebuds. We love it!

It looked pretty old to me, it was hard finding on the street! The food was great:) if you are not into very spicy food DO NOT go for the spicy:) it'd be too spicy for normal taste. There is this regular spice option which...More
