    My husband and I have wanted to dine there for a while, but Covid threw off everything. So when I saw it as an option for restaurant week, we decided to go. We enjoyed our meal and the server was really nice and cute😁

    Very over priced, and Burger King could’ve served me a better burger. The shake, however was good. I got the threes company, the shake itself was great , but the delicacy toppings on the cup they could’ve kept. 84$ later, I am highly disappointed.

    Service was lacking; the shake add-one were inedible and had no distinct flavors. The baked hot chocolate brownie thing was a joke, as the brownie itself was just a cloyingly sweet confection. The Jojo fries tasted pretty good, save for the fact that other than the cheese on top, any cheese underneath was not even half melted, which was very offputting. After requesting silverware, I was given a plastic fork and metal knife. Overall, an overpriced kitschy spot.

    It was great except I picked this location because it said parking was available and I am in a boot due to a torn Achilles. Only to get there and be told there was no parking available. I had to find parking and work several blocks. Alt the was no handicap ramp which make this place not really an accessible place. However, everything else was amazing

    We were jammed into a tiny booth with a party of 6 when no one else was in the restaurant. I had made reservations a month in advance and when I inquired about other tables, I was told they were reserved.

    Let me start by waiter was very busy and he was only one. My main issue is that we went past 1.5 table time and were asked to leave. Which that would have been ok if the service was quicker. The waiter told us the wifi went down so the kitchen didnt get our order for a while after we placed it. No biggie! The poor waiter was working hard but had way to many tables. After our meal came we wanted to put in order for shakes which took a very long time to put in and to receive due to our waiter being so backed up. Again we knew he was alone and didnt care. The order to our shakes were wrong and even before they could fix it another staff member asked us to leave because we were past our time and they have long wait downstairs. We were not pleased that we had to leave. They took off the shakes and we did get a discount for our order going in so late but then had to rush and leave because you had a wait. I booked a rsvp before so we were not a walk in. It was upsetting that we couldn’t finish our shakes and had to leave when we were not abusing the time window you just had super slow service only having one waiter.

    Pros: the food and milkshakes were delicious! Cons: service wasn't the best and the restaurant is small. I really enjoy JoJo's Shake bar but the Naperville location is way better than the River North location.

    Food is very sub par. Service was terrible. Waited 10 minutes after food was delivered for plastic silverware. Had to track our server down for refills. Ordered 5 shakes and when they arrived at our table 2 of them were not what we ordered. Waited another 10 minutes for the right shakes to be brought out. We were excited to try this place, unfortunately it was nothing like they advertise on social media. We would not go back.

    We made a reservation to attend winterwonderland as listed — and noted the $10 fee per person. Looking forward to the experience with our large group. When we arrived, winter wonderland was not there - the lot empty and we only had choice for basic experience indoors. Poor advertising // bad info on open table.

    This was our first time at Jo Jo’s. My husband and I brought my 15 year old daughter and we all enjoyed it. My daughter said she could stay there all day watching the cartoons, listening to the music and enjoying the atmosphere. The food was good. The shakes were great! We definitely will be returning and letting everyone know they need to go.

    Prices are rediculous. Make the shakes smaller so people can actual eat the whole thing since you’re charging $14 for one. No gluten free options. Very disappointed.

    I paid for the winter wonderland experience which was 10.00 pp including a free hot chocolate. I went on a Monday which was not busy, the place smelled horrible, the waitress/staff were not enthusiastic or knowledgeable. They service was subpar and not an indicator that I’d ever go back. The waitress never offered our free hot chocolate, we ordered specialty shakes and when asked about our hot chocolate’s she said oh I forgot. Because we had already ordered shakes I asked if she can discount our bill as it was over 200.00, she said no I can’t. She made some weird excuse up and offered us the hot chocolates to go. I will never go back to this place. It’s way over priced, food was subpar and drinks were trash. I am sad I wasted my money on this place. If you want to be ripped off go for it!

    Honestly it was mediocre at best. Strawberry shake wasn’t even real strawberries. An artificial syrup that tasted medicinal. Service was slow. Appetizer came at the same time as lunch. 30 minutes for a cocktail! Would not return.

    Menu is fast casual at inflated prices. Shakes looked good. I wouldn’t know since they never brought mine and never came to the table to make sure we got everything in our order. Had to walk up to the bar to even get the check and despite mentioning that we didn’t receive items in our order, they were still on the check and I had to mention it again. Service is a real issue. I will likely not be returning
