Real Jamaican Jerk Chicken. That’s it. F-g good. I tried it a few months ago with Councilwoman Denise Ridley right before COVID hit as part of a Greenville food tour post (coming soon) and was absolutely blown away. The Jerk Chicken is finger-licking good. They also have a food truck that I’ve seen downtown you can get their yummy food from. They are available for take-0ut and delivery on Door Dash, Uber Eats and Post Mates.

When our offices were on Newark Ave right by Gia Gelato, I was there every single morning getting their amazing Iced Coffee (they use coffee as ice-cubes) I was so addicted. When I was hungover I would ever their full breakfast that hit the spot. But the best part of this best are the owners, the most friendly ladies you’ll meet. So sweet.
