Myself and 4 friends stopped to have a late lunch and drinks here after taking the ferry from Fort Fisher to Southport to do some shopping. The food came highly recommended in the reviews and the restaurant was the casual laid back atmosphere we were looking for. We highly enjoyed our meal and were finishing our drinks when one of...

My friend and I ventured out to do some shopping in the quaint shops in Southport, NC. We stopped for a late lunch upon the recommendation by one of the shop owners.. We were not disappointed, Loco Joe's Bar & Grill - so unique! Very homey feeling and staff was super nice. I ordered the fresh fish of the day,... More

Every single time I go I always get the fried green beans and pulled pork tacos. Never a single thing more. I haven't tired anything else because WOW those two things are perfect. I should adventure some more and try others but oh well! The only negative things I would say is that the tortilla chips are WAY too salty... More

My family has been coming to Loco Joes for years now. When we come down to Southport/OKI we always make sure we have at least one meal here. It is one of our favorite restaurants - anywhere. The food is excellent. The service is amazing. We love all the servers at Loco Joes. They even know what we are going... More

Loco Jo's has huge burgers done really well plus shrimp, sandwiches and other goodies.. it's a favorite for beer fans since they have many on the menu. it's often loud and usually crowded for lunch. arrive early

There is not much to chose from, but if you like what is on the menu it is a fun place. More for beer drinkers than winos though. It is the kind of place that serves everything in a plastic basket with parchment whether you want to eat with your hands..or not. The beer drinkers do well her, but the... More

Nice cozy establishment with a good selection of menu items, wine and other spirits. Very friendly staff, fair prices and overall a good place to visit. Parking can be a challenge some times.

My wife and I saw this little place in the end of a little strip mall. Very clean restaurant, courteous staff, and nice atmosphere. I had the grouper tacos blackened and my wife had the fish and chips. My tacos were very good. Perfect portions and my wife said the fish and chips were great. I would definitely recommend this...
