  • positive review  I can not express how pleased I am with the service from Jerk N Jive. When my girlfriend found out her sandwich was a little too spicy for her, the cashier not only gave her another dish for free(which was absolutely delicious) but let us keep the other sandwich as well. They were very kind and the food is fantastic!

    4 star review  I want to give 4.5 but not an option. The food is delicious. Jerk chicken is flavored nicely and they serve sweet and spicy seasoning on the side. I love HOT, so the extra was appreciated and like that YOU decide heat level. Mac n cheese and cabbage both delicious.

  • positive review  Every time I visit my Mom in Frederick I stop by here. Their curry chicken is the best I’ve ever had. They aren’t greedy with their rice and peas like most Caribbean restaurants and they go out of their way to accommodate you. Prices are about the same as everywhere else. I am so sad that my Mom is moving away from Frederick and this will be the last time I’m about to enjoy their amazing food. I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND.. This place is absolutely amazing.

    positive review  Ok, first thing I want to say is I'm disappointed because I waited to get home to eat. I wish I would've eaten there and then ordered more food for when I got home. It. Was. Amazing! I had the curry goat, callaloo, macaroni, and the jerk wings. Their signature sauces were the best tasting sauces I have ever had at a Caribbean restaurant. I am currently looking for a part time job because I plan on spending a lot more money on the delicious food. I mean, I have to try everything else right...? I highly recommend this restaurant to any and everybody! Thank you once again!
