About Jerkin Chicken

Jerkin Chicken is bringing a truly authentic taste from Jamaica all the way to Jersey City, a place that could use some jerking around. In the best way, of course. That's because this family outfit has been providing their fabulous jerk chicken to the metro area for over 20 years, staying true to that island flavor with imported seasonings and spices to tantalize your tastebuds.

At Jerkin Chicken, get ready to have your tastes jerked and your hunger fully satisfied in their full bodied menu built to do just that. Get a half or full jerkin chicken on a plate with homemade sides of the rice and peas, mac & cheese and even roti bread, or try out one of their other Jamaican specialties. They've got a whole lot of savory goodness on board, a food truck that's making curry goat, oxtail and even curry salmon all the more available on the streets. If you're looking for good eats, you'll find 'em here. So why wait? Find Jerkin Chicken to get your jerk on, or invite 'em to jerk up your next event. Trust us. It's well worth it.
