Nice little place and priced right. The place has history. Dates back to the Boardwalk Empire days. Food was good and the place even has its celebrity sighting with Eric Clapton eating here on more than one time. Jerry Ehrlich from the Great City of Philadelphia

We are here often for breakfast, it's always good. It's definitely no frills and there are a group of old men discussing politics but if you want a good cheap breakfast, head to JoJo's.

Comfortable dining and friendly staff. Food is not gourmet, but it is pretty good and has good value. I don't know what else to say, but I'm supposed to say 50 words to submit this review.

My husband and I love trying small quaint local eateries throughout the state this one was bad from hello. Actually no one even greeted us, a man sitting at the counter said to take a seat. It took quite sometime to be acknowledged and offered coffee, when the coffee was brought we were given a small ration of creamers which... More

We had breakfast at JoJo's this morning. The waitress was friendly and the food was delicious. The corned beef hash was cooked perfectly. This is the perfect breakfast stop.

So many upgrades to the building both inside and out. It's full of character between the walls and patrons. John, Laura, and Becky are wonderful! We love the food! We love the friends!

We used to go here all of the time. The rugs in this place always grossed me out since they haven't been changed in FOREVER. Who has a restaurant with wall to wall carpet anyway? The food the last time we went was pretty greasy and we have decided not to frequent this place anymore. It is in desperate need... More

This was by far the best breakfast I ever had! My boyfriend took me here and when we pulled up I thought well it's a bit run down but it was SOOO GOOD. I had egg, cheese bacon on wheat toast with a side of home fries, he had french toast topped with bananas and strawberries. It was divine!

We had breakfast here after a somewhat exhausting stay at the Seaview Hotel. The service was great, the prices were good and the funky 40's-50's decor entertaining. The decor is quite original so don't expect trendy comfort. The food was old-fashioned breakfast food, pancakes, eggs pork roll and bacon. Good coffee.
