Jamaica House - CLOSED
Houston, TX 77057
Houston Press's Description
Inexpensive lunch specials at Jamaica House near the Galleria are a steal, with a huge quarter of jerk chicken barely fitting on a plate that's also piled high with rice and beans, cabbage and plantains. Red Stripe-braised ribs are similarly attractive, especially when washed down with a Red Stripe on weekend evenings as jazz and reggae musicians play on the small stage. Not drinking? An icy mango drink is equally recommended, cool and sweet and reminiscent of the islands.
Tips from foursquare
Tried the pepper pork, holy cow its got a kick!
Red stripe ribs!
The wings are TDF, the jerk chicken is great. Recommend the Red-Stripe BBQ ribs with the highest regard.
Oxtails on point...they usually run out by the end of the night
Cool it meson. It's a little bit on island time with the service but that's what you get with legit and tasty island food. Best roti I've had in the states.
