Every time we go to Grand Cayman our stop for lunch on the first day is Rankins. The food is traditional and always good. We normally order at the window then eat on the picnic tables out front while the local chickens run around. We...More

Rankin's Jerk Pit has decent jerk chicken and jerk pork. You order at a small window and then hang around on the cement porch until your food is ready. You can eat there as the large front lawn has plenty of places to sit or...More

We went here one night on a whim and we are happy we did! The wrap, seafood chowder and chicken tenders were great (and affordable!) The hamburger kind of had a sweet taste.

Just get the jerk things, don't bother with the other stuff. Jerk chicken is to die for! Prepare to wait a while for food to be done, maybe 20 min or so. Good for takeout, or you can sit at the tables, with chickens for...More
