The Island Spot Welcomes New Oak Cliff Location

July 20, 2016

The Island Spot Oak Cliff

There’s a new kid on the block Dallas #foodies, and they’re ushering in the taste of the islands to hit the spot. With its original location in Carrollton, The Island Spot will now expand its horizons to Oak Cliff’s Jefferson Tower — bringing local foodie favorites spanning its award-winning jerk chicken to curry goat to Mama Joyce’s chicken and waffles.

Slated for a July 25th soft opening, the second Island Spot location boasts even more square footage; upstairs, downstairs, and patio dining; an official rum bar; and an island vibe that will most certainly take you away.

“At The Island Spot, you enjoy the tastes and the vibes of Jamaica every time you dine with us,” Owner Richard Thomas said.

And we couldn’t agree more.

Family-owned and operated, the new Island Spot location will add Caribbean flavor to the already bustling shop and dine vibe for Oak Cliff. If traditional rum punch, stewed ox tails, and Jamaican seasonings tickle your tastebuds, then you should run, not walk, to what we’re already dubbing to be Oak Cliff’s spiciest new hit.

  1. It wouldn’t take five minutes to update your page to tell people that YOU ARE NOT OPEN YET!!!! This is the second time I have been to your location after seeing that you are open and taking guests with me and sitting staring at a closed store front. Three times and you are out!! I swear.

    1. Hi Christopher! We are sorry to hear about your experience. We are only a media website reporting what information is provided to us. We would suggest contacting The Island Spot directly to get an official opening date. Just by glance on their Facebook page it says that they are awaiting final approval on permits by the city.
