I've been here before for the shows but haven't ever really gotten to sink my fangs into the food until one day, I had a taste for it. Instead of driving to other familiar spots way across town, I decided to pay this establishment a visit. It's located in a nice, convenient part of town with lots of parking and is always willing to serve.Upon entry, we're greeted by authentic reggae music, authentic smiles, and authentic Jamaican food smells. This place has every popular Jamaican dish you could think of and also, wings, burgers, and salads, if you're not too familiar. You still get the taste. There is so much culture inside and it is spacious and clean!I ordered the Jerk Chicken plate, I know, cliche, but so good! The young man working that day was so nice as to make sure my meal only consisted of white meat as I typically don't eat dark meat or anything on the bone. I was so appreciative when I opened my to go plate. There was nothing but tender, juicy pieces of white meat adorned with spicy Jerk seasonings. The rice and peas was cooked right and the cabbage was a nice touch as well. I really enjoyed the Jamaican Lemonade too. It's just like the regular recipe but with a tangy punch!I'm here to attest that the prices are reasonable, the food is great, and the vibe is IRIE at Jamaican Gates. More...

Jamaica Gates could not be better! My sister and I stopped by after flying in from Philly last Thursday evening for a wedding and were blown away by the food and service. I have been to Jamaica many many times and the curry chicken and rice and peas were on point. Big up to Glen for the gracious welcome. Respect. We told everyone at the wedding about this hidden gem!

Food was seasoned really well, although nothing we ordered came out piping hot. The place was really clean however service was kinda slow even though the place was nearly empty. All in all, it's great place to stop for a Jamaican meal, the food was actually really good but I just expect more when I'm spending $50 for 3 people to eat. More...

Food was pretty good. I actually got the curry chicken and the only reason I'm probably not giving them a 10 is just that I wanted the chicken to have more spice to it

I recently had a Goat Roti from the Jamaica Gates and while it was delicious, I was disappointed that they didn't take the fat and skin off the meat. It would have been perfect if the meat was lean without the slimy feel of fat with each bite. I hope the chef gets this message and take action. I will let them know the next time I visit to please take the fat off the meat? It will lead to a better eating experience. More...

We felt a little out of place walking in, but they were EXTREMELY nice. Food was amazing. I had the Rasta pasta with shrimp. Shrimp were verrrry spicey, bit that was to be expected from Jamaican. Lime juice drink was great too. It's hard for my kids to agree on anything, but they loved this place and want to go back tomorrow. More...

So, I've been here a few times. The restaurant always has a healthy number of people at it, but as good as it is they should have people out the door. The food is great. Service is good. And, it isn't a chain restaurant, which in Arlington is 1 in a million. More...

Born and raised in the Caribbean, I never thought I could find a good restaurant up here with food that taste like home! You all have met better yet exceeded that expectation with your goat soup, what I grow up knowing as "Goat Water." Thank you!!!!! I just wish it was a bigger serving. Was really disappointed when I only got one piece of goat, one dumpling and a bunch of carrots. More...

13 August 2019

Really good Jamaican food can be found here! I had the oxtails, rice and peas, and cabbage. She had the jerk chicken with the same sides. The food was really good and well seasoned. I was hoping for bigger portions but maybe that's because it was so good. The service was very good. The waiter suggested some really good drinks as well. My only complaint is that the day we went the AC wasn't working and it was already 95+ degrees outside. They had fans blowing so it was manageable. I'll definitely be returning. More...

P
11 August 2019

This was my first time here, and the food was AMAZING! The server was very laid back and sweet and the chef was spectacular! Had the 3meat platter with oxtail, curry goat, and rude-boy jerk chicken. The entire plate was amazing but the goat stole the show! My friend is vegetarian and the chef made a special veggie platter just for her. That was above and beyond, and I will most certainly be back when I come back I to town to visit again!!! More...

6 August 2019

The food is delicious.  It's always crowded though and its hard to get your food, even if you are just ordering take out.  I have never eaten inside because it's just too loud in the restaurant.  I can't hear myself think, let alone hear anyone else at the table.  I have only tried the jerk chicken (which is very good) but sometimes my chicken isn't done all the way on the inside.  If they could figure out a way to get the take out orders filled and out of the door better, I could give them five stars because the food is excellent.  Standing at the bar in the kitchen doorway, screaming over the music at someone behind the bar doesn't work. Maybe next visit will be better... More...

I cannot wait to come back here. Sad I live so far away. The jerk chicken was extremely spicy so if you can't handle spicy do not get that. Took me a couple today's to eat that. The oxtails and goat were amazing. And the mango drink. Omg so good. Can't wait to eat here again. More...

My co-workers and I stopped on our way back to the hotel for a "stay in" dinner. We ordered our meals to go and I decided to try the ox tails with rice and peas, and cabbage. The oxtails were so tender, flavorful, and well seasoned and not greasy at all! The cabbage was delicious! I enjoyed every bit of my meal!! Before I left the restaurant, I remembered to check in on Yelp, and was pleasantly surprised to see I could get a free dessert with my meal! I was so excited! I was set to order the pineapple upside down cake, and found out they only had chocolate rum cake left for the day! Talk about blown! I settled for what they had available and I really wasn't impressed by the rum cake but that could have just been my disappointment showing. Over all a very nice stop in Texas! More...

