Go for the atmosphere, stay for the boom boom cauliflower! As a visitor felt slightly out of place on a Friday night with all the locals hanging out. was very crowded by 6pm!

This is a tiny place with a couple of outdoor tables, four indoor tables, and a bar for eating and drinking. It is worth the wait to eat excellent fish tacos.

This place looks more like a bar and the server was not friendly at all we gave our name and then left and went to have pizza since we didn't like the look of this place. Although the menu looked OK and reasonable prices.

Although anytime is a great time at loco Jo's ... we love lunch. Great local place that draws you back for the food and the staff. Their food is fabulous and their atmosphere is one of always seeing someone you know ... because of how good their food is. Their cheeseburgers call my name unless they have fresh tuna tacos....

This is a great place for a casual dinner. Friendly staff, great food makes this a popular eatery in Southport. I had the Saigon Bowl and loved it. Three others in my group enjoyed their meals as well. A must visit place if you're in town.

My wife and I went for lunch and the place never disappoints. We got a cheeseburger and shrimp tacos. The food is great and the people are very friendly. This is the kind of place - after it opens in the morning a steady stream of people just keep coming and going, a few tourists - but it's a place... More

My husband and I were in Southport to have lunch at Fishy Fishy. We arrived at the restaurant to find it was closed for renovations. A quick Google search found is this green of a restaurant.
