...Beyond the seafood and the soul food, the menu is rounded out with steaks, pork chops and, for more casual dining, sandwiches and burgers... but Simmie's soul food and seafood are gold-standard classics.

...Simmie's is not an everyday affair: it's a treat, and, if Munch stops eating when Munch is full (Munch hardly ever does that, being a lifetime member of the Clean Plate Club) then Munch could Twitter, "buy it for lunch, eat it for dinner" because you really get a lot of food...
All of their food is delicious, great menu. Down home cooking, good portions. If you never been, try it and see for yourself.
We had fish from the takeout side today. The fish is cornmeal-dusted, well-seasoned and fried. The pieces aren't too big, and a lunch-sized sandwich was $1.50! We'll eat here again.
Awesome store... When you walk in and stare straight you see fridges of 40s, beer and cold alcoholic beverages like in the corner stores. Then you look left are frozen fresh fish for sell, as well as frozen Jamaican beef/ chicken patties. You look right, there's a variety of different hot plates, like rice and gravy, BBQ wings, cabbage.
All the folks that work there are friendly and love to joke around. Good atmosphere. I've had their BBQ wings, bomb, I mean hollla good, just the right spice, large in size. Potatoes dish and cabbage was good. You can buy a box of 40 something frozen patties to go, apparently they are the only distributors to all em Jamaican/ Caribbean joints around town.
Should go get lunch or dinner to go. They let you taste samples of their hot food too. Never been in the restaurant portion though.
