Read reviews thought give a try. Service was okay, brisket was good only two slices, ribs were good only two pieces, potato salad was great healthy serving, home made french fries great. Cost verse quantity not worth will not go there again. Maybe my fought for not inquiring about quantity.

Avoid this place unless you are desperate. Smells fried and you will smell fried when you leave. Help is unfriendly and feels as if you are eating in a gas station with too many flies. The cashier at the register was irritated that upon our first and last visit, that we did not automatically grasp the overhead menu and spout... More

When travelling thru Abilene this past week we had a craving for BBQ! So we googled any place close! Lo and behold, google said to turn off onto FM1750 and go to the small ville of Potosi which was really a mile or two off the fwy. thru town. Great BBQ and sauce! Friendly order taker and wait staff and... More

Had to try this place after reading the glowing reviews I now have my own. Ordered the brisket and sausage plate with beans and a baked potato. Glad I got the baked potato as it was the only thing on the plate hot. The brisket was luke warm at best but did have a great flavor and was moist. The... More

Our family loves Jojo's BBQ! We have tried the brisket, chicken fried steak and "Jo Ritto's" their version of a burrito but with shredded brisket for the meat. We have loved EVERYTHING we have ordered. The atmosphere reminds me of an old timey BBQ joint. The restaurant is very clean and has great service. I highly recommend!

This is good ole fashioned country barbecue the way it's supposed to be. The combo sandwich with brisket and sausage is the ticket. Really the whole menu is pretty tasty.

Purchased 16lbs of ribs and brisket for a wedding party. Most of the guests said it was the best rib and brisket they had. The ribs went really fast. Even when reheated the following day the new guests said it was the best they had also. Will go back next time. Not that far south of Abilene, only 10 minutes... More

Great prices, delicious BBQ and plenty of it. Side selections of various types for everyone. Nothing to dislike, but, be prepared for a crowd if you go during busy eating times. A popular place for BBQ.

Husband and I made a pit stop to grab a couple chopped sandwiches and some fries for our son. All of the above was delicious! The meat was tender and juicy, the sauce was great and the homemade fries were just right! Soft but crispy! Yum!!
