Restaurant moving downtown in 2 weeks, letting you be a jerk today


Today’s your chance to be a jerk or at least eat some jerk at a restaurant moving downtown in two weeks.

Jose Estremera, co-owner of Agnes All Natural Grill, said the Monday jerk platter special — a jerk burger, two jerk wings and an order of jerk fries — is $5.

“It has been pretty hot,” he said in reference to his “Be a Jerk” Monday promotion. We sell a lot of them on Mondays.”

Tonight’s dinner special is Caribbean curry chicken with two sides for $9.50.

The restaurant at 1438 N. Keowee St. has offered the Be a Jerk special for about six months. It bills itself as providing “a fast way to eat healthy.”

Other daily Caribbean specials include Turkey Tuesdays (turkey meals for half off), Wild Out Wednesdays (free hand-cut fries with the purchases of a coco bread sandwich), Burger Thursday ( two burgers for $5) and Veggie Fridays (half off veggie meals).

Agnes plans to relocate to PNC Center at 6 N. Main St. beginning July 8, Estremera said.
