After three years of driving his mobile restaurant around Tucson, Jamaican-born chef Duwayne Hall has a restaurant without wheels.

Hall opened D’s Island Grill JA in the Winterhaven Shopping Center space that housed Milagros Cafe Mexican restaurant, 3156 E. Fort Lowell Road. Hall said he is serving the same menu he prepared from his truck with a few extras. He pays homage to the former tenant with jerk chicken tacos and quesadillas. He also joins the burger race with a jerk burger, available with fries and a drink for $6.99.

D’s Island Grill JA is open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and from noon to 6 p.m. Sundays.
