This Caribbean spot doesn’t feel too beachy - it’s in a dark space across the street from a giant roller coaster - but it’s a good spot for a fun group dinner, especially on the weekends when they have live music. The food, which includes things like BBQ glazed shrimp and curry goat, is packed with spices and is quite affordable - a large portion of jerk chicken with rice, peas, and plantains is less than $10.
