I am the founder of the original famous Jerk Chicken and Jerk Steak Tacos. My Great Grand Father from Kingston Jamaica created my original Jerk recipe and it have been past down through my family for many generation.
My humble beginning started out of the trunk of my car on 63rd street beach with one employee in the summer of 2013. That same summer I moved to a more permanent space outside under a tent on Adams and Pulaski with 12 employees. Once the weather changed I moved underground to an indoor space in my beauty shop on Wilcox and Pulaski and continued to service my customers Jerk fix until it became overwhelming with too many customer to continue serving their Jerk fix in side my salon. So I rented from a slumlord an existing hole in the wall storefront restaurant on Cicero and Ohio and continued to service my customer’s Jerk cravings. Because of the bad conditions of the restaurant’s cooking ventilation system, I could not cook in the restaurant so I rented a house a block away to cook the meats in the back yard and literally walked the cooked jerked meats to the restaurant.
While serving my customers in the Cicero location I located a property for sale on Jackson and Pulaski, The old Davis Custom Tops and Auto Mechanical Shop. I purchased it in 2014 and did a complete restaurant build out installing the latest state of the arts restaurant equipment. We grill all our meats with only charcoal and wood, no gas. My mission was to bring the outdoors to the indoor. I also purchased an Italian Ice machine to create a new cool flavor to the Jerk menu. I opened the door to the public April 17,2015 and now I have over 30 employees and I supply over one thousand customers their JERK FIX daily.
To all my supporters, critics, Facebook and Instagram family, MUCH GRAITUDE AND RESPECT FOR ALL YOU ALL CONTINUAL SUPPORT. I AM LOOK FORWARD TO CONTINUE PROVIDING YOU WITH YOUR JERK FIX AND GIVING YOU THAT ORGAZMIC EXPERIENCE ALL IN YOUR MOUTH FROM MY JERK MENU!!
