Papa Mojo’s Roadhouse in Durham

by | Aug 27, 2008 | Food & Drink

(Definitely have your sound turned way up when you click on the restaurant link, I think Riesling is still recovering.)

Eric had lunch at Papa Mojo’s (I was still in NY) during an interview back in June and he has been wanting to get back ever since. We met our friends for dinner on Monday night and stumbled upon a drink special, $2 pints! The waiter only listed three beers on tap, so I got the amber and Eric settled on the pale ale.

Now in an even better mood, I turned my attention to the menu… po’ boys, bbq, cornbread… mmm. Three of us got the Cochon de Lait (cajun bbq pork) and Eric spent the entire meal guarding his deliciously crispy fries; I managed to snag a few in between bites of my cornbread with tasso cream gravy.

The pork was very nice, grilled with a light smoke flavor, but the spicy dipping sauce is the best part. Equal parts sweet and hot, it complimented the crispy pork perfectly.

Apparently there is all sorts of live music going on during the weekends (with applicable cover charges), and that’s not really our thing, so perhaps we’ll stick with $2 pint nights. Dinner for two with beer was only $25 including tax and tip, tasty and inexpensive!
