Quick-service jerk chicken joint

Our Review

Featured by the Food Network's Jeff "Sandwich King" Mauro, Jerky Jerk is one of the more discouraging looking jerk chicken joints. And the rub on the whole jerk chicken is mild relative to pretty much any other jerk you might run across in town. That magical alchemy of allspice and scotch bonnet is way down in the mix, relative to the smoky intensity of the finish. That said, the jerk sauce itself is on the money, sharp and sweet. A whole chicken goes for a very reasonable $10.95, and though the dry-but-all-spicy rice and beans and the cabbage, cooked down with whole thyme sprigs, seems dear at $3.99 apiece, they are amply portioned. What else? Just the basics: curried goat; chicken and oxtails; Mrs. Brown's stew; jerk burritos, wraps, and sandwiches; and an accommodating "jerkatarian menu," with curried potatoes and vegetable-jerk stir fry.
