My favorite place in town for fresh red snapper! Fish and chips, burgers, etc. are all good at Joe Jack's!

At some point, every tourist who goes to PV goes to Joe Jacks. So be prepared to see someone you know from home. The locals only work there.
That being said, they serve what is, hands down, the BEST Whole Red Snapper in PV. Put on a bib, grab a margarita and get ready for the most wonderful fish you have ever had. But start with the Wedge Salad, to prepare your stomach.

Fish tacos were just ok, but their Octopus ceviche was the best. Food is good and at a reasonably priced. I totally recommend it.

This is the best restaurant in Puerto Vallarta - and if you're driving through on your way to a slightly nicer beach town I recommend you stop here for a meal! They have a delicious octopus ceviche (seriously try it) as well as great fried fish, curries and also some strong cocktails - try the pineapple mojito.

Just a quick walk from our property. Reservations recommended but not necessary. Small menu but all items are prepared to perfection. We have tried nearly the whole menu but continually order the Fish & Chips. The BEST FISH & CHIPS and WEDGE SALAD in the world, in our opinion. The tower burger, peppered steak, calamari steak, everything is amazing. Also try what ever is on special for the day!

It is our tradition to always go to Joe Jack's on our first night. Their fish tacos will melt in your mouth, if you haven't already filled up on their fresh guacamole and chips. The margarits and mojitos are delicious, and the ambiance is quaint and casual. It's our Vallarta dining "touchstone."

Consistently great food at a reasonable price. Just a short walk from the condo and well worth the wait if you find there is a wait.

Buying a part time local in this wonderful "crown jewel" of Mexico I'm a good to know if Puerto Vallarta is your next destination. Since, man cannot live on tacos alone. And sometimes you just want some comfort food, especially after a night of tequila. I personally am a big fan of Joe Jack's. I usually go for the fish soup or on Fridays there is the all you can eat fish n chips. Also something that is rarely done well in PV that is burger. Perhaps the best burgers in Puerto Vallarta are at Joe Jacks. Tony at the bar will keep you entertained while you wait for your table.

If you're hankering for a taste of back home, Joe Jack's is the place for you. For the most hungry souls, try their Friday special -- all you can eat fish special for around $15 (with all you an eat cole slaw and mushy peas)! Yum!
