2008-05-30george o' freddythis place ROX MY SOX OFF!!!!
2006-11-01DSM PDStay away from Loco Joe's. Lots of fights, display of weapons, and additional trouble every weekend. The city council has been asked to close this rip off place down due to all of the trouble.
2006-09-20Mike MRough, dirty & underage drinking. Even the staff looked scary. I would never recommend taking kids, even teens here. You can tell it is an owner absent location or he just doesn't care about the place.
2003-08-14adamOk first of all 90% of all the machines rip you off and the ones that don't just plain suck! You pay 2 bucks to get in and you get overpowered by people who bring in their young kids and let them run arround while they play pool. Place sucks i would rather go to chucky cheeses. Don't bother going!
2002-06-21Lil MykeThis arcade has only a few good games: House of the Dead, X-Men, Carn Evil, etc. Some of the games, their controls do not work! There is barely enough space to walk without a hindrance or two because of the million Crusin' USA games they have there. This place needs to be updated because its obsolete. The bar in the back is quite distracting, especially when people gape at you for having a good time. And every time I go there the owners kid goes up to people to puts a sad look of innoncence; basically he's asking for them for nickels!LOL I can't believe that!
2001-11-15MattYou pay $1.95 to get in, and then the games are anywhere from 0-6 nickels. There are a few games that are set on free play, including Moon Patrol here. Also have half a dozen pinball machines. A few of the games have bad controls (jumpy joysticks on Super Mario Bros., trackball on Centipede won't move down, etc.)
2000-06-28Tony P.You pay a few bucks to get in, and then every game is a nickel. The games here were in better condition than the east side location when I was there a few years ago.
