Showed up there last night about 20 minutes before closing time. The perturbed staff made it abundantly obvious that they had somewhere else to be and were quite curt. Tacos were pretty good but our group of 7 first timers won't be heading back anytime soon. Too many good restaurants in South Florida to put up with that malarkey.

IF UR IN LBS SPEND UR $$$ SOMEWHERE ELSE. Staff and menus need to explain food better. Steak tacos were smoked and dry. The other 2 were smoked and this was not explained. The food was left on the plate and staff didn't care to ask if everything was ok. There were 20 people in this place and it took 45 mins for food to arrive with 6 people working behind the counter; BTW it's a self serve restaurant. I watch staff giving 8 people a hard time about pushing tables together. They eventually got tired of waiting for the one large table and left. DON'T WASTE UR TIME AND BE SUSPECT OF THE GOOD REVIEWS. ....I smell owner self redemption.

this little hole in the wall is outstanding. They have many varieties of creative, fresh, tacos and you will want to go back over and over. There was not a thing wrong with the food. All ingredients were fresh and the varieties of tacos showed that someone here really knows their stuff. Don't look for a huge menu with many different things. Come here for tacos....great tacos.

This is not your regular Taco bar! Chef/Owner "JoJo" brings to Lauderdale-By-The-Sea a wealth of knowledge about food - awesome blend of flavors and a menu that is full of delicious surprises. Everything that we have experienced at JoJo's continually reinforces a desire to come back and try something new. We will always make a point to bring our out of town guests here for a casual yet phenomenal food experience I am happy to have JoJo's just walking distance from where I live year round. The food is to die for, the staff is warm & friendly - NOT TO BE MISSED BY VISITORS & LOCALS!!!

Tina,
I happened to be dining at JoJo's Tacos the night you and your party came in. My wife and I were sitting near the center of the bar area. What you wrote in your review in not what I saw and heard.
When your party came in,(party of 7, including 4 women with 3 small children), one of you asked if staff could put 2 of the 3 large tables together, you were at that time informed that was not possible due to limited seating at the only 3 tables for parties of 4 or more. Your party then proceeded to move the tables themselves. These tables are very heavy and difficult to move, Also seating at these 3 tables is 4 chairs and a large bench which would have easily accommodated your party. When the Chef saw what you were up to he asked you not to move these 200 pound tables because it would scratch up the painted floor. That's when it got ugly! Someone in your party got nasty and loud about what you folks wanted, you were politely asked by the owner several times not to move the tables. NO ONE YELLED AT YOUR GROUP AT ANY TIME! As you all left I did here someone in your party state that they would be writing a bad review of the restaurant. I do not understand a bad review when you are the problem and you did not eat or order anything. By the way, this place has the best food in Lauderdale by the Sea, you folks really missed out.
