The Jerk Hut is cheap for a reason. Service includes you ordering at a counter, and waiting around for one of the two employees to take the order. It's not that they were being lazy, the phone was ringing off the hook, even on a Monday. Inside, there is a few seats. They were working on a large outdoor patio in the back, which I can only imagine is perfect on summer nights.
Besides reagge playing, there isn't much of an ambiance. We saw three ants crawling on the counter when we were paying. So why go to a place with basic service and little atmosphere?
It's the food. I had the jerk chicken, and it was the most amazingly flavored piece of meat I've had in recent memory. My friends also seemed to enjoy their dishes. The side of plantains I ordered perfectly complimented my meal. Honestly, I would recommend this place for takeout, especially if you can't eat outside. The good tastes good enough to overcome what the restaurant lacks otherwise.
