Occupying the welcoming, if ramshackle, house that previously held College Perks, the Jerk Pit serves Jamaican food in quantities that will stagger you with heat-flavor balances that will win your heart and taste-buds. The chicken combo,with jerk chicken, chicken curry, and vegetables with rice and beans, proved an excellent introduction to an unpretentious and homey menu that offers variety and substance. The home-made ginger beer really knocked my socks off, and the jerk shrimp juxtaposed texture and spice for perfect mouthfuls of Caribbean flavor.
Enjoying this at a picnic bench in the shady yard lent a bit more verisimilitude, and made me want to come back and try everything on the menu. I saw a bandstand, so hopefully they offer live music, as well.
