Best chips in the west! Amazingly able to cater for coeliac at any time but they even have a dedicated Gluten Free day… Fresh, Tasty food and excellent service. With food like this being a coeliac is easy!

“Awesome Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2014

Gluten Free Saturday is the best. You don't notice a difference. Best fish and chips in town. Chicken wings and onion rings are delicious!
I would highly recommend to any Coeliac's and non-Coeliac's. The food is brilliant and very high standard. The service is very good.
The whole experience is 10/10.

After reading reviews online, decided to try for ourselves. Definitely worth seeking out. Excellent fish & chips! Great service. All cooked perfectly & fresh to order. Many ingredients sourced locally. Good prices. Will visit again!

“Just a little disappointed...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2013

Having first experienced Jack Jordans at the Volvo Ocean Race some time ago, we thought fish and chips could not get better. It was competing with McDonaghs of Galway, traditionally the best fish and chips facility in Galway ... indeed in the west. But having gone to the take away outlet a couple of times since, the quality is just not what was on offer at the Volvo Ocean Race. What is on offer is fine, entirely acceptable as a fast food outlet, but just nothing as good as our first experience and no longer does it compete with McDonaghs for us.

Perfectly ok fast food; just not special.
