Focused on establishing Jamaican and Caribbean food items as a top choice in North America.

Founded in September 2011, Enas Jerkmania located in Springdale, Ohio, is the brainchild of Ms. Ena's sons Marlon and Ashford Hayles. This family-owned and operated restaurant utilizes the increasing popular fast casual dining model providing customers with speedy, authentic, Jamaican Jerk cuisine. Ashford and his wife Alicia, opened Ena's Jerkmania to make premium Jerk fare readily available to the mass market.

As the Ena's brand continues to expand, the Hayles' family are achieving their vision of solidifying Jamaican Jerk food as a top choice among ethnic cuisines. Ena's Jerkmania is the leading fast casual dining option for Jamaican food in Springdale, Ohio.

"Always great tasting, always fresh! We eat here all the time and are never disappointed. I always order jerk chicken bowl with rice and peas, plantains, meat pie and coco bread. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for some authentic Jamaican."
"First time here......must say.... AWESOME!!! Great food....I had the chicken mobay and it was deeeeelicious! Will be coming back for sure!!"
"Jamaica doesn't stop at the Jerk though, there are some great side items, like fried plantains, as well as sodas that you would normally only find in the Caribbean...or at Jungle Jim's."


Ms. Ena was born in Mendez, Saint Catherine in 1950. This is where she mastered her craft of cooking and perfected her well-known jerk sauce. Immigrating to the United States in 1982 under the leadership of her husband, Lloyd Hayles, they moved their five children to the Linden Area of Columbus, Ohio.

Known for their large Sunday family dinners, someone jokingly suggested the family open a restaurant. By December 1999, Ena’s Caribbean Kitchen opened its doors to the public in the same Linden Area `hey had immigrated to almost 20 years earlier. By 2004, Ena’s Caribbean Kitchen opened a larger location three doors down by renovating a dilapidated laundry mat. Currently, Ena’s Caribbean Kitchen has become one of Central Ohio’s favorite Caribbean restaurant and a staple within the Linden Area.

Come visit Ena’s Caribbean Kitchen at the intersection of Cleveland Ave and Myrtle Ave!
