Though the Caribbean isles are well-known to outsiders, Caribbean cuisine remains a hidden gem due to tourists frequently subsisting solely off a paste made from sand, ocean water, and pureed linen pants. Uncover the edible treasure of the tropics with today’s deal: for $5, you get $10 worth of authentic Jamaican fare and drinks at Caribbean Queen. Using authentic, imported ingredients and spices from islands, Caribbean Queen's chef have crafted a main menu ripe with traditional island-hopping entrees ($6–$10.50) such as jerk chicken, beef stew, and oxtails, plus savory dishes for vegetarian and vegan diners. Dinnertime drop-ins can pair plates with a range of sides and thirst quenchers, while early risers refuel with breakfast fare, including French toast and fresh orange juice.
- Soooo Yummy!!!! This is the best Jamacian food I've ever had! The jerk chicken is spiced perfectly, I still had a tingly spicy, smokey [sic] aftertaste 10 minutes later. The beef patties (empanatas) are good and the plantains are perfect, tender and sweet. – Lynn I., Yelp
- The food here is amazing. The meat patties are amazing and so is the ox tail. – Google Mapper on 11/28/2007
