The speed of the to go order was slow. I placed an order @4:45 pm and arrived at the restuarant @ 5:45. I had to wait 30 minutes after I arrived to get my food.

So, if you have a craving for some Chicken Jerk or want to try their ridiculous Oxtail with gravy... Jamaica Jerk is on the top of my list. As you walk in, you will be met with the delicious aromas of Jamaican cuisine and two very friendly faces willing to share stories of their homeland. If you are in the area- Jamaica Jerk is definitely a must!

Food is excellently prepared, and at a most reasonable price.

From Our Editors

Under the esteemed tutelage of owner-and-operator chef Waite, Jamaica Jerk crafts a menu of made-from-scratch Jamaican and Caribbean dishes which have garnered positive press from the Chicago Tribune and Time Out Chicago. A variety of seafood starters raid the pantries of orca whales for fresh morsels of crab, shrimp, and salt fish. Coconut and zesty jerk sauce drizzle over meaty entrees of chicken, oxtail, and curried goat, escorted by hearty sides such as fried plantains and candied yams. Patrons discuss steel-drum interpretations of Beethoven’s Fifth while sipping cappuccino and fruit drinks within the eatery’s faux tropical paradise, contained within large ocean murals, trellis-lined walls, and an indoor gazebo.
