Miami New Times' Description
This is truly the hole-in-the-wall that has it all. Almost indistinguishable from the other storefronts along this part of North Miami Avenue, Clive's makes its mark at the cozy counter set up with great Jamaican favorites like curry goat, oxtail, and cowfoot. With ample food packed on a $5.50 special this is a can't-miss deal every afternoon. The chicken is cooked to diner perfection and the curry is a smooth blend that avoids the fire-alarm spices of other native cuisines. The mood is laid-back, with a pleasant Mrs. P taking good care of the customers and a small radio pumping out reggae sounds. You just may catch Clive's fan Lenny Kravitz taking in the scene. Clive's is great for take-out but just as nice for a midafternoon stop to take it easy.
Tips from foursquare
MIAMI (Eat) Make sure you get the potato salad, its perfection
Named best Jamaican Restaurant by Miami New Times 3 years in a row. Family owned, economical, warm, and friendly. You'd think you was @ yard!
Tastes like someone has been in the kitchen all day stewing the beef and chicken to the point where it shreds in a great way!
Try the oxtail great food and also grilled jerk chicken....
The brown stewed chicken is bangin!!
