We had the caprese salad, fish & chips and a burger. All were excellent. Butterscotch Puddin with bacon, Fabulous. And Javier was an excellent server with an answer for everything. Great time. Will go back!!!

First off , Carla and Joe were phenomenal and very attentive . I came for the fried chicken(served only on Thurs and Sun). I substituted the mash and Cole’s slaw with the side carrots and beans(FYI: your subs will still be an extra charged). Best...to keep the mash and Cole slaw👍. Mind you, it’s a 15 min wait, so be patient). The chicken breast was on the dryer side. The wing, thigh and drum were juicy. Nihito ( virgin drinks ) were delicious . They have a 2 x 1 margaritas (very strong) from 11-5pm. The Brut was on the flat side(less carbonation). Looking forward to my next visitMore

I chose to come a day before my friend arrives. I ventured out in the neighborhood and arrived at Joe Jack's. Was promptly (and very courteously) greeted and ushered over to the bar, as I requested. It was a very comfortable experience. Hospitality was on...point and didn't feel fake. The bartenders were engaging and helpful. I had 2 different margaritas- a fresh passion fruit and a hibiscus. Both were outstanding with the passion fruit being my personal fav. Then, I tried the crispy brussel sprouts (app) and the shrimp and octopus cocktail. Delicious! Fresh! Super flavorful. The bartender asked if I would like some hot sauce-completely forgot to ask initially because I was enjoying it so much. I confirmed to the hot sauce and WOW it was powerful but DELICIOUS! Throughout my time there, I noticed alot of smiling and playfulness, and what seemed to be a genuine pleasantness from the staff, management, AND the other patrons. Fantastic atmosphere, drinks, and food for this single! Will most likely come back here a couple of more times this week with my friend!More

Great place for happy hour Mojitos. Very good service. The fish and chips is supposed to be the best in town. Whoever said that has never had proper fish and chips.
