Thanks Guy for the recommendation. We went for lunch today. What a great place!

There were lots of sandwiches on the menu, but we missed breakfast and ordered "dinners". We were hungry! I had the jerk chicken, rice/beans and collard greens. My wife ordered the fish, rice/beans and cabbage.

The fish (Red Snapper) was a little "boney", but in a delicious tomato and onion sauce. It was worth the digging around, but may turn off some because of the bones. I'd order it again...my wife wouldn't---but only because of the bones. Great cabbage too.

There was no argument whatsoever about the jerk chicken! Fantastic! Spicy, but full of flavor. The greens were the best I've ever had---tasty, but not overpowering. I added lots of hot sauce to my beans (peas) and rice.

We each had two bottles of Jamaican soda. My wife had the ginger beer (which I'd compare to really really spicy ginger ale). I had the grape, which I'd also recommend...and I normally never order grape soda.

Total bill: $24 plus tip for a whole lot of food served in a humble, clean place with friendly service. Didn't even have room for the guava ice cream!

Tony's is on its way to becoming a NEPA gem...and we WILL be back soon! Highly recommended.
