Jerk Hill

A Jamaican storefront that specializes in goat curry.

From April 2006 Dirt Cheap Eats

Goat Curry at Jerk Hill. On weekends, the lines never seem to thin at this Jamaican storefront along East-West Highway. With good reason: Seldom do you come across a goat curry as good as this one ($6.83 small, $10.24 large), its brown depths teeming with shreds of stewed baby goat that have all the peppery bite you could hope for. This is hearty, home-style cooking. Eat it with the same lusty brio as the customers in the small dining room adjoining the kitchen–tear off a hunk of the excellent coco bread and swab it through the curry so you don't leave any behind.
