Great for breakfast

I have had several breakfasts here, and never been disappointed. Not to new but kind has its own appeal. I remember years ago, used to be a bar. Food was hot tastey and service was prompt if a little stiff... I would recommend you try their breakfasts. I have not eaten lunch so can't comment it... read more

I was staying at the nearby gold resort for a tournament and didn't feel like dishing out $36 for breakfast for my son and I. This is especially since I know my son would eat only one waffle and be full. Found this great little gem and had a great omelet. Was it the best omelet I ever had? No!... More

The breakfast here was ok- the pricing is the same as Shea's up the street which is so much better - the omelet here was flat-nice service

Nice little place and priced right. The place has history. Dates back to the Boardwalk Empire days. Food was good and the place even has its celebrity sighting with Eric Clapton eating here on more than one time. Jerry Ehrlich from the Great City of Philadelphia

We are here often for breakfast, it's always good. It's definitely no frills and there are a group of old men discussing politics but if you want a good cheap breakfast, head to JoJo's.

Comfortable dining and friendly staff. Food is not gourmet, but it is pretty good and has good value. I don't know what else to say, but I'm supposed to say 50 words to submit this review.

My husband and I love trying small quaint local eateries throughout the state this one was bad from hello. Actually no one even greeted us, a man sitting at the counter said to take a seat. It took quite sometime to be acknowledged and offered coffee, when the coffee was brought we were given a small ration of creamers which... More

We had breakfast at JoJo's this morning. The waitress was friendly and the food was delicious. The corned beef hash was cooked perfectly. This is the perfect breakfast stop.
