Dallas Observer's Description

The place is nothing fancy, with worn vinyl chairs and Jamaican soccer flags and Bob Marley posters lining the walls, but the service is warm and friendly, as if they're genuinely happy to feed you. The menu has odd fusion stuff like jerk chicken nachos and Rasta Pasta (I had flashbacks to the Workaholics episode in which the guys are headed to Jamaica's Hedonism resort and its Pastafari restaurant) alongside island classics like curried goat, meat patties and escoveitch (think ceviche, Jamaican-style). There's a lunch buffet offered Wednesday through Friday, but I arrived half an hour before lunch ended and wasn't sure how long the food had been sitting in the steam tables, so I ordered off the menu -- the lunch portion of jerk chicken with rice for $8.92.
