Jo-Jo's will be closing soon as rumours said so I thought a final review would be nice before they move to the new venue at West End. It will be moving after being in the same location for 37 years owned by Stefan, the same owner as Stefan Salon. This place has always offered many diners various dining options from Modern Australian to Italian to Asian to Mediterranean.

'Sirloin Special' (AUDR18.5) was a 200g Beef city platinum MSA grain fed from Darling Downs region served with fresh salad, steaming baked potato with sour cream. Add a garlic and chilli prawns or USA pork BBQ ribs if you prefer your meat served with a topper.

Choosing Mushroom sauce is always somewhat safe, also for Pepper. However the Mushroom sauce here seemed to be creamier than the usual, though the creamy had a good consistency and simply just needed more mushroom. Yes, there were chunks of mushrooms in the sauce pot but in the sauce itself, it seemed to have had much more cream and not much mushroom. For those who do prefer a not so strong mushroom taste, then you would enjoy the sauce. But for those who do prefer a strong mushroom taste, you may feel that it was cream with a hint of mushroom.

The beef sirloin was cooked to what we wanted, juicy and nicely char grilled. The steamed potato was okay, topped with a dollop of sour cream but was not seasoned overall. The fresh salad had a mix of greens, red onions and tomatoes with a drizzle of creamy sauce.

'Big Brissy Burger' (AUD$18.5) was a combination of Wagyu beef patty, melted cheese, pickles, bacon, tomato, melted cheese, cos lettuce, aioli, caramelised onion and chilli jam relish on a freshly toasted brioche bun. The brioche bun looked slightly dry when it first arrived on the table and it seemed to not have been sliced in half properly as the top bun was much more thinner than the bottom. However, I did feel that it worked as no one likes a soggy bottom bun as you always want the juices of the beef patty and the sauce all dribble down without ruining the bottom bun.

Add in a side of chips for AUD$3.5 for that extra crunch and to accompany your burger. The chips were fried well and perfect served with a side of aioli sauce.
