    This place used to be a little gem on U street that had some of THE BEST Jamaican food around. Unfortunately now it is some wasted space serving lack luster "authentic Jamaican" options with a ridiculous price tag. I used to be a faithful customer or what was Jamaica Joe's. I loved everything about it. Great food, reasonable prices, just the whole shebang. It was awesome. Until one day i was heading there as I did almost every Sunday to find out that they were closed. I was shocked and totally sad. After months and months of driving by with damn near tears in my eyes, I noticed that they re-opened and I literally almost caused an accident cutting across traffic to get here. As soon as I walked inside i noticed the beautiful remodeling and great new atmosphere, and I was beyond pumped. My feelings immediately changed after looking at the ridiculous new menu they had. Where was the jerk chicken, curry chicken, etc. I was shocked how could they have done this? What made me even more mad were the ridiculous prices. $18.00 for some jerk chicken skewers. In all I think the owners need to look back on the old saying "if it aint broke dont try fixing it" because what they've done is make a catastrophe out of something that was beyond great!
