The place is great in a fantastic location, Aksarben Village. For those of you uninitiated, "Aksarben" is Nebraska spelled backwards. There was a Saturday night concert on the green, the whole place buzzing with activities. Mojo's was steadily busy but not overly so that we got a table quickly. A very nice young man waited on us and beers were procured all around as the menu was perused. They have a full range of tasty treats including the standards burgers and wings but they also had a smoked NY Strip. I passed for tonight and I ordered a 3 meat plate to try a few things. Matt did also. The ladies had sandwiches. My wife had a Cuban Pork and Lori had brisket.
Everything was OK. Just OK. I had smoked brisket, chicken and ribs. There were 4 baby back ribs that were a little tough and the brisket was a bit chewy also. The chicken had great smokey flavor reminding me of my Grandpa Sam's smoked chicken in the backyard at 19th and N Street. The sides I choose, beans and potato salad were...OK. I would not seek this place out for food but would stop there again. My platter was $20. Brenda enjoyed her Cuban Pork sandwich for $9. It was a pleasant experience but not sure that I crave it.
