Pig Out at the Pork Pit

When you’re driving down Glouchester Avenue in Montego Bay, Jamaica, and you see a yellow shack that looks like a dive, roll down your window – when you get a whiff of the jerk BBQ, don’t be surprised if your car turns into the parking lot all by itself. It’s that good.

While the exterior of the Pork Pit may look dumpy and run down (kinda like a pit), rest assured that it only means that they have been too busy cooking up the finest Jerk chicken on the planet to worry about giving their building a facelift. Inside, you’ll encounter some of the juiciest, most delectable Jerk BBQ you’ll ever taste. They’ve got it all.  Jerk chicken and Jerk pork. Jerk sausage and Jerk shrimp. There’s also soup, corn, sweet potatoes, salad and more.

Pair up your grub with an ice cold beer and you’ll be in hog heaven. Jamaican hog heaven. They also serve wine, rum, Ting and other soft drinks. Best news is that it’s affordable, so you’ll probably hit this fine eatery more than once during your stay here in paradise. The backyard is a sweet bonus: it’s full of tables that are all covered by a 300-year-old cotton tree. It’s near the Hip Strip so when you’re shopping and get hungry, stop by the Pork Pit. And get ready to pig out.
