2007-06-05 22:17:36   Having moved here from Florida, I was dying to locate a good Jamaican restaurant. After quite a few weeks of anticipation, I went LJ's this evening. I got jerk chicken (small size) for $8 to go. I must admit I am a bit disappointed from the whole experience. They were out of beef patties; the fellow wanted $1 extra to pack the dumplings and gravy in a separate small box; the rice and beans was a little too over-cooked (mushy); and the chicken could have used some more spice. However, I finished my box of food as if I hadn't eaten in a week. For my next Jamaican craving I would like to try Natural Vibes or the Haitian restaurant that serves Jamaican. Irie! —GeorgeJegadesh

I had the oxtail which was great, and my friend had the Jerk chicken which i tried and also loved. The rice and beans were excellent, along with the cabbage and plantains. Well worth a visit! —GeorgeBluth

I've GOT to try this place after reading the city newspaper review from the link above. I'm a happy 19th Ward home owner and would love to give my business to my neighbors. Definitely on my To-Do list. Look for review here thereafter. —StephanieTodd

LJ's has the best ox tail and rice and beans. Always ask for extra sauce. So good! If ox tail is not your thing the jerk chicken and pepper steak are also very tasty! —Liren
