The food there is GREAT and the owner is super sweet and funny. I love to support local small businesses and this place is one of Richmond's best kept secrets! I will be back!

What You'll Get


Unlike cinematic love scenes, Jamaican food can be enjoyed in the company of parents without embarrassment. Dodge future moments of uneasiness with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of authentic Jamaican fare at The Jerk Pit on West Broad Street.

Each generously portioned plate of zesty Caribbean cuisine is crafted to order at The Jerk Pit, whose lengthy menu accommodates meat teeth and greenery gobblers alike. Spice-smitten diners can flirt with an assortment of jerk specialties, which, despite their name, make excellently warm dinner dates and rarely steal lollypops from baby doctors. Jerk kebabs come in chicken, shrimp, veggie, and combo varieties, each plate served with a savory side of seasoned rice ($7.50–$9.50 for three). Adventurous tongues can explore landscapes of curried goat ($9.50) or ox tails ($10.45); both traditional dishes come with rice and peas, steamed veggies, and fried plantains. Between bites, soothe overstimulated taste buds with house-brewed ginger beer ($1.75) or boonoonoonous, a blend of tropical fruits and liquefied bobsledding trivia ($2.79). This Groupon is good for dine-in or takeout.

About The Jerk Pit


Cooks at The Jerk Pit season chicken, shrimp, pork, and even vegetarian tempeh with Jamaican jerk spices, crafting traditional dishes suitable for a variety of diets. Inside the kitchen, aromas of slow-cooking meats waft through the air as chefs prep classics such as oxtail and curried goat. For lighter fare, they’ll crown mild curried-chicken salad with mango chutney for a dish that combines sweet and savory, like Shirley Temple’s daily bath in Worcestershire sauce.
