Ferron’s Jamaican Jerk Chicken

(open for lunch and dinner)
LOCATION: Avenida 105 and Constituyentes
Check out Facebook

"All the locals love this addition to Playa’s chicken scene. Almost everyone in Playa Del Carmen knows there are some good roast chicken places around, so another style of chicken is a welcome addition to the diversity of chicken taste. Jerk is made from allspice and Scott Bonnet peppers but can also have a host of other spices, so you can get a variety of flavors all under the name of jerk. The jerk seasoning at Ferron’s is not too heavy but if you want some flavor and spice they have a kicking spicy salsa. Ferron’s is now offering, fried chicken, and melt in your mouth ribs. This place delivers for under $4.00 …what a smoking great deal!"
