Appetite for…Jamaica

Jamaican Jerk Chicken is what you crave, join us for the most succulent Jerk Chicken in the South Bay.

http://youtu.be/JnchAjdTZGo



Jerk is one of the most popular Jamaican dishes, dating back to the island’s earliest days. Jerk marinade consist of a fiery mixture of spices, including Scotch bonnet Pepper, pimento or allspice, nutmeg and thyme. 

The practice of cooking the meat over the flame dates back to the discovery of Jamaica.


Excellent yelp reviews.   Menu

There's street metered parking in front or a paid parking lot in the back. Motorcycle parking is across the street half a block down.

When I am in Downtown San Jose, Back A Yard is one of my top five places to dine. Caribbean Jerk Chicken and Red Stripe Beer, hits the spot every time.

    This would be my first time with this group. I responded YES to the RSVP but the truth is, that's tentative. But I will certainly try.
