“Tasty, delicious, perfect, succulent ribs!”
Reviewed 22 November 2013 via mobile

I'm a local girl living in paihia and Jimmy Jacks is DEFINITELY my favourite restaurant to dine in.... My favourite dish would have to be the ribs. My tummy is rumbling just thinking about them. They are sooo good and the meat is so tender and I love the sauce they use. I highly recommend ribs, fries and also the marinated chicken wings :-) great place, wonderful atmosphere and a 10/10 place to eat!

“Awesome ribs, great value!”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

We stopped in here about 9pm on a quiet weeknight in Paihia. We didn't expect anywhere to be open so we were pleasantly surprised that Jimmy Jack's was full of people and they had a $5 special of chicken wings with any ribs meal. We took full advantage of this and had a big meal of ribs and chicken for a very reasonable price. Our server was so helpful and charming that we had to leave a tip (not customary in NZ). We love ribs and consider these to be some of the best we've had. Would definitely return on my next trip to Paihia!

It's a place for people in the twenties and thirties, nice to get ribs and burgers. We tried the ribs and the were really good. Huge huge portions at reasonable prices.
