Stayed in Boddentown just down the road from Chester's. Decided to try it because it was quick and close (and we hadnt been there yet) Ended up being very surprised. Its an unassuming building and has a "fast food" feel, but it was anything but....More

We went here one night on a whim and we are happy we did! The wrap, seafood chowder and chicken tenders were great (and affordable!) The hamburger kind of had a sweet taste.

Flavor was good, but the meat was mostly bones, surprising for a lace who has a butcher shop behind building? rice and beans were the best I had on the island!

Just get the jerk things, don't bother with the other stuff. Jerk chicken is to die for! Prepare to wait a while for food to be done, maybe 20 min or so. Good for takeout, or you can sit at the tables, with chickens for...More

This is definitely a "local" eat and judging by the cars coming and going, a local favourite. It is best to call ahead for your order to avoid prolong wait time.

I had lunch at Rankin's Jerk a few days ago and enjoyed my delicious jerk pork, rice and peas with tasty corn bread on the side. The atmosphere was relaxed and conducive to good conversation.

How far are you from where the Norwegian cruise ships dock?

Response from Greg R | Reviewed this property |
I would imagine the Norwegian hits the docks where any other ship does so I would imagine about 20-25m drive
Are they open on Sunday afternoons and evenings? (That's the day we arrive.)
