Roadtrip Review: Mamma's Caribbean Grill

Today's choice off the Breakfast Menu is the Mamma's Caribbean Grill in Charlotte, NC.

We went out for a night on the town and a quick urban spoon search pointed us to Mamma's Caribean Grille as a good late night option for a Saturday night. We were impressed by  the spicy food and good times with good friends. 


Mamma's Caribean Grille has an open mic on Saturdays and they charge you a 10 dollar cover. We were only there to eat so we were very happy when they door guy waved our fee to let us in. There was a comedian that night who was painfully unfunny and a singer and poet who were okay. 

We were there for the food and we were not disappointing. The food was delicious and had a lot of down home flavor. I have to say the jerk chicken was WAY TOO spicy for me, but that is because I don't like spice. It was very hot, so hot that all I could think over and over again was "hot hot hot." as I ate it. I soothed my burning tongue with their delicious monkey bread and their special Mamma's Jamaican Tea. the Tea was very sweet, but I liked it.

Overall Experience:
Service:                  3
Ambiance:              3
Menu:                     3
Food taste/Quality: 4

I give the whole experience 3 out of 5 broken eggs:

The food was tasty but hot. The place looks and feels a little like a dive, but I was there for soul food and not ambiance. I love the door guy for letting us in without the cover. The Jerk chicken was like I remembered from Jamaica, except hotter than the sun. I recommend it if you want a Jamaican food fix in the Charlotte area.
