    My family wanted Caribbean food and HPGrill hit the spot! Excellent food, excellent service, and we were able to sit outside and be comfortable. We are a party of 4 and enjoyed the fresh and delicious escoveith fish and tender oxtails. We had sorrel, pineapple ginger, and lemonade to drink. As appetizers, we enjoyed the flavorful beef and spinach patties.

    Everything taste authentic. The curry taste great. The rice is light and not sticky. The brown stewed chicken just falls off the bones and the curry goat just melts in your mouth!!! Definitely my favorite Caribbean restaurant ?????

    Nice and polite, quaint location with food that is PACKED with authentic Caribbean flavor. Real fruit juices are a mighty score. I've only had to wait more than 20 minutes ONE TIME for an entree that was worth the wait!! Thanks Hot Pot, my new favorite cultural eartery.

    This food is a breath of fresh air in this area. Too many terrible Caribbean/Jamaican restaurants around, so I'm glad I've found this authentic and very tasty spot. Service is great and food doesn't take forever to be served. The portions are good too! Only thing I'd ask for is that y'all open up on Sundays too!

    Absolutely the best authentic Jamaican restaurant. Very tasty food and clean cooking. Environment is very nice and the ambiance is great. The owners have wonderful Jamaican hospitality. Very Warm and inviting environment and the food is AWESOME!! The goat soup has healing power. It certainly helped me when I had a major surgery. Manish Water(Goat Soup) is all I ate and I am doing great. Big up HOT POT GRILL !!

    This is one of my favorite Jamaica restaurants. The brown stew chicken is excellent as well as their curry chicken. It is authentic Jamaica food and fresh food. Please check them out.

    Coming from an actual Jamaican, this is my favorite of the new Jamaican restaurants in the DC area; it has more of the extra Jamaican stuff than you find in other Jamaican restaurants, especially beverages. I make my here from VA for this stuff!

    I first went about 2 weeks after it opened. The service was excellent and the food was equally pleasing. I'm West Indian, recently moved from Brooklyn, so I know good Caribbean food when I taste it. I ordered the brown stew fish. It was very flavorful. Beware though, there was a rather large piece of scotch bonnet pepper in the gravy - don't worry I could handle it. The plate was beautifully garnished, I hope these nice finishing touches continue and aren't just a new store thing

    My sister treated us to lunch at work. I got curry chicken lunch special. Came with rice and beans and cabbage. The chicken (thigh and leg) was moist and not over cooked. I could have stood more curry spice but it was good anyway. It also came with a can soda and mints. Not bad for $6.00 and just the right size/ portion. Thanks sis!

    Jerk BBQ chicken was delicious sauce was outstanding. No wait and reasonable prices. I will definitely be back.

    My 4th time here in the last week! The food is very good if you've ever been to Jamaica they burn the curry which most people here do not! I haven't tried anything other than the charmed chicken and beef patty but it's very good

  • *****

    Ackee and saltfish is so delicious, I love how they will make it fresh you! The chicken soup, curry chicken, and roti was good as well.

  • *****

    I ordered food from here on Uber eats and it was incredible. I read some reviews that the food was flavorless but order the jerk salmon and I am sure your mind will be changed! The food was super flavorful and had the perfect mixture of spicy meets sweet and savory. I was also surprised because usually when you order food to go it can be cold and very disorderly but that was not the case. The presentation was nice and the food was warm. Will definitely order from there again!!

  • *****

    What we ordered: jerk chicken plate with cabbage and rice, jerk chicken wings. Both great tasting. We ordered to go so I can't say for the service but great food.

  • *****

    The Caribbean spices fill the air as soon as the door opens, so you know dishes are well seasoned. Great customer service from the cashier to the owner. Will be back to sample other dishes.

  • *****

    My very first visit, excellent tasty food in addition to friendly staff. I had the spinach patties with plantains which were made to order. Then they had my absolute favorite beverage, ginger & pineapple simply delicious! Although they ran out of beef patties for the meat eaters in my family and there was a substantial wait to prepare more so we had to leave without them. Nonetheless, I was very satisfied with my food. I will be returning??

    Delicious! I wasn’t feeling well and I stopped in on 5/18/19 for some soup and a order of plantains. Let me tell you the soup was AMAZING and my plantains tasted great! I no longer have to travel to Gaithersburg, Maryland for authentic Jamaican food. I can’t wait to try the other menu options.

    This resturant serves real authentic Jamaican food and it's very very very good. The service is very welcoming and warm.. I enjoyed the experience

  • *****

    first time eating here but it surely wont ge the last. My club stopped here on a ride back from philly and had the best curry goat, stewed chicken, curry chicken, and oxtails. I can truly say they are caring owners and great cooks. I'm ready for my next visit. It even made someone who does eat west Indian food a believer.

    I am very happy that this great home cook restaurant open last year. I have no family who can cook like grandma and they are surly close to it.
    I just want to say thank you to the hot pot grill family for there love in cooking and caring for me in my time of need there are truly family.
    Thank you.

    I have been to this restaurant a few times now and the food and service are great. The place is clean, you can see into the kitchen and see how they prepare your food so there is no concern for the customer. They have a good selection of authentic Jamaican cuisine and I'm looking forward to seeing what else they may add to the menu. Lastly, di food slap way! Mi haffi lick mi ten finga dem when mi done (translation - the food tastes awesome. I'm satisfied after ever meal).

    Food excellent, Love the staff also. I am the Jamician want to be. Love extra gravy on rice. OMG please try this place.

  • *****

    I’ve ordered the curry shrimp roti & curry vegetable roti from this place, both amazing! The shrimp was perfect - tender, juicy and not over cooked like every other place I’ve ordered from, including Iris Cafe (who had rubbery, over cooked shrimp in their roti).

  • *****

    Nice place. Tried the Jerk BBQ and I love it. Have to try more from the menu. Cabbage is bomb! I'll be back.

  • *****

    Not too many places will ever get me to say this....This place good is for the soul and make u feel like Sunday dinner at grandmama house

  • *****

    The food is very good here natural seasonings and not too salty. For Persons with hypertension like myself and are very sceptical about eating out I would definitely recommend this Jamaican place you wont be disappointed, seasoning is Just right and suitable for all individuals. I love curry and their curry goat was to die for well seasoned and not too spicy. Rice and peas was just perfect.

  • *****

    Peace. This is a Jamaican Restaurant not like any other around. The Curried Chick Peas is delicious with the broccoli and cauliflower. Cabbage melts in my mouth. The Goat is A1. So many healthy options to choose from. Peace.
