When traveling through Southport to get to Sunset Beach, I used Tripadvisor to help locate a good restaurant and boy did we find a good one. My husband and I got the Tuna Tacos, so fresh and wonderful and even though they do not have a kids menu, the Fish and Chips were right up my son's alley. Loco Jo's... More

Basically a small bar with food. I have gluten allergies and when I told the waitress, she went "ugh..." They could find an ingredient list for sauces so recommended I just didn't eat any if the sauces. I finally found something I could have but felt like I had 4 heads by the time I ordered. There are no corn... More

We walked several blocks up Howe Street to get to Loco Jo's. We nearly caved in from the heat and ate somewhere else. Glad we didn't. The food was great and the beer selection is ridiculous! The staff was as sweet as pie. The only knock is that it will hit the wallet pretty hard -- at least as far... More

Wife and I were caught in a downpour while shopping and asked the lady behind the counter if there was anyplace close by to get a bite to eat.She recommended Loco Jo's just a couple doors down. We ducked in and had lunch. The food was fresh and good. We had wing appetizers and the Cabo fish tacos and fried... More

1st time visit but will be back. Hubby and I both tried the fish tacos....me the shrimp and him the tuna. Very friendly staff and service was quick. Filled our drinks promptly and suggested chocolate covered key lime pie for dessert. We split one as we weren't sure but it was quite yummy. Would definitely recommend for good food at... More

I'm from NC and took two new friends who visited from Michigan and Ohio to Loco Joe's. Great service, suggestions of what to eat, accommodated gluten free diet needs! See food photos -Two of us split blackened shrimp and grouper tacos. One needed to be gluten free. They split and served the tacos - one with no soft taco shell... More

Go here for a very tasty burger. Mine was smothered in sautéed onions and was large and delicious. Service was quick.

This restaurant is very small but boy were those the best fish tacos I've ever had. Located along the fun strip on Howe Street. Lots of cool draft beer and fresh seafood. I must admit, I love the fish tacos so much, I've never tried anything else but one day.....

Grouper Tacos were great. Little pricey for small meal. Service was lacking initially. No one even acknowledged us after standing there, then sitting at a table for a while. Once our waitress did come over, the service was great from that point on. Friendly local place. Will go back next summer, again. $11.95 or so for 2 tacos and chips... More

We travel from PA and this is our favorite Southport stop. Everything is PHENOMENAL! Best Fish and Chips I have ever had in my life! We tried wings this time on their 50 cent wing night. Wow! They were superb. My husband had the seafood wrap and the Tuna was way better than the Provision Co. where he always goes... More
