Jocko's Steak House

We were on a road trip with some friends. We stopped at Jocko’s. The wait was horrible. We waited over 2 hours. But let me tell you the wait was worth it. 3 of us had the pork ribs one had steak. I don’t remember the cut. We almost fainted when they brought out the ribs. 2 layers of ribs. Probable 12- 14 ribs. They were awesome. The smokie flavor was not too strong. Also on the plate was a baked potato. We also got garlic bread. They also brought beans, and a relish plate. They meat was nice and tender. As for the steak. OMG! It was at least 3-4 inches think and you could cut it with a fork. The prices were great too. All in all it was a fantastic dinner, except for the wait. We asked for a to go box for the ribs. Luckily we had a cooler with us. We had enough left overs to eat a complete dinner for the 4 of us the next evening and still had ribs left over.

I had the pork ribs.

Very good. Lots of meat!

I have been eating at Jocko's since the 1950's. Had my wedding reception at the current location in 1966. Eat there as often as I can and love the food. The large spencer is always great. Best pop for your money. My wife likes the…
