“Fish & Chips as it Shoule Be”
Reviewed 26 March 2012

Stopped by Jiggers one day after being tipped to it by the front desk staff at our vacation rental and were not disappointed. Once each holiday we allow ourselves to indulge in Fish & Chips and this was among the best we've had.

Jiggers is open only if there has been fresh fish caught that day, and only as long as the fish they've purchased that morning lasts. Nothing frozen here, including the freshly made French Fries. Fish was sublime, just as it should be with a light flavour and a light but crispy batter. Portions were very generous and the 2-person team dealt with orders in a very timely manner.

We'll go back the next time we're there, no doubt about that. A real find and for Fish & Chip lovers, likely the best you'll find in either Ucluelet or Tofino. For us, this rivals Red Fish Blue Fish in Victoria.

“The best we've ever had”
Reviewed 20 March 2012

Having been a fish and chip connoisseur for over 60 years, I can say with out a doubt that Jiggers has the best Fish&Chips in the world. Great service. Clean kitchen, from what we could see. Freshest ingredients. A great batter. Cooked to perfection. I've never had better. I hope to get back there in 2012

“Cool truck, great food”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

I had a great beef burger, and the wife said it was the best fish burger she'd ever had. We live on the south coast, so we know our fish, and this was good. Will try the fish and chips next time. Bonus: truck is parked next to the cold beer store.

“Halibut and Chips with a smile”
Reviewed 8 February 2012

Where else can every customer walk away with good food along with a friendly smile? Shane and Shelley make everyone, tourist or local, feel like family! Did I mention they make a great halibut and chips?
