CARIBBEAN WARMTH FOR over THREE DECADES
The Real Jerk is a Toronto restaurant tradition. For three decades, Ed and Lily Pottinger have been offering delicious Caribbean cuisine in a laid back West Indian atmosphere: their iconic sunshiny logo is a beacon for good food and good times.
Our original Toronto store on Queen St.
In 1984, The Real Jerk opened its first Toronto location at Queen and Greenwood, before moving to its well-known flagship restaurant at the corner of Queen and Broadview. The Jerk Pit on Richmond was hopping then too, winning awards for live reggae music.
Since 2013, we’ve been cooking 7 days a week at our main Gerrard location, and at our smaller Beaches spot on Kingston Road - and we’re expanding into the west-side soon. Want The Real Jerk in your community? Contact us about having your own Restaurant: firstname.lastname@example.org.
