“Terrific Destination”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2012

I've had lunch and dinner there in recent trips to Jacksonville, and have been thoroughly impressed by the nice menu selection, attentive service, cool atmosphere, and certainly by the perfectly-prepared BBQ. Everything has been delicious and great portions. Can't wait to go back to try more of what Mojo has to offer. My favorite restaurant in Florida right now.

“Laid-back, good price, excellent food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2012

Their whiskey selection is impressive even though I didn't sample any of it. I had the pulled chicken sandwich, macaroni and cheese, and sweet tea, which were all phenomenal. The mac n' cheese is out of this world - topped with bread crumbs, yummmm! I really liked the sweet sauce and the mojo sauce, which was kind of garlicky. Mixing them together was delicious! The price is affordable, the atmosphere is fun and relaxed. Definitely go if you are ever in town! Oh, also, our server was really great too!

“Impressive Selection and Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2012 via mobile

Fantastic selection of whiskey, including Flights of four half-ounce pours. Whiskies are offered in 1.25 and 2 oz pours and the wall looks great. Nice lighting and overall atmosphere, including tasty BBQ. If you like whiskey and you like BBQ...do 'em both together at No. 4. Recommend.

“Good Bar-B-Que, Great whiskey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2012

I think the food is as good as you will get anywhere. The sauce is better than passible and the meat has a good smoky flavor, as if the pitmaster was paying attention to what he was doing. When I don't feel like running the smoker this is a good place to go.

“Pretty good food, loud atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2012

In my day job as a residential contractor, I had been working near the Historic Avondale District in Jacksonville for the last half of the year. On days when the wind was right, we would often catch a whiff of lunch cooking at one of the many restaurants that line Riverside Avenue. Sometimes it was the sweet scent of smoking wood that teased our nostrils. I knew it came from Mojo #4, and one sunny Friday made a point to stop in for lunch. Like most establishments in the area, the facade of the restaurant is simple and straightforward, but it does include a covered outdoor dining area. We opted to sit inside, which by contrast was dark and noisy. A full bar lines one wall of the big dining room, but there are also a good number of regular tables throughout.

"Urban barbecue" refers more to the atmosphere of the restaurant than the style of cooking. The inside feels a little like a blues club, and tables are served by waiters. Although the menu has many southern/soul options besides barbecue, I wasn't too disappointed in ordering the North Carolina pork and dry rubbed spareribs.

It seemed like both meats spent a little time on a smoker but were finished in an oven. The pork was chopped fine and covered in the traditional vinegar and black pepper sauce, which was good but it overpowered any smokiness of the meat. The ribs were tender, and the well flavored rub took on a little smoke though the meat didn't get much. Sides of baked beans and macaroni and cheese were generously sized and both top notch. Along with a drink this lunch was over $12. It was worth the splurge once, and good enough I would probably return if it wasn't so loud. Overall the food was good quality, but you can probably find more authentic barbecue for less somewhere else.
