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

Can you say AMAZING!!! Fish Tacos are the way to go! Loco Jo's is a must stop when we are in Southport. Want to go where the Locals go - we found the spot.

Visiting from Massachusetts. Was brought here by my friends parents who rave about this place. Great beer selection. The food was also great. I had the Kobe beef sliders which were tasty. My friend had the blackened tuna tacos. I had a taste and they were fantastic. Definitely recommend that dish. Going to make it a point to go back... More

Great local bar with a great beer selection and interesting pub food. The blackened tuna tacos are made with sushi grade tuna and melt in your mouth. The best I've ever had.
