A few weeks ago, I participated in the NIOSC Amazing Race with my husband, Mark, and our friends, John and Alisha. One of the destinations was 2 Jerks, a Caribbean restaurant that took me back to my days spent in Priory, Jamaica with the old Rend Lake College crew!
We were skillful (or lucky, you decide) enough to win two dinner certificates to … you guessed it, 2 Jerks! Mark and I, eagerly, went back the following weekend with a friend. We weren’t disappointed! The restaurant is cozy with an island feel and the owners make you feel welcomed from the time you walk in until you leave.
I ordered jerk chicken and Mark ordered the combo meal, which was jerk chicken and chicken curry with rice and beans. Incredibly flavorful and delicious! He also makes his own spiced rum. Seriously, imagine this place on a nice day… sitting on the patio, enjoying a cocktail, and having some spicy jerk chicken.
All this restaurant needs is Jamaican Festival and it would be complete, but don’t be confused … I have no complaints! I will be back and I will continue to brag for them. It’s good food, people!
