Jo Jo’s Jerk Pit and More

Started as a farmers' market near Kingston’s historic Devon House and embassy area, Jo Jo’s Jerk Pit & More eventually grew into a jerk establishment large enough to compete in U.S. barbecue cook-offs. Big enough certainly that its rotating menu also offers jerk conch and lamb, and decidedly non-Caribbean fare like pasta Alfredo, Philly cheesesteaks, and, should you really crave it, poutine. Wooden barrels turned into tables and chairs and picnic tables fill the tree-shaded patio, while the long bar is covered. Along with karaoke Thursdays, and live music Saturdays, rum and liquor companies sponsor one-off parties that bring out Kingston’s young and beautiful, like a recent one that's theme was "A.B.C.—Anything But Clothes." Better come sexy to this jerk joint.
