Some travelers actually build time on their way to or from the Provo airport for a stop at this popular, cash-only Jamaican restaurant on Old Airport Road. A talented kitchen here cooks up flavorful (and good-value) island food, from mouthwatering jerk chicken or pork to curried goat, steamed conch, cowfoot and beans, and barbecued ribs. Entrées come with peas and rice or fried rice. You can also sample island breakfasts of chicken souse, seasoned codfish, and boiled fish with sides of johnnycakes, boiled dumplings, and fried plantains. The Upstairs Grill, on an attractive tiled patio, serves a more international menu, including grilled pizzas, burgers, and salads (main courses $16–$23).
