Rick's Cafe

The smell of plantains and curry hit you as soon as you walk through the door at this Jamaican carryout in Buena Vista, and things keep getting better from there. There are palm trees (fake), a grill (real), and a counter where you’ll order your food. Rick’s Cafe is large for a take-out joint and has a few tables, though most people take their food to go. Go with the $7.50 chicken lunch special (get the jerk, add the spicy sauce) with two sides (we love the rice and peas and cabbage, but the greens are great, too), which is a superb deal, especially considering the “small” portion is big enough that you might have leftovers.
