Barrington’s YELP Reviews

~Love this place and always enjoy chatting it up with Barrington at the drive-thru. Usually, get the jerk chicken combo with rice n peas. Have had the goat and oxtail with both very tasty. Glad to see him still in business with the virus shutting things down. Highly recommend!
