Pick Any 1 Meat + 1 Side

This little "hole-in-the-wall" place serves up some of the best jerk food we've ever had outside of Jamaica. We were staying at an AirBnB about a 5-minute walk from this place. We've already eaten there twice. The sauce they make is nothing short of amazing. Very spicy! So consider yourself warned. And the seasoning they used on the chicken was delicious. We plan to go back at least one more time before we leave the Chicago area.

Jerky Jerk Chicken

Hands down best chicken I've ever had in Chicago. Maintains a smokey jerk flavor with a melt in your mouth tenderness. Jerk sauce is hot, yet tasteful and filled with flavor. I don't think I'll be able to eat Mac and cheese from anywhere else for the rest of my life. This gem is a absolute must for anyone living Chicago. The jerk chicken and 2 side platter will warm your heart like the island sun.

The oxtail is the best I've ever had. The meat literally slides off the bone and is so well seasoned. It makes me salivate just thinking about it. It's a little pricier than the other items but one I would highly recommend. You will not regret it. The jerk sauce here is also amazing. It has a great balance of sweetness of spice to it that makes you wanting more.

Steamed Cabbage (C)

I've never had steamed cabbage and was told to try it for a side with our catering order. Was very happy with it. Wished it had a little more seasoning but was still very good.We will definitely be ordering from Jerky Jerk for future catering orders as well for work lunch since we are right in the area. Glad we gave it a shot. Big menu and can't wait to try out other dishes
