Stopped on the way through Taupo at Paulys. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the food was superb for a relatively low price. Highly recommend the cheeseburger and southern fried chicken!

Pauly's a fairly small place with limited seats, so not suitable for large groups. We ordered burgers and fried chicken - both tasted great and were of good value since the price was quite reasonable. Good place for a quick meal or take-out.

We read about this place in the travel guide. The burgers were so good that we had to come back the following day. The guys were very friendly.

Great delicious burger for the price, generous with the sauce and they give extra sauces if you want to add to your burger. Good place for a quick meal.

I have to admit that I am normally not the Burger type. Anyway, I just wanted a bite to eat and went to Pauly's (last but not least for fond memories of our beloved cat 'Pauly'). The good thing was that the Burgers didn't have...More
