I've wanted some Jerk since my arrival in WSNC & searched for such a restaurant. We ventured across town to Uncle Desi's Jamaican Grill yesterday and discovered exactly what I'd been craving. The food; escoveitch red snapper was very well prepared as was the brown...More

I had the chicken curry ($8.50) which was very good, although it was not as spicy as I like. My friend had the Jamaican wrap which was very spicy. I also bought the braised oxtail ($13.50) for take out. Prices were a little expensive although...More

Overall the food is pretty good. Out of everything I've tried I love the Escoveitched fish. It's so spicy and good...but not too spicy where you can't enjoy it. The fish I believe is Tilapia so it's not like an authentic Escoveitch that you would...More

I had read the mixed reviews and the one about the fairly low County restaurant rating (84 of 100) gave me cause for pause, but curiosity and my penchant for exploration and new things got the better of me. I'm glad I decided to try...More

We were referred by my boss to come here. This was the best Jamaican spot ever. Cannot believe how close it is to the coliseum and affordable pricing. The Jerk Fish is recommended with the Mango punch. The food was so good that I budgetted...More

My husband and I tried it out for lunch. I gave it a 3 because I don’t think it deserves a 2. I didn’t really know what to expect coming in so....an average review is suffice. The menu is limited to maybe 10items (if that.)...More

We got a takeout of Jerk chicken and sides. The food was excellent. It is served in takeout containers but there are tables to eat at if preferred. We definitely recommend this place. It is "off the beaten path" so look for it!

I have been to this place a few time the rice & peas and jerk chicken is awesome. I had the curry chicken once and it was very salty. The oxtail is not good either. I would only recommend the jerk chicken. I am from...More

We tried Uncle Desi's not long after coming back from Jamaica. The exterior and location can be a bit off-putting but don't let it deter you. To be honest, the interior is too. This is the only thing that keeps me from giving it a...More
