Jo-Jo's serves an amazing array of shaved ice from a colorful shack in Waimea. As you step inside and your eyes adjust to the darkness, you eventually find the hand-made menus off to the right side. Even though it is just a small shack, much of the interior space is vacant with empty fixtures and no one seemed to be there. Just as I began to wonder if it still deserves the reputation for being the best shaved ice on the island and was about to turn around, the server came from out of the back. He was friendly and easy-going as I begin read and debate which ice to try. Thankfully, the long menu of flavors includes suggestions of their most popular ices. We split the Tropical rainbow which was refreshing and abundant, and came with a scoop of macadamia nut ice cream at the bottom. There is no place to sit inside, however, there are a couple benches out front. Added bonus -- They also have a selection of local funny chicken & rooster-based cards which I also bought. Local tees and other souvenir items are for sale as well.
