JoJo’s Shake Bar Detroit with Biggie Shakes opens September 24

JoJo's Shake Bar offers a selection of shakes.

Downtown Detroit will soon welcome a new place to find milkshakes, fries, and a light brunch.

JoJo’s Shake Bar Detroit’s first location is scheduled to open on September 24 in the Detroit area.

As its name suggests, JoJo’s Shake Bar is known for its shakes garnished with plenty of sweets, so it’s best to leave your diet at the door.

Inside will have several nods to Motor City musicians and sports figures, along with a trip to the ’80s and ’90s with retro arcade gaming tables. But the highlight is JoJo’s Biggie Shakes, which you can pair with potatoes loaded with cheese, bacon, and sour cream. Keeping its roots in Chicago, JoJo’s has also brought in a Chicago-style “Triple Dog Dare You” hot dog featuring three mini hot dogs with onions, tomatoes, relish, sports pick pepper, celery salt, and mustard. There’s also “Chicago Handshake,” an old-fashioned beer paired with a shot of Malort.

JoJo’s Milkshakes are $14 and are served with extra items like gummy candy, cotton candy, toffee, marshmallows, biscuits, and more. For example, there’s Girl Scout with Andes Mint Chocolate Shake, Roasted Marshmallows, Chocolate Biscuits, Chocolate Sable, and Double Chocolate Cake. They also offer half a dozen basic shakes.
