Wow

Good things come in small packages. Sat outside and enjoyed our lemongrass curry and Saigon pork AND the people at the table next to us. Wonderful food and waitress. Maybe a bit noisy inside.

Small "cheers" type of hang-out. Not fancy, simply good food and fun. My favorite are the fish tacos.

Located in a strip series of stores. Specializes in large beer selection with several good craft beers.. The food is also very good. Everything from hamburgers to fish tacos, barbeque, Vietnamese specialties, etc, etc. We go there a lot there are two TVs to watch sports and you can see lots of interesting people. It is a small place but... More

The lady who greeted me as I entered wasn't too nice. She warned up but it set the tone for me. She said she guessed it would be ok if I sat at a table???? Oh well we had a tasty crab dip and blackened mahi tacos. Both were too spicy for me but my husband enjoyed them. I hate... More

My husband and I have visited several times and have never been disappointed. It's very small and there's usually a wait. Their Kobe sliders are my favorite. And in my opinion, they have the best fish tacos in town.

The new Summer Rolls are amazing!! Cucumber, basil, mint, pork...an amazing Thai sauce. And their hamburgers, and Cuban sandwich... absolutely delicious!!! A wide variety of beer too if you drink beer. It's an amazing fun restaurant. The Locals favorite! When you come to Southport, don't miss this taste of Southport.

Don't miss a stop at Loco Jo's when in Southport. The food is fabulous, lots of beer choices, and a fun, friendly atmosphere. Small in size, but big rating!

Loco Jo's was referred to me by a local when I first relocated here. I went with friends who visited. Limited seating but very friendly. (Please note, if you are 2 in your party, you'll be asked to sit at the bar. .in a very friendly way). Great beer selection and food is fresh and seafood is great. Try the... More

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...
