    No, but interested in trying it out. Are they open for lunch?

      I tried to call them around lunch and dinner time yesterday but there was no answer and no message machine...not a great sign!

        Hmmm...I was looking forward to hearing more about the place. Let us know if you hear they've closed already.

      I will!

      But please give One Love Jamaican in Hendersonville a try, everybody. I think you'll be pleased with the food, if not the location.

        Is Gypsy Cab Company on Main Street in Hendersonville still serving up interesting and tasty dishes? We remember it's sister store in St Augustine, Florida......

          I personally don't think it's as good as the one in St. Augustine, but yes, it is.

            The worst single dish I can every remember being served was at Gypsy Cab. The previous meals I had there was in the mediocre/inoffensive category. I wouldn't waste my time. but, yes, it's still there.

              Just ate there Saturday night. We found nothing to complain about and, to the contrary, were impressed with everything we ordered...
