RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA TV) - The 605 Magazine March issue is now out and a local restaurant is getting some attention.

Publishers reviewed A&D Jamaican Restaurant located at 710 North Lacrosse Street in Rapid City. Alana Synder with 605 says they stumbled upon this hidden gem after a tip from a friend and now they can't get enough.

It's authentic Jamaican cuisine. They serve up traditional foods like oxtail, rice and beans, curry goat and dumplings they call spinners.

Synder also says their soft drinks are an extra special treat because they can usually only be found in Jamaica.

The restaurant will celebrate its one year anniversary in April and Synder says people need to check out this unique eatery.

"It's delicious, super different," said Synder. "It's something you can't make at home. Or you could, but how often do you make oxtail at home? It's a really unique, cool place. It's like you are on a little vacation for dinner and lunch."

The owner of A&D says while their food options are a little different than what people might be used to, he hopes they give things like oxtail a chance.

"It's a really tasty meat. I know South Dakotans go for flavor, and it's really flavorful," said Howell. "I know they will love it. I am just hoping the come a little bit more during the summertime."

A&D is open seven days a week 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. at 710 North Lacrosse Street, Rapid City.

And 605 Mag can be found on stands now.
