Jamaican Resraurants and Food In Charlotte, North Carolina, USA




 Google Local Map of Charlotte

For our survey of Jamaican restaurants in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA, we did a search for "Jamaican restaurants in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA" on, Local Maps prior to arriving in Charlotte and visiting the restaurants.

The search on yields the above map of Charlotte. As you can see in the left panel, the listing is primarily derived from Jamaican restaurants in Charlotte run in an East to West arch near the downtown area. They are all South of Highway 85. A few are near to the Highway 85. If you travel Highway 85 you may want to visit one of these restaurants for a change from the typical rest area fare. Prices are competitive.

Jamaican restaurants in Charlotte come in all sizes: some are fairly large sit-down restaurants, a few are only take-outs, and one combines a substantial grocery store with a take-out restaurant.

The number of Jamaican restaurants in Charlotte has grown with the growing Jamaican population. Some people feel the number of Jamaican restaurants, which depend primarily for patrons from the Jamaican community, cannot be supported by the size of the Jamaican population. Already, a few restaurants have closed. The other issue, of course, is that Jamaican cuisine is becoming mainstream and offerings are now available in a number of mainstream restaurants. Moreover, the average person in Charlotte is unaware of some of these restaurants. Of course, if you want an authentic dining experience and authentic Jamaican food, the chains cannot beat the local Jamaican restaurants.

This brief survey is meant to acquaint you with the restaurants and what they offer. If we have erred in our coverage in any way and you have better information please let us know and we will update our records accordingly.
