Their sign also says "Jerk Chicken XPress." On the advice of the friendly counter lady (who seemed to be the owner), I ordered a quarter jerk chicken with vegetables, which was $6.50. The chicken was just pretty good, and the vegetables weren't very good. The plantains were woody, the island slaw bland, and the dirty rice dry.

The lady pointed out several times that the sorrel was homemade.
