Great Family Sushi / Sashimi Spot

I want to personally thank Jo and his family for a terrific evening at the moment my family was in need of it (the memorial weekend for a family member). Your sashimi / sushi is perfectly fresh and impeccably prepared. Your service is excellent, accented with a dash of rye humor. My wife is... read more

Excellent sushi place and the prices are decent. We ate there twice during our stay in the area. The service is friendly and efficient. Definitely worth a try if you're looking for sushi or rolls. They also use real crab, not the fake stuff.

Go for specials just because those are pretty impossible to find anywhere else! Good variety of cold sake... Definitely worth stopping by. I am not too fond of the interior and service, pretty average.... But I go there pretty often for those specials! One negative - closed on Sundays!

I stayed at a hotel around the corner and wanted something close by. I have eaten Outback far too many times. Jo's was next door so I gave it a chance. It’s a little hole in the wall type place but I’ve learned from traveling a lot that those can often have great food. I was right... From the moment... More

We were treated to a fantastic and plentiful platter of eight kinds of sashimi, including abalone last Monday evening. Fresh, and tasty, it must have cost over $200!!!! Friends are the best. Also tantalizing were the spicy tuna handrolls, tempura, gyoza, and nigiri sushi. Honda-san has changed my mind about sushi bars in Contra Costa County!!!!

Great food, lots of variety of sake, and lots of fun! Friendly staff! Jo comes around to offer us free Soju once in awhile. We also get freebies such as salmon head and gyoza.

We hadn't been to Jo's in a long time (once they moved, it became alot more difficult to get a seat!) but I asked the kids to bring me for Mother's Day. We started with oysters on ice with a ginger mignonette that is to die for. Next, we got a bunch of nigiri- the garlic albacore is absolutely melt-in-your-mouth... More

We have been going to Jo's since 2000, when he was in a different location (near the Outback Steakhouse). Jo is almost always behind the counter and the serving staff has been the same this entire time. The menu includes the standards plus some unique-to-Jo rolls. The fish is always fresh - sometimes the toro seems to just melt in... More
