Very solid jerk flavor (a little wetter then I like) but quality spice (backed up by the real Ginger Beer). The plantains were not mushy (a big bonus)

Very solid jerk flavor (a little wetter then I like) but quality spice (backed up by the real Ginger Beer). The plantains were not mushy (a big bonus) and the rice and beans rounded out the plate nice. The woman taking orders was super nice too!

I was kind of disappointed... I have been waiting to find a Caribbean food truck and walked somewhat far to make sure I tried this one. I will say they had an excellent greeter! and the cabbage was very good! I ordered oxtail, that is my fav. Caribbean dish. It lacked a flavor, and when I say flavor I mean that unique Island taste. It tasted like pot roast, and I would never pay 12$ for pot roast. I had to add salt and hot sauce to give it some sort of taste. To me when you need salt that means something is definitely underseasoned. I am just sadly disappointed :(


The ox tail was absolutely delicious. Super tender and fall-off-the-bone good, in an awesome gravy which made the rice & beans taste even better. Plan

The ox tail was absolutely delicious. Super tender and fall-off-the-bone good, in an awesome gravy which made the rice & beans taste even better. Plantains were delicious. Perfect hearty meal for a cold day. Cabbage was good; didn't particularly stand out like the other two, but perfectly acceptable.

Worst experience I've had on food trucks. Curry was tasteless/flavorless, cabbage was seasoned and rice and peas were bland. Not wat I was expecting for a $10 meal. I love Caribbean food so have had alot of food to compare to. Will only get beverages.


The combo is usually $10 for an entree and two sides, but I added an extra entree and it was only $3 more! The portions are HUGE! The service is unm

The combo is usually $10 for an entree and two sides, but I added an extra entree and it was only $3 more! The portions are HUGE! The service is unmatched and the food...well, the food is the best of every other food truck out there! I look forward to when the truck comes to my area. When I need more, I visit their store front in Landover, MD. Best food in the DC Area!
