The Real Jerk is a 28 year old Jamaican black owned restaurant that many Torontonians will remember as a landmark with it’s bright sunny logo on the corner of Queen and Broadview.
A controversial eviction that occurred caused the restaurant to close temporarily but owners Ed and Lily Pottinger have found a new location. That’s right! For those who thought it was gone for good, think again! The restaurant is now located at 842 Gerrard St E. Same bright atmosphere, same friendly staff, same amazing food, sans the sunny corner logo.
If you’ve never visited, you won’t be disappointed. The atmosphere is laid back and casual, prices are reasonable and if you are a karaoke fan you won’t want to miss Thursday nights.
