“Best jerk in Kingston”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

Fresh, flavorful and fiery. I enjoy the food and setting at Jojo's, even though the service might be a bit lax sometimes.

“Great atmosphere & authentic Jerk Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

Great place to hang out with friends...great atmosphere, food, drinks and authentic Jamaica Jerk food. The Jerk chicken & pork are excellent. Live music on Saturday nights, no cover charge.
Plenty of other items on the dinner menu besides jerk food, too!
Highly recommended, if you are in Kingston.

“Best Jamaican Jerk food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

I had my best Jamaican pork here. It was moist and tasty and fresh. For starter I had the delicious gungo soup with pig tail and we shared salt cod fritters. All very lovely. The very traditional and relaxing setting is under trees in a quiet area behind what looks like a car park. Not glamorous but one goes here for the food. A lot of locals flock to this place. Always a good sign. The service was friendly and our waitress kept us informed of a delay due to one of us ordering burger which took a while longer that the rest of stuff.

“Actually pretty good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

As many say this seems to be located at a strange spot, but once you arrive, the place is quite decent and the food was pretty tasty. I would recommend to give it a try
