Jerk Hut

Hands down, mon. The Jerk Hut nails all that curry and zesty jerk sauce and everything else. Whenever someone at the office suggests the downtown Jerk Hut for lunch, you invariably hear an orgasmic chorus of “Mmmmm, Jerrrrk Huuuut.” The curry chicken never fails; the jerk chicken falls off the bone; the curry goat and oxtail stew make you forget you’re eating goat and ox. The women servers are friendly (and easy on the eyes). The downtown location has a happy hour/buffet/party on Friday nights where you can stuff yourself, swill Red Stripes and groove to a reggae band. Don’t dally. Time to get your jerk on. 207 E. Twiggs St., Tampa, 813-223-4473; 1406 E. Fowler Ave., Tampa, 813-632-9551.
