Does anyone know where the real deal is the best?

    I think I might have eaten somewhere but I can't remember what that might be. I think maybe there was some red on the door, or blue on the wall, but I am not sure.

      Ive eaten from Clippers in Lefrak City, 97-17 57 Ave.
      Theres also one somewhere in Rockaway.

      I remember it being alright, homestyle jamaican cooking, but I havent been in there in a while because there is a place by my office that is just outstanding.

        I heard of this place but didn't get a chance to try it:

        Country Style
        215-09 Jamaica Ave., Queens Village
        F to 179th St., then Q36 bus to 215th St.

        This was labled as homestyle Jamaican cooking.

          I ate at a restaurant near here today which had a very solid oxtail and butterbeans (large for 9) with rice and beans. Green and yellow awning.
