“MMMMMMMMMMMMMM! But Make Reservations!”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

If you don't have reservations, you can expecct a long wait! This place is a hole in the wall-looks like an old elks club! But...WOW! I discovered it 30 years ago, and finally got my husband there. He wants to move closer so he can have it weekly! The prices is amainlgy low, for a enormous cut of meat. The filet is sooooo buttery and melts in your mouth. I got the regular cut and had enought for breakfaast and lunch the next day! I also love the beans.

“A must go to!!!”
Reviewed June 29, 2014 via mobile

Reservations are a must. We were there on a Wednesday night and place was packed. The best Lamb Chops ever. 3 large with all the fixings for $21.00!! Hubby loves the large Spencer (rib eye). Everything is cooked to perfection. This is a must go to place when we are in town visiting family.

“Big, Big, and great steaks”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

If you are super hungry for good steaks, Jocko's is the place. Ordered the prime rib, had enough for three meals. I was impressed that the steak was tender for the size, since they had to make sure that it was cooked. I ordered it medium rare, and that is what I got, and it was great.

I would advise you to make reservations, or else you will be waiting for an hour for seating. It is definitely worth it.

“Too long to wait, poor customer service. ”
Reviewed June 23, 2014 via mobile

We were staying nearby for golf tournament in the area. Told this place has great steaks but the atmosphere is dumpy. It was a dump indeed. We walked over from our hotel. The host at the door said it would be a 2 to 3 hour wait. Forget it! It was crowded and loud. No meal is worth that long a wait. We left and don't plan to return.

“Come here only if you love a good steak!”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

Do not come to Jocko's if you are looking for a quiet, romantic getaway. If you love steak, you will love Jocko's. Without looking at the menu, I order the small spencer. It is the thickest, most juicy piece of meat you'll ever see. It always comes home with me and I can easily get two more meals from it.
On Wednesdays they have a turkey dinner special. If you want it, be sure to reserve it ahead of time. Never expect to come in that day there will be any left over. It is a complete, delicious turkey dinner.
