Lickle Jamaica Restaurant

Meet us where the jerk chicken is tender and zesty


The chefs at Lickle Jamaica Restaurant call this delicious, authentic Jamaican cuisine “real yard food with a zest.”


The jerk chicken is the fan favorite at Lickle Jamaica, where you can dine on tender Jerk Wings, Whole Dark Jerk (four legs and four thighs), or a Half White Jerk (two breasts and two wings) all in a zesty sauce. Mix it up with a Rib Tip and Jerk or a Shrimp and Jerk combination plate. Or try the Jerk Alfredo!


The Catfish and Shrimp combination is also a favorite here. As is the Chicken and Shrimp Taco Dinner.


No matter what you order, you can’t go wrong at Lickle Jamaica! Especially when you pair it all with a Cream Soda or Ginger Beer.
