“Jerk chicken nirvana!”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Absolutely, hands down, beyond a doubt, nothing to compare - the best, most mouthwatering, flavorful, yum yummerific jerk chicken you will find. Take a cab if you are staying in PDC (some erroneous address/reviews would have you believe this is near Constituyentes and 30…a translation mishap perhaps…it is NOT…you will need a cab!). If you are staying in PDC go there and get some jerk chicken and sides…eat it there…or take back to your hotel etc (like we did)…grab some beer on the way! You will not be disappointed! Great customer service and exceptionally friendly owners and staff too. Closed on a Monday and also close daily at 6pm so plan accordingly. Oh…and they deliver too if you call plenty time before closing or during regular hours. Jerk Chicken Nirvana in PDC…TOTAL BLISS :)

“Not to be missed!”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

It took us a few tries to find Ferron's but totally worth the effort. When we used the Trip Advisor app and then clicked directions, the placement on the Map was incorrect and we could not find it. When back at our rental house, we used Google Maps and it came up correctly, so if you have trouble finding it, try Google Maps at your hotel or condo through Wifi.
Ferron's Jerk Chicken is incredible. The owners and staff were so inviting and truly care that you have a fantastic meal. The chicken is to die for, bit of a kick with a sweetness, tender and juicy. You won't soon forget this chicken.
There were 5 of us, we ordered the whole chicken meal and another half chicken meal and there was not a thing left! The price was great and service with a big smile.
Several of us who don't care for coleslaw, loved Ferron's coleslaw. The corn roasted on the grill was delicious. This was by far the best meal we had in our 9 days in Mexico. We will be going back next time we are in Playa. Do not miss a chance to go, you'll love it!

“Great Chicken...Great Price”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

The jerk chicken is excellent. For 210 MXN or about $15, a family of four can get a whole chicken, 4 half corn on the cobbs, 4 rolls, coleslaw and a 2 liter of Pepsi. That is a deal. Ferron's location is well outside the tourist zone but is safe to walk or take a cab. Cab ride is about $7. Service was great. Owner was fun to talk to and is eager for more tourists to find his place. It was clear that locals like this place. They appear to have a delivery service. The food here is awesome.

“Delicious ”

My pregnant wife and I walked from pdc to Ferron's on a hot Sunday afternoon. It was totally worth it. We enjoyed our meal so much that two days later we had them deliver to our all inclusive resort.
