We went on a Friday night and although the staff was very friendly, it was PACKED. There was a waiting line but the people sitting were there to stay for a while (drinks and live island music). The food was okay and drinks were good....More

If you are hungry they serve a huge burger. Fun tropical island theme. Unfortunately the food quality wasn’t that good, would have eaten at burger king over this place. Many locals seem to like it but place is run down and smells of grease.

Just go! Everything is delicious. The service is fast and friendly. The portions are large. It’s got a great vibe and is the best Jamaican/Caribbean food in North Dallas.

First time visitor, and loved it! The sampler platter and the 3 meat entree were both delicious. The meat patty was very much what I recall from the Caribbean, and the wings were delightfully sticky with a glazed honey-bbq. The brown stew chicken is ok,...More

Visited on a Friday night. The live music playing was really good. The place was packed. The sign "wait to be seated" translates to "soon come" Jamaican style. Took a little effort and patience to get seated ( we almost left) but in the end...More

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. As soon as I saw a description of the Caribbean and jerk-style cuisine, there was no hesitation in mapping our route to enjoy...More

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.
