We were only in town for three nights and luckily we stopped here on our first night. It was so good we went back again before leaving! The food was all fantastic barbecue done right - cooked slowly! It is unusual for my wife, my 8 year old, and I to all consider something a "favorite", but this qualified. The... More

We've eaten here a couple of times, and weren't all that thrilled any time we were there. The place has been a bar/hotel for well over 100 years, and it's showing it's age. The staff was friendly and accommodating enough, and the portions were adequate; but I can't say the BBQ was anything extraordinary. Neither were the sides we had.... More

Tremendous barbecue, and amazingly fun and helpful staff. We came here with our daughter's volleyball team last Sunday, and the owner made a special trip in from his home to make sure we were satisfied. Remarkable! Coming back when they open in Lititz.

What a great place to eat BBQ..... AND drink beer, craft beer! The food was excellent and the beer was very good too. They give you a lot of food so you may even want to share a platter, just don't share the beer! The only negative I took from JoBoys was the sample beer prices. They charge $2 a... More

My girlfriend (that would be "Daphne") and I (that would be me, "Scooby") stopped by after church at LCBC in the cornfields outside Manheim. Initially we'd been looking at just returning to our normal haunts in the Hershey/Hummelstown area, but decided to head further out from home and give JoBoy's a initial try. So glad we decided to do so!... More

Melt in your mouth pulled pork - awesome owners, very personable - DH likes the craft beers - like that they promote local wines.

Wow. Recently moved to Manheim and we are busy finding local establishments to enjoy and this place exceeded everything in our eyes. We went for lunch on a snowy day finding this little gem near the post office. We had to park in the rear and walk down a narrow alley to the front, no big deal. Greeted by a... More

WOW, what a great place. I had the half rack of ribs, which was a normal full rack at other restaurants. I took some of them home for a second meal. We can't' wait for this place to move to Lititz.

Our large group attended JoBoy;s after visiting the Mount Hope Dickens play; service was sporadic for our group; food was very good specializing in barbecue; will return again when in the area.

Best bbq around. Cannot wait until they come to Lititz. Nice people run it too... Talkative, friendly, honest, and a military veteran, who served his country for you and me.