Jamaica Gates never failsFirst let me begin by stating that this is one of my favorite restaurants in Arlington. I always feel the love. On this occasion, I ordered the oxtails, peas and rice and salad. It was delicious. My friend had goat and jerk chicken. I will attest that the goat is so delicious and tender that I wanted to steal his food. Really I did (but I didn't of course). The drinks are also pretty great. What I like about this place is that the cook greets his guests just every time I've been here. This place is definitely worth visiting. Just know the food is addictive. More...

Before I start this review the food was pretty darn good. The wait time and customer service was horrible. I walked in and waited like 20-25 mins to be seated and when I was sitter I guess they forgot about me cause I didn't see a waiter or waitress for about 30-35 mins. Once my order was taken it didn't take long to get food. If they get that wait time down this place would be booming. I will definitely be going back once I have a few hours to burn in the process More...

Came in for Father' Day dinner, and just wanted to update. This time I decided on the Kingston Trio, which you get to make three meat choices, a side of peas and rice( a must-have for Caribbean food) and cabbage. I chose the stewed chicken, oxtails, and curry goat. Curry goat is something I've ever eaten while out; just can eat everybody's curry goat. HOWEVER, after eating it at JG, I'll be back for more. The sauce was very rich and full of flavor. The other meat choices were good, but when you get a good pot of curry goat, life is really good! The presentation of the plate was good, as each meat was presented in a cup. The place was pretty clean, save for the bathroom; needed some freshening up. Otherwise, a great experience again!

Yesterday was the first time I went here.I moved from Bronx, NY ever since I moved I been craving and wanting ox tails but it's difficult finding a place where they serve it. I was mindblown on how good and delicious the ox tails are. Plus I enjoy the environment and interaction of the place makes you feel welcoming and comfortable. I'll definitely recommend and go back here again. More...

People tend to give negative reviews, but I like to do reviews when I am very impressed. I was very impressed! The food, amazing! Service, amazing! Atmosphere, amazing! I hear that it is a night spot, we went during the day, during the restaurant hours. Very impressed. As a professional, I would bring my staff to treat them and not feel like our integrity would be compromised! I had the "Kingston trio", amazing!!!! More...

Best Jamaican food I had in Texas and I'm used to Jamaican food in New York. Gave nice size portions too!! I wish it was closer to where I live I would be a regular! ! Must try the Chocolate Rum runner cake it was amazing!!!! Service did take a bit long, we got ours to go but definitely worth the wait!! More...

29 May 2019

I give it a four star! Food was great took a bit but if you want fresh expect the wait.  It was a Friday all you can eat fish for $25, we specifically told our server we will be ordering from menu not the all you can eat. My husband ordered his fish, I ordered goat stew (awesome). Towards the end of our dinner we were told by the manager we had to pay $25 for the fish my husband just ate, menu much less. We didn't want all you can eat. Our server was young and scared to tell us, her service was great.  I would advise them to make it clear for all you can eat is for any fish you order. More...

Good food. I will have to go during the weekend. The gentleman who told me to come in and have a seat, I went during lunch, was warm an inviting. The lady who took my to go order not so much. It was obvious she 'likes' the regulars. She barely smiled at me, yet the man who came in after me, all smiles, eye contact, he got great customer service. Not I... I got the vibe of the 'insecure female ' as if I were a threat to her.... I might bewrong, yet she makes me not want to go there again. More...

I'd been looking forward to trying this place for awhile and finally got to try it. I had the jerk chicken and rice, a bit on the spicy side but still delicious. The service was great and for a fair price you get alot of food! Definitely coming back to try something different and the buffet as well. Look out for the updated review! Lol More...

Great food.  A good time.  In town for a business conference and chose here to partake in my usual Caribbean cuisine.  This place lived up to the hype! ! I took island cuisine novices with me and they were easily converted thanks to the tenderness, spice, flavor and hospitality!! Everyone will return!  Comfortable, very casual and a home style feel. All you can eat dish fish plate of your choice. Friday, 19 Apr!!! YUM!! More...

What can I say? Thus far, these guys get the best Jamaican Cuisine in the DFW area award. I had the trio - jerk chicken, pork, and oxtails with peas and rice and cabbage. It was all delicious. The pork - it could have been more tender, but it still does not warrant losing a star. The oxtails were DELICIOUS. I asked for hot sauce but was pleasantly surprised with whatever delicious island concoction they brought out. It was habanero ish and great. The cabbage and peas and rice were authentic tasting. I had the chocolate rum cake. I loved it, but I am a bit sad to see that I did not get the sauce I an seeing in the photos. Still, not enough to lose a star. The place was clean, the service was great, and the employees were nice. Usually, I judge Jamaican food by "American" standards. This place gets five stars by Jamaican standards. Oh, how I wished I lived in the area. More...

I called my order in. The girl on the phone was a little irritable but I placed it anyway. When I arrived my food was ready and the guy who brought me my food was very pleasant. He gave me some in house hot sauce which was very good but completely unnecessary because the food was good on its own. I ordered the oxtails with rice and peas & cabbage and it hit the spot. The only thing I would have changed is the amount of cabbage I received but I love vegetables so everyone else might not feel that way. I have had Jamaican food in a lot of different cities and this place is definitely in the top two. I will definitely be returning. More...
