Best in the West

This roadside shack-type establishment makes up in food quality for what it may lack in refinement. Try the chicken or any other of the grilled meats and/or seafood dishes, and order a drink at the stand bar to go along - all at very affordable prices. Open mid-morning until late at night.


Savor the island’s rich cultural history through its food. Lucea itself is scarce for dining venues, but venturing to nearby Negril and Montego Bay will provide a wealth of dining options, with the traditional Jamaican "jerk chicken" (as well as other meats and seafood prepared on grill) available at every corner at street food vendors' stalls and finer, sit-in establishments. Do not skip on the Jamaican patties - a variety of local fast food (coco bread stuffed with various fillings) and make sure to sample the local ackee fruit and saltfish.
