  • 11 a.m. - 8 p.m. Mon-Wed; 10 a.m. - 10 p.m. Fri-Sat' 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. Sun
This longtime Mesquite institution serves some of the area’s best Caribbean food, including lovely beef patties with vivid yellow flakey pastry crusts, lively bone-in curries and tender jerk chicken with eye-opening spices. The rice and peas (that’s Jamaican for rice and beans) are terrific, too. Jamaican Cook Shop’s dining room is tiny, but its meals make for excellent takeout. Top pick: Excellent jerk chicken comes in heaping portions; there’s plenty to share.
