Consistently great food and service. I got fish tacos which were fresh, light and delicious! My partner got the red curry. Surprised to find such great international flavors in Southport. Well done!

My son and I both had burgers and they were awesome. My wife works in southport and she loves there food too. Very good restaurant that locals know is a place where you can go to consistently get really good food and service. Just wish I had the time to eat there more often.

Good food, fast and friendly service! Was unaware that it was wine and beer only. I don't drink either on a regular basis, so the bartender engaged me in conversation to find out what I like, low and behold she served me a wine that I absolutely loved. Will be going back every chance I get!

One of the best in Southport. Small in size but food is great and help wonderful. Spring wraps home made and go quick. Burgers, fish and all very good. We go often.

Small and intimate. Good bar with a great TV, several tables and outdoor tables in season. Service is extraordinary and the food is always more than good. Some very interesting special beers on draft. Folks of all ages and families too.

This place has the best boom boom cauliflower. It is kind of spicy not too hot. Also got the pulled port sandwich with grilled onions. It was great.

Best fish tacos ever! Lots of other good stuff, too. A happy, friendly place to have a beer and hang out for a bit!

We went here on the suggestion of friends, and were delighted with what we found. Loco Jo's is small and seating is limited, but the food and drink are excellent and definitely worth the wait. We started with an order of teriyaki chicken wings (great flavor!) and went on to entrees of fish and chips and a "basic" burger. Servings... More
