YUM!

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... read 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...

Had lunch with friends here and we all said it was excellent. I'm a burger lover and this was the best burger I've had in the Southport/Oak Island area. They obviously use top quality beef and know how to cook it. This place is usually packed with people so that tells you it's good food and service.

Stopped in with close friends who are local and have been telling us good things about the place. We were not at all disappointed. Good beer selection, very friendly service, and delicious fare. The dusted fried oysters were fresh and tasty, the seafood po boy with cod and shrimp was sumptuous, and the B K oysters were so good we... More

This is a super local spot, small and a bit hard to find but right on the main drag in Southport. Very friendly folks with quick service. Menu is adult food driven, Moms need to leave the kids at home or take them to McDonalds. I'm just saying . . Fairly limited seating, the bar works well for service and... More

This small place (6 tables plus bar) is on the corner of a strip mall and we probably would have driven right past without even seeing it if we had not seen the listing on tripadvisor. We stopped for an early dinner after a day at Southport before heading back to Topsail Island. Their menu offers a little bit of... More
