Awesome Vietnamese pork dishes. Loco joes has great burgers and tacos. A great little pub with friendly wait staff and plenty of beverage options. Wonderfully varied menu but it's hard for me to break away from the " Saigon Special".

I have been here a dozen times! I like the feel and the beer selection. This place is always busy. I like the ever changing beer selections. The food is good and the atmosphere is great. I always sit at the bar and feel welcome.

Casual atmosphere, great beer selection, excellent service...always friendly, welcoming, got their act together. Food is good, reasonably priced. Small place so can't always get in. Give it a try if you haven't done so.

Colorful, small local bar and grill. Friendly staff. We tried the pulled pork and cheeseburger, nothing special, typical bar food.

Love the combination of typical pub fare with Vietnamese specials and some blended options. Interesting selection of local, national, and international brews.

What can we say about a restaurant that serve an evening meal 10 minutes before closing and not rushing you out past the closing time? We frequent Loco Jo's because the unusual fusion between Asian and American cuisine makes your taste buds tingle with excitement. The friendly staff enlivens the experience. While seating is limited, it is inviting, well worth... More

My family and I couldn't find a place to eat. We stumbled on this place. Whenever I let my kids pick what we want to they say Mexican and Chinese. So this was the perfect. Overall it was amazing. Great food great service

Best. Fish. Tacos. When a restaurant is sub par, we say, "I'd rather being eating fish tacos at loco jo's!"

Most unwelcome reception ever. Lunch visit. Mates with 2 fish cod, fries and Cole slaw. Smallest portion of fries ever presented. Charged for water with lunch. Manager commenting on lack of interest in any review comments. Will not return. Obviously management unconcerned about building repeat business. Must only want tourist for one time shot.
