Our Story

The Owners

Lee and Tiffany, Lee has the passion for cooking that was handed down to him by his mother when he was a young boy growing up in St. Catherine Jamaica. Lee’s mother often had to work long hours to support his family so Lee would do his part to assist his mother in the preparation of the meal by seasoning and preparing it for his mother so she only had to put it in the pot when she returned home from work. In this way not only did Lee assist his mother but in turn she gave Lee the culinary skills he shares with us today at Ackee Tree.

Tiffany, loving to make people smile and being from Chicago brings her soul food flare to the food and environment adding delicious tastes such as our Mac n’ Cheese and Collard Greens, she is the face of Ackee Tree that welcomes you as you come in to enjoy not a fast food meal but a fresh food meal. Ackee Tree not only serves you here fresh at your table, to go orders, delivery by Yelp or Grub Hub and we also cater to your special occasions and events.

Fresh Ingredients, Tasty Meals

Be warned however, the combination of sweet and savory spices
mixed with fragrant wood is very hard to resist.

Yes!!!! And not one regret. ”
