Now the North end of the island has their own Jo Jo's. Check out the new location in the heart of Hanalei. It's a must treat for any visit to Kauai.

Must have new owners. Similar shave ice but different atmosphere from years ago. Miss Bob Marley's picture on wall - no personality now. Also disappointed that seems to be run by teenagers when we were there. Had 5-6 young people laughing among themselves behind the counter. Closed 10 minutes early and lost several customers because of it. Too bad.

On our recent trip to Kauai, our family decided to sample as many shave ice places as possible. This Jo Jo's (across from Waimea High School) was rated the worse. We have been here on our many trips before but it is obvious that it is no longer owned by the original owners. When we first walked in, it was... More

When we first came here in 2010 it had this homegrown feeling. And the best shave ice on the island. Now we return 4 years later and take all grown up! There was no clutter inside and hey had computers/iPads to take our order. Doesn't matter; menu is the same and the shave ice is still the best on the... More

Never had shave ice before so nothing to compare it to but wow was it good. The flavors offered are many and we went every day we were there - 4!

Almost have to stop here coming back from the Canyon. The shave ice is very good (should be for ~$9 each). The shave ice is piled on top of ice cream (vanilla or macadamia nut, I think) in a variety of flavors. Very refreshing! Two words of warning: 1) there is only street parking so park across the street by... More

The shaved ice here is great. It can get crowded and be a bit slow, but don't worry, the end result is really good.

I've heard about JoJo's and it really does have great shaved ice. Especially a good treat after wondering around the canyon.

We have been here multiple times and this last time we were told this is not the original Jo Jo's. Regardless, we love their shave ice and all the different favors. It's almost impossible to pick what you want, but after multiple visits, we have never been disappointed. We'll probably try the original Jo Jo's, but that doesn't mean we... More

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
