There are two in town. The one on the highway is at least 40% more than the one on Waimea Rd where all the locals go. So, went to the one on Waimea Rd and it was 10 bucks and change for two shave ice with ice cream. Went to the one on the highway the next day and it... More

JoJo's was one of five shave ice places our family tried & definitely not the best, #5 on our list. Plus $21 for 3 shave ice treats We tried Lilo & Stitch, & made a couple others from scratch. Try the shave ice at kalapaki beach hut, it's the best!

We tried many shave ice places on Kaua'i and this is the best we had. Understand, this is no Sno-Cone! With 64 different flavors, there is something here for everyone. We were told that this would be the best place for shave ice, and it did not disappoint. At the bottom of the shave ice was the best macadamia nut... More

We were told this was the best shave ice on Kauai. We can't swear to that, as it was the only one we tried, but it was really, really good. Lots of flavor combos and they are very helpful when you are trying to decide. I am not a fan of sno-cones or Italian ice, but this was better than... More

This was the best shave ice we had on Kauai. The ice itself was very fine and soft, and not at all icy or hard. Carefully packed and held its consistency throughout. There were also a huge range of syrups, and they tasted very good, not too cloying as at some other places. Also, the ice held the syrup well,... More

Great Shave Ice - Small location but has tons of flavors. Sometimes a line out the door to get in. Get the Banana Split combo - delicious!

Best shaved ice we've ever had! I'd been warned that the service is slow but it was definitely worth the wait. I got one of their creations with macadamia nut ice cream inside and several flavors on top and each bit got better as it all melted together. It's worth the drive!

The is the best shave ice I ever had on the island. They place a scoop of your ice cream choice on the bottom of the shave ice. There are a multitude of flavors to chose from. It is expensive though.

No one beats Jo-Jo's for the finest most powdery shave ice on Kauai. All three times we've been to Kauai, we always make sure we stop by here when we're in Waimea. Two reasons why we give it 4 stars instead of 5: 1) no sugar-free syrups (we're trying to decrease our sugar intake as we get older, 2) wow,... More

Everywhere you go in Kauai you see signs for shaved ice. I didn't understand what was so great about shaved ice, but now I understand and the locals claim Jo-Jo's is the best. You pick a few flavors then a choice of which ice cream flavor you want at the bottom and then you have the option to add a... More
