This is my favorite jerk spot both the jerk chicken & the ox tail are both excellent. 2nd place is a tie between Albert's and Pat's. Service at the Real Jerk can be real slow, especially if you're dining in.

Trust me when I say that the Jerk pork with gravy is the best ever.
You will "NOT" beat the jerk pork. Extremely extremely tasty.

I cannot find Jerk better in Toronto than Mr. Jerk. If anyone has tasted better then please post it. Most other places that call it jerk isn't jerk. And I'm tired of trying lousy jerk when I could have gone to Mr. Jerk for the real deal.

Hi guyz
I went there yesterday with two friends..we were looking for a good spot to have some good jerk chickens and it was a disaster !!!!! best jerk chicken in whole Toronto ? are you kidding ? the rice wasn't that fresh (i should had asked the lady to warm up the food but i hate to do that because they should know food must be hot enough !!

I used to live around the Peanut Plaza and went to Mr. Jerk on a regular basis. My favorite was the jerk pork with rice. Chicken roti, curry goat with rice, all good choices. They also had a deep fried dumpling that was filling and delicious. Best food of that type and I haven't found anything to match.

Where do I need to go to get the recipe for jerk chicken with mac and cheese on top

I concur with DSTORONTO.

I had really bad food poisoning from the Chicken Roti I ordered from this place a couple of weeks ago...
Up all night and several trips to the toilet...

Hygiene and food storage seems to be an issue...

It's a roll of the dice for me, but if you have a cast iron stomach, you should be okay.
