Mojo Grill is a must-visit restaurant in Ocala

The Mojo Grill and Catering Company, which has multiple locations throughout Marion, Lake and Sumter counties, is a must-visit restaurant in Ocala.

Both of the company’s Ocala locations on East Silver Springs Boulevard and 17th Street are inviting and filled with soulfully and musically inclined decorations.

At each location, a full drum set is mounted upside down to the ceiling, and the walls are covered with blue paint, musical memorabilia and general flare.

Even more eclectic than the decorations is the menu at Mojo’s. There is an emphasis on Hispanic favorites, including roasted pork and empanadas, but the menu also features a variety of American, Caribbean and Cajun flavors.

Empanadas, rice, beans, and sweet plantains.
