Jojo's has a cool aesthetic and good vibe. Jojo's pit is a nice place to hang out and it does have a decent bar so that's a plus. The food's decent but if you're looking for a truly authentic 'jerk' experience you'll have to find another jerk pit.

You have to find it. - off Waterloo Road in what looks like a heavy equipment yard by a traffic lights. And JoJos is sort of round the back at the end. Jamaica style bamboo and wood place with the bar and some eating covered over. Good selection of menu choices - many of it, of course, involving Jerk. All... More

The atmosphere is nice and there is a wide choice of jerk meats but the taste isnot exceptional. If you dont want to stand beside a jerk pan man and would rather sit in a cosy place then JoJo's will do.

Once you find this hidden place, it has great food and reasonable prices. very clean and good service. You will see the sign on the road and pull into a large empty lot. You see a food stall in front that, at first glance, is mistaken for Jo Jo's...keeping going all the way to the back and you see the... More

A group of us went (about 9) with a varied menu, ribs, fish, jerk lamb sausage, philly cheese steak, peas soup. All the food was well presented and according to everyone, quite acceptable in taste. The server (did not catch his name) was very attentive. The tables with their 'barrel seats' wasn't so comfortable for the group of our size.... More

My husband and I went here after seeing and hearing about this place for months! Our waitress was so helpful and our food came promptly! The grilled lamb was divine but the ribs were out of this world!! The side dishes were excellent! If you are hankering for some succulent ribs or some great specialty dishes with some great music...

Thursday night is Karaoke night at JoJos. It's outside but under cover with a chilled, relaxed and fun atmosphere. It's not expensive either. I would recommend the Winston cocktail but go light on the ice. Great service by a waiter also called Winston. The music stated around 8.30pm but tables do fill up. Worth a visit. PS The photos were... More
