Sensational dry-rub flavor on lean generous portion of still warm cubed turkey made this Mojo crisp romaine salad memorable and perfect for New Year's resolutions. Cilantro dressing on the side was perfect... and ladies there is enough to share for two-especially if you want to sample some fried... read more

wait staff were attentive and friendly. nice selection of local brews. appetizers came out quickly and were plentiful. brisket was very tender. the side dishes were good. atmosphere was great, the blues theme had me craning my neck to take it all in. did not find it overly loud or dark. we will be back. it's another option for us...

Tasty bar-b-que and nice blues music, but the room was dark. A flashlight or cell phone is needed to read the menu (and this was during lunch). The waiter was attentive. The seats are hard (solid wood), so you will want to eat quickly and leave. No TV's during football season.

Mojo's has decent BBQ. Being from Memphis my standards are high but a good go to when in Jacksonville. The staff is always nice.

I like BBQ but a $14 lunch is a little too much. It's loud and the BBQ brisket, while okay, was just so-so. Sorry. Not for me.

From walking in the front door hearing righteous blues music classics and the welcoming invite from the staff and don't me leave out the heavenly smell from Daniel's cooking and flowing out of the kitchen, do not miss this place if you are in the area or if you are not close, it is worth the drive!!!

The food is very good, a notch above the "Big 3" in Jacksonville. Better quality brisket, although a bit too fatty; excellent sweet potato mash, very good bbq beans. Nice array of sauces. The question is: is it worth $13 as compared to $9 for lunch? For me, I'll stick with Sonny's and save the money.

No joke, the best ribs ever if you like a dry rub. If you're coming as a family the WHOLE HAWG is the best deal! We come, 2 adults, 2 kids and have a little for leftovers.

I love their food. They serve traditional BBQ meats and they are always seasoned and cooked perfectly. The prices are reasonable. The tables are in an open room with high ceilings so it gets loud, but it adds to the atmosphere. If they were a bit closer to the house I would make a point to eat there every week.

Eating lunch here is memorable, the food is great and the staff is very nice. I recommend the sampler platter; you get 3 different kinds of BBQ and then you know what you really like on your second visit...and you WILL visit again.
