If you like spicy, then you'll love the jerk chicken! The food here is very good. I definitely recommend the chicken or the curry goat.

I love the spinach. Beans and rice are great. Generally I am not a fan of chicken with bones - but this is worth the effort. Nice level of spice / kick to it. Grilled spot-on. Quick lunch spot.

Luckily, we came across The Island Spot while searching TripAdvisor for a lunch spot close to where we were staying in Carrollton.

Stopped in a late on weekday afternoon to get some curry goat and was not disappointed. A few more bones than I would like, but still plenty of meat. I will return.

We went as a group for brunch on Sunday and we had a great time. The food was delicious and it is a great location. Lots of good choices are on the menu and the drinks are really good. Definitely recommend if you are in the mood for a little island getaway in the state of Texas.

We had meat patties, jerk chicken, salad with mango dressing and french fries. Everything was delicious. The service wasvery good and we thought the food authentic. We've been to Jamaica twice.

Staff are friendly and on the spot. Food was good and lunch prices not bad. Average $10 a person. Tried jerk chicken. It was nice and spicey. Tried coconut shrimp. Wasn't from a box! Fresh! Not sure what the salty sauce was.

The meal was served in a nice atmosphere and tasted as authentic as could be expected. While jerk was not prepared on a grill, the food was tasty.

Description
Island life is far superior to regular life partly because of the laid-back attitudes, and partly because of fried plantain. Leave your crazy schedule at home and sit back to enjoy a Jamaican-inspired meal at The Island Spot, a delightful lunch or dinner destination serving up exotically spiced tropical treats.

The enticing menu includes vacation staples such as Jerk Chicken (served with two sides), Signature BBQ Ribs, succulent Curry Shrimp, and so much more. Take a break from ho-hum winter blues and spice up your lunch or dinner at this oasis in the city.
