2. Dat Fire Jerk Chicken

Right outside Mercedes Benz Stadium in a small, colorful shack is a helluva meal. Despite the restaurant name, their jerk chicken usually has a bit less spice than other spots, so if you’re looking for more kick, try Jamrock or Chef Rob’s. Their homemade jerk sauce is so good you’ll want to drizzle straight into your mouth. Pair it with some perfectly sweet plantains.

3. Irie Mon Cafe

You gotta love a hidden gem, and Irie Mon Cafe is just that. The interiors are nothing fancy, but you’ll be cheered by the mural colorful, Jamaican flag colored mural on the walls. Aside from your usual Jamaican fare, they also have some halal offerings as well as an all-day breakfast menu with typical Jamaican items like ackee & saltfish.

4. Negril Village Atlanta

This Midtown spot on North Avenue brings together the magic of “jerk, rum, reggae & more.”  The restaurant was built in a historic firehouse. The resulting ambiance is more classy and upscale than the other restaurants listed, with marble tables and chandeliers throughout, but it’s not a fussy place.

5. Scotch Bonnet Jamaican Eatery

Scotch Bonnet Jamaican “Restaurant,” named after the Scotch Bonnet peppers found in many Jamaican dishes, may be the definition of a diamond in the roof. It’s a food truck/trailer without wheels and absolutely nothing fancy. But as is often the case with these kinda spots, they are serving up some truly fire Jamaican food. You’ll get huge portions of jerk chicken, brown stew, and Jamaican style curried goat. It’s a total food coma in the best way. Find them OTP on Campbellton Rd and on most delivery apps!

6. Jamrock Restaurant

Jamrock never disappoints when we need some amazing jerk chicken, stat. Their jerk has a bit of a hint of extra, dry spice, and we crave it always. It’s the perfect takeout or delivery option when you need something savory. And they’re available on Uber Eats!

7. Royal Caribbean Bakery 

There are quite a few places around Atlanta to get great jerk chicken, but if you’re craving the patties, hard dough bread, and coco bread that can only be found in Jamaican cuisine, this is the spot to visit. Take the trip to Stone Mountain to grab some lunch and pick up a big order of patties to freeze for later.
