We pooped in for a late lunch and shared a full rib. It came with wedges and coleslaw and wow, so tasty and enjoyable. The roll of papertowel was certainly needed to clean up all that lovely sauce. The atmosphere was friendly, great background music was playing and the serving size was large, They seem to have specials each day and when next in beautiful Paihia, Jimmy Jacks will certainly be a port of call.

Arrived in Paihia after a non-stop journey from London. So our first meal was ribs and burgers in New Zealand. Really tasty food. Very good service thanks to an ex-Brit who just didn't go home

Great service and great staff. Very friendly. Fantastic food and even my 7 and 9 year old children loved the food. I can't say much more apart from this is a must visit and meal stop if you are up North.
