Where do I begin?  Cutlass Grille is amazing and has never disappointed.  My favorites in no particular order are Curry Goat, Oxtails, and Jerk Chicken.  As for the sides, I give two thumbs up to the macaroni and cheese and  beens and rice.  The collard greens and cabbage are good but meh for the most part lack soulful flavor (yes I ... read more

This spot is at the top of my list for places that sell Jerk chicken. It's grilled to perfection and due to its excellent flavor, a sauce is not needed. The Mac n cheese was moist and had a "fresh" flavor as if prepared on the spot. I also got the collard greens, which had a slight sweet flavor but didn't deter me away. Overall the v ... read more

Love this place. It's good every time I go. There is a little wait whenever I order, 10-15 minutes, whether it's pick up or dine in but the food is fresh so it's worth it. I'd rather go here than the chain lower level restaurants (ruby Tuesday/Applebee's). Real seasoned food!
