the food here is very good but when you walk in and are told if you are only two people, you must sit at the bar (because they save the tables for larger groups) is an immediate turn off. How about the 4 tops who came in after me wait at the bar for 15 min and run up a... More

While me and a friend shopped, the guys snuck in and enjoyed great beers and conversation with the owner, who is originally from CT!

I had the Mahi fish tacos (blacked) and a draft. The tacos were very good. The staff is friendly. I would go back. It is on the smaller side and in a strip mall, but don't let that dissuade you. They have been open for years. I like it!

Best place in Southport. Staff is fabulous and so many great menu choices!!! Blackened Tuna Taco's are to die for and if you are lucky enough to go the night when Bird's Nest Chow Mein is a special, just say Amen!!!

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

We ducked in and had lunch. The food was fresh and good. We had wing appetizers and the Cabo fish tacos and fried... More
