Excellent Food & Management 9/10/2011

Hey, this place is awesome. I had a bad experience with a bartender at Daddy Mojo's recently, even though I was a regular at breakfast and a local. As I promised the woman I wrote negative online reviews (my first ever) and the owner got back to me same day. I dropped in today and spoke with the gentleman and he was extremely friendly and clearly cares a lot about his business. He spoke with the woman. I did not realize this was such a family establishment and regret not having taken down my bad review sooner. Good sushi and good breakfast!! more

Overpriced and very bland 1/19/2009

Sooo, i ventured out today on my lunch break to try something new and am not very happy with the results. Other than making it yourself, southern cooking is very hard to duplicate and Daddy Mojo's failed in their attemp. The hush puppies would have been OK flavorwise but were way over cookad and tasted like 2 week old fryer oil. The Gumbo portion was extremely small for the almost $12.00 price tag and with out the hot sauce I frantically searched for once returning to my office(I ordered togo, which by the way is $.50 extra per item....) was extremely lacking in flavor and crawfish tails. All in all, after waiting almost 40 minutes for my order I was very dis-appointed and will never return. Maybe they make a stiff drink................ Pros: Didn't find any...... Cons: Too many too list..... more

Hate it 9/24/2008

I live quite close to this restaurant, and I absolutly despise it. Once me and a close friend went there, and she got sick after we left. Pros: Can't think of any. Cons: Everything. more

If you're looking for the closest thing to a New Orleans style restaurant in PDX, this is the place. 2/2/2008

My girlfriend and I moved up here to PDX from New Orleans after hurricane Katrina. Occasionally homesick, we tried to find a few places around here to get some southern comfort food. Of all the places we've tried, Daddy Mojo's is the closest thing to what we had back home. more

Disaster 11/1/2005

We wandered in here hungry on a Friday night. Misled by Citysearch, we had read that it was good. I see now that it has changed hands. I guess that explains it. We waited an hour for our food, including the crawfish tail appetizer. The gumbo was bland at best. The crawfish were inedible. We left with a bad taste in our mouths. The service did what they could to make up for it, and we were not charged for the tails, but we'll never get the time back. Pros: Neat old pictures. Cons: Long wait, for, bad food. more

Lousy 10/2/2005

I don't know how that reviewer could claim that this place is ""about the food"". We were the only group in the restaurant while a few patrons drank in the bar, yet we were ignored for most of our 2 hour dinner. The food is bland, with the lone exception being when the dishes are overly sweet. The citysearch review mentions the praline chicken being on the ""sweet side"". Try being on the dessert side, it tasted like it was smothered with maple syrup. And the sweet potato corn cakes, which sounded great, tasted like mush in extra sweet raspberry vinegar. Don't waste your time with this place if you're a discerning eater. If you're a fan of Cajun, just head a few blocks up to Acadia, or try Lagniappe or Bernie's over on Alberta. Pros: ?? Cons: service, food, ambience more

Disappointing -- did the mojo up and go? 10/1/2005

I have no idea why this place is rated so highly. Our group of four were the only ones in the restaurant, and it still took forever for us to get our food! And while the plates looked like they might contain tasty Cajun dishes, everyone remarked on how bland (for the gumbo and red beans/rice) or oddly sweet (for the chicken) the food was. It appears that the owners recently swapped the restaurant and bar sections of the space, leaving the restaurant off in a small, hastily decorated corner. I can only imagine that this means they don't expect to make a lot of money from the restaurant. I guess I can see why. Pros: Not crowded, Amusing menu typos? Cons: Slow service, Bland food, Eerie atmosphere more

Used to Be GOOD? New Owner BAD 4/30/2005

I used to eat here when the big bald guy owned the place. The food was good and authentic. I've been gone since last August and was disappointed when I came in and ate here last week. The menu changed, the food changed, the people changed... Then I found the owner sold ""due to health"" reasons. Makes me sick that something good got started and then somebody else comes in and screws with it. Save your time and money. If you want southern food go somewhere else. Tell the new owner to make it Asian... stick with something you know dude. Pros: good neighborhood, nice name Cons: no longer southern, emphasis on lottery more

not what it says it is 3/21/2005

they say southern it is no way near any of what they say it is we were quickly seated and ignored finally when we did get our food we were ignored again more

Very disappointing 2/7/2005

We were there on a Saturday night, and we were the only patrons in the entire place. The service was suprisingly slow, considering our being the only customers. The food was bland. The only bright spot was dessert, an amaretto mousse-type thing that was silky and smooth. Go down the street 2 blocks to Acadia and try their cajun fare - it's the real thing! Pros: Inexpensive, Not crowded Cons: Bland food, Slow Service more

Daddy Mojo's Review 9/18/2004

This little neighborhood cafe is not anything to look at from the outide but the food is excellent. Good ole Southern Cooking. Country Fried Steak, Fried Okra, Grits....Yummy. If you ask for the grits, you may want to ask for them to be a moist, otherwise they tend to be very dry. Pros: Excellent Food, Good Service, Good value more

good mojo 5/19/2004

Nothing fancy: but the meals are good & reasonably priced. i've been here twice, both times with people who are kind of fussy about their food, and they both went away happy and said they'd be willing to come back . Owner & waitstaff are amiable and attentive. Decor includes Cool B/W photographs of southern performers. Glad to hve this restaurant in my neighborhood-- and they've just added karaoke, tues-sat. My-te-fine. Pros: good/friendly service, inexpensive, tasty eats Cons: , limited seating more

Disappointing 3/13/2004

I am also from the South and found this place to be disappointing. My ribs were so dry that they were hard to chew and my slaw was tasteless. I won't be eating here again. Pros: can smoke in bar, location, nice bathroom Cons: , street parking, cheap more

Best Southern I've Had In Portland 3/10/2004

I grew up in the South and this place is the real deal. Meatloaf sammiches, shrimp or oyster po'boys, and those kick butt burgers with the buns they make themselves, and Gumbo... Don't forget the Gumbo mmmmm! Pros: service, price, karaoke more

Fun cafe, friendly staff 2/19/2004

Fun spot to grab lunch with a distinctive Southern flavor. Leans a bit on the New Orleans/Creole/Cajun side, but not exclusive. Hush puppies, sammiches and great desserts. We really enjoyed the home made food, presentation and the charm of the spot. Very relaxed feel. Looking forward to checking out the bar some night too. Great prices for lunch. Pros: food, staff, price more

Two Fer Tuesdays / Friday special 12/30/2003

Tuesday nights are the time to check out Mojo's Bar. A fabulous way to start out the night and get a deal on drinks. Also, Mojo's daily specials are packed with flavor. Friday's shrimp special is incredible and mouth watering. Shuck your shrimp on top of newspaper, right at your table. Pros: friendly service, good food / specials, good food selection Cons: improving look more

    This place has an odd set-up: There's a prep station next to the entrance, an accumulation of neon beer signs, poker machines and ATM that separate the restaurant and lounge. But...
