This is a casual Jamaican place in Prospect Heights that serves Jamaican staples like jerk chicken and curry goat, and it’s all cheap, filling, no-nonsense stuff that you won’t need a knife to eat. If you’re looking to improve your takeout game, this is a good option. And if you want to hang out and drink, bring your own wine or beer (it’s BYOB) and claim one of the tables, and be sure to order your own personal side of plantains - you’ll want them.
