Mojo Number 4 is an urban barbecue and whiskey bar in the historic Avondale section of Jacksonville. Just one of four in this chain around town, each Mojo has a different name and a slightly different look, though their brand of Southern-style barbecue stays relatively true to form. Known for its huge portions and warm, inviting ambience, Mojo pushes entrées like the BBQ Blues Burger, topped with bacon, Mojo BBQ sauce and a blend of cheeses, while pit-smoked chicken and chopped brisket sandwich remain true classics. Everything is made from scratch here, including the barbecue sauce, while the walls are equally heartfelt. Full of funky blues artist’s photos and assorted paraphernalia, Mojo Number 4 skips the chivalry and heads straight for the stomach, with warm plates of great Jacksonville barbecue.
