In visiting family in the Navy, we came here for dinner one night, and followed up with Lunch 2 days later. Both meals were very good, service was nice. Place is loud, so if looking for something quiet, this ain't it. But for a quick bite, its good. The Orange Crush here is good, and if you don't know what... More

This was my second visit because I felt they deserved a second chance. I ordered a chicken sandwich on the first visit and it was as thick as a slice of bacon. Second time I ordered a bacon cheeseburger, and they put burnt bacon on the burger. The bacon was horrible and the 1/3lb burger was not even a 1/4lb,no... More

The food and service at Mojo Bones is amazing! I suggest the corn bread to share with the table. I also had the wings and they were spectacular! Lightly breaded and very meaty (every sauce was delicious). Everyone enjoyed their BBQ meal. If you like live music there's a stage and you could look up the schedule as well. I... More

I would like to stop by there one time after work to enjoy the welcoming atmosphere . The service was great the food was good and I was not disappointed. Next time I'm in town I... More

Found this place when I was stationed in Norfolk. My husband and I went to this place when I was out-processing in May 2015. Was very quiet one lunch-dinner afternoon and hubby and I wanted some BBQ. We ordered and while it was delicious with the sauces that were available, I felt that it wasn't enough food for the price... More

Stopped in for a few beers with friends and I decided to try the alligator tail. While it was pricey it was pretty good. The decor was fun and the bbq smell was yummy. I will go back and try the bbq.

We've been several times to listen to the Michael Clark Band and as always, they're great. The food is average, but the drinks were cold and I never felt they were watered down, which is good.

Got their almost famous sandwich. A brisket sandwich. With sweet potato fries. The fries came out super hot and fresh and were perfect. The brisket was good too. The texas toast kinda dried out the sandwich but I threw some jalapeño hot sauce on it and it was perfect. 1 star off because im not a fan of the loud... More

I have been here a couple of times before but the experience was different. In the spirit of full disclosure, I do not eat pork or beef. On the other hand, I want the place to prosper and I enjoy many BarBQ restaurants. Okay, I was annoyed that they portion controlled ketchup and they offer fries with their plates. They... More

My husband and I went here for Open Mic night (Thursday). We got there early just in time for the acts to start. The crowd was an uneven mix...mostly twenty somethings with a sprinkle of 30's and up. People were dressed very casual. One chick had on a t-shirt, workout leggings, and flip flops. No need to "dress up" for... More
