I am what some would call a "foodie", but I rarely write food reviews. However, I have eaten at a LOT of restaurants but am sitting down to write a review of One Love. I am new to the Waynesville area and have been actively seeking out what are going to be my "go to" establishments. I regularly read tripadvisor reviews and I noticed a level of passion in many of the reviews of this restaurant...something I look for. The passion is well founded. Regardless of your past experience or preconceptions of Jamaican food, give this restaurant a chance. It is not fancy, but it is clean. Don't be put off if there are few folks in the parking lot or inside. Have Patrick the owner make a recommendation for you or do what we did and split a Jamaican Platter and have the opportunity to sample several great meat dishes. I recommend the collards and rice as side dishes. Try a Ting grapefruit soda to accompany the depth of flavor and spice in the dishes. There is a sophisticated subtlety in the flavor here that people with a love of food will appreciate. Patrick is warm, engaging, and clearly passionate about his food. He brings to Waynesville 22 years of restaurant experience from Brooklyn, NY. His food won me over. This will be a regular stop for me....I loved everything on my platter and can't wait to try more dishes.
