This gem is in the heart of south end Charlotte! First off. The service was perfect! I had the fried chicken with vegetables & rice, but that gravy tho babbbyyyy! It was everything, will be going back ASAP!

This is not the place to have your first jamacian food experience (respectfully) This meal was a let down. I ordered the veg roti w/brown gravy and a side of rice n beans. The sheer amount of thyme sprigs in the vegetable mix made it inedible b/c the sprigs and stems were like navigating fish bones. The pic attached is what I pulled out of mouth in FIRST fork full, Aside from that it was in desperate need of salt. The roti skin was fine slightly on the heavier side but fine, the texture of the rice and beans is good.
Speaking from experience, Fidels Authentic Jamaican Restaurant has the taste or true Jamaican food. I was so impressed that I ordered the same plate the next day. What I like most is that I order my Oxtails, white rice and cabbage with extra gravy and a half. My food was juicy from the first bite to the last. I am completely satisfied and Im about to order my Oxtails for a third time. Thereby, allow me to finish this post by saying, Theyre Great, and you should try Fidels Authentic Jamaican Restaurant IMMEDIATELY!
Great food and large portion sizes. We ordered the jerk chicken and brown stew chicken lunch specials and both were delicious with very generous portions! I would say they were dinner sized portions rather than lunch sized. We both got sides of rice and peas and mac and cheese which were both very tasty. The owner is super - we had a bit of a snafu with the groupon we bought and he was very accommodating and helpful. Parking was right out front which is always a nice surprise in Charlotte!
I had this food on my birthday the meats it self was great but the macaroni and rice was super dry and didnt have any flavor, when the owner asked how we liked it we told our honest opinion. He didnt offer a refund or nothing to make us feel better about spending 63$ that wasnt worth it. Especially the rice is what makes the meal. The man even asked how do we make macaroni so he know next time. Which Is fine but idk I dont think Ill ever eat here again.
