Good jerk. But maybe a tad over rated. I guess it's more of a hang out spot. Nice ambiance and a nice setting. I think it's over priced. But probably because they are popular. Jerk chicken was good, but I prefer scotchies jerk chicken better. I felt like all I had was a bag of bones. But still flavourful and... More

Although I visit JoJos frequently, I had not tried their ribs before last week. Five of us ordered a large platter of ribs with sides of green plantain with garlic butter and fries. The ribs were absolutely mouth-wateringly tender, the meat falling off the bone. And my dogs loved the bones that I took home! Highly recommended.

We were told that JOJOs was the best jerk dining in Kingston. We visited and tried the jerk chicken, jerk pork, jerk lobster, and festival. The jerk lobster was by far the best of the evening. Pork and chicken were ok but did not have as much flavour as we were lead to believe. Service was great as were the... More

A good place to begin tasting Jamaican Jerk Cuisine while enjoying a night of Karaoke. if this is your first visit, do not be put off by the "entrance" to the parking lot.. Yes it looks like the back end of some warehouse or stock yard until you turn the corner. Great place to go with friends and enjoy a... More

From the food to the staff to the back ground music, the vibe is just right. My most recent visit was for my suprise bachelorette party - where this was one of many stops. The staff were so helpful and ensured that myself and my 'Team' had a great time. If you go and I suggest that you do, the... More

I had the good fortune to spend an afternoon at Jo Jo's when a local friend suggested it was the best place in Kingston for jerk, along with other local specialties. What an afternoon it turned out to be! Paul and Anna, the owners, were so welcoming and enjoyed introducing me to all sorts of Jamaican delights. The jerk chicken... More

I've been going to Jojos since 2013! It's my EVERYTHING SPOT! - lunch date, dinner date, karaoke spot, live music spot, lyming with friends. The beers are always cold and the food is so so good!! Make sure you try the cook up saltfish with mash potatoes or fried green plantain :)

Enjoyed our meals. Ordered the pork chops (AMAZING). Also tried the ribs great flavors and falls off the bone. Goes well with a red stripe or some rum (Appleton v/x).
