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!

The oxtail lunch was delicious. I wanted to get deep down into the bones, but eating at the office is not quite the appropriate place; however, I couln't avoid sucking de juice out! The plantain sweetened up everything, which made it really, really nice. Wayne and his assistant is doing a great job, customer service wise, and I pray them continued success. It's really nice to see that we are represented on the truck -- go St. Kitts & Nevis! Will definitely pass the word on to colleagues and others. See you again tomorrow!

Five jerk chicken wings, rice and cabbage. Chicken was great, very flavorful and moist. $2 for a can of soda?!? Inconsistent portions when watching other's ordering the same meal.

I guess I'm the first who was charged $12 for the a meal (w/2 sides) and soda.

Everyone else around there charges ONE DOLLAR for a can of soda, and some other vendors provide more for the money. $10 for 5 wings is a rip off especially when rice and cabbage is so cheap.

There are better trucks with consistent service AND PRICING. Would have been 1 star had the chicken been sub par.

Everything was totally delicious--succulent, and like someone said before, the meaat was falling off the bone--which I absolutely love. I gave them four stars only b/c I wanted more Oxtails and had gone without the rice. As far as the taste of the food, they actually get 5 stars. So next time I come for Oxtails: More Please :)!!! So darn GOOD. The cabbage was seasoned to perfect--but not enough (next time, more please too!)and the Plantains were really wonderful as well--yummy. I figured that since I was going w/o the rice I'd get more cabbage (which was what I wanted anyway), they did not have salad this day. Instead, I got a humongous piece of Potato bread (just what I needed in place of the rice--Not!) which was pretty good. Staying away from the potato bread next time! I know exactly what I want next time since this was my first visit to this truck. Kudos! for the most part 🙂

Not a go to truck for sure. They trick you by not putting up prices. I decided to give it a shot and was I disappointed, not to mention so was my stomach. Very bland caribbean food. There was no spice in the rice and peas. I will not be returning, there are much better trucks out there. If you decide to go don't be surprised by the sticker shock price $10 really?

One star because of the plantains; they were delicious. That said, there were more bones in my chicken roti than pieces of chicken. To package it like a burrito in a somewhat bland wrap kind of hides that fact from people. Even while dissecting the roti with a knife and fork and removing large bones from the mix, I still found myself crunching into smaller bone fragments in my roti hidden amongst the existing vegetables and chicken bits. Might want to elaborate that this dish is "bone in" on their menu.

The "peas and rice" should be renamed to "rice with one bean in it." Additionally, the bean did little to mask the fact that the rice was, like the roti wrap, quite bland. The portions on both the sides were woefully inadequate. Not worth the $10 I paid for it. Will not be back.

The customer service was good, however the taste of the oxtails were not. I read the reviews on here and decided to try it anyway as the oxtail reviews were left months ago and said that the oxtails weren’t tasty, I wanted to support anyway and try it but today April 16th the reviews were the same for me. The oxtails were bland, there was no taste unless I added the plantains to each bite. The portions size is good, plantains & rice were good too, but the lack of taste in the oxtails was a disappointment. Unfortunately, I don’t think I will make a 3rd trip to this truck.

The wings were amazing!!! This was my first time getting the rice and peas. A couple spoons of rice tasted as if the rice wasn't cooked all the way or it had been sitting for a while. Maybe I'll try the cabbage next time. I was a bit disappointed to have only gotten three pieces of plantains, but they were still amazing. I would have to say those were the best plantains I've ever had.

I don't want to forget about the coco bread....mmm...mmm...mmm. I thought I was going to get a piece of coco bread that was about the size of 2 small dinner rolls, but I could have cut this piece of bread into four.

Can't wait to see them @ Farragut Square again!!!
