My Jamaican client brought me to this place; they had the best oxtails I had ever tasted. The food and atmosphere is authentic. I highly recommend this place.

Really good food, but the only way you know if they are open is if you call ahead to make sure. Went twice within the times they have listed on Google and they were closed.

I promise u there is better Caribbean food, there's just not many options. I ordered 2 sides that's all they gave me a whole dinner...the curry was watery, barely any gravy or flavor clearly not cooked from.the heart. Customer service is non existent...I'd travel to dc or to the 1 other Caribbean place in fairfax & they never open on-time. I will not be coming back, they more concerned with saying peas and rice than rice and peas than getting an order right. I'll never go back & to be there this long & still look under construction.

Hit or miss you never know what they are out of until you get there , if They are open or not , voicemail always full.They got me for a $6.00 side order of rice. But hey when you the only show in town you can do as you please open and close when you want regardless of what your hours say online. You cannot even make an order over the phone ??‍♂️??‍♂️ Unfortunately most West Indian restaurants have no good customer service and this is one of them. Food is good though but you risk them being open and having what you want ??‍♂️??‍♂️

I ordered the curry goat and it was very tasty and a lot of food. Not the easiest place to find.

Not open during advertised business hours on Saturday afternoon. I hope to come back some day and turn this review around as Google Maps recommended it. Best of luck.

Long time goer (7+ years). Have tried most of the menu but always came back for the j*** chicken. However, the quality of the j*** chicken isn’t as good as it used to be anymore. Not properly seasoned and excess in salt. Funny enough, the quality of the food used to taste amazing when the hours were very inconsistent but now with consistent hours and good service, it seems like the quality of the food has gone quite poor. I’m writing this while I’m eating my last j*** chicken I’ll be having from this place. Used to be the go to spot for jerk/ox tail food but I gave this place too many chances.

Hole-in-the-wall takeout joint with Caribbean charm, friendly cashier/chef. Been coming here for about ten years and I've never once been disappointed, even though management has changed and they are currently undergoing renovations. Walk-in orders for specialty items may take up to 30 minutes to make, but it's also a very walkable area of town where you can easily kill some time. Simpler orders usually take five minutes at most, and there are chairs inside to wait on. About $20 fed my ravenous wife and I handily for lunch, and finding a table or bench to eat at was a fun adventure on its own.If you're new to the cuisine, you can't miss with the j*** chicken or a beef patty (pictured below). Neither are too spicy or expensive. Most dishes come with rice and beans on the side. The oxtail and curry goat, as well as the stewed options, are equally tasty, but be aware most dishes are served bone-in. I recommend you try everything at least once, and if they ask if you want your side dish to come with cabbage, say yes. It's good and you'll thank yourself if you paired it with something spicy. The plantains are good too, but sometimes they won't be available due to supply issues.They are also currently pursuing their beer and liquor license, so in a few months you may even be able to order a nice cold Red Stripe with your meal, but again, this is a takeout spot, so don't expect to eat or drink on the premises.Parking: Parking across the street is free and plentiful in the outdoor lot. Parking structure adjacent to this lot offers additional, paid parking.Wheelchair accessibility: No wheelchair accessibility. Staircase leading down is steep. Probably just yell your order down or call ahead. Don't let a wheelchair stop you from trying this food.

Guessing this place isn’t open on Saturdays per the hours that’s on the VM. I called and called and called and no one answered + drove over because i just assumed they were busy. I tried to peek in the side door but there was no activity.

If you want authentic Caribbean food this is the place to go. Whenever I’m in the area I have to stop by Caribbean corner. The food hands down is the best in Virginia and I’ve been to many Caribbean restaurants and they offer the best portion sizes for what you pay for. The food is delicious, my favorite is the Oxtails. Love, love, love, this place. Highly recommend Caribbean Corner.
