If want to enjoy the delicious burger in Taupo, you have to go in PAULY'S DINER They served best burgers offer a combination of tastes and textures – sweet, sour, salt – with a bit of crunch. Their patty has juicy, the bun soft but sturdy, and you want the meat/bun/accompaniment ratio to be even from first to last bite. Then you have to go PAULY'S DINER.

It's just not as good re taste as it was under old ownership. I dont know why, but it was just greasy in a bad way. I know that sounds weird as it's a burger bar , and it's that style, but are they now using different oil, or what. Just leaves that yuk after taste. Chips also just would be nice to be crispy and not limp like they were. A smile from the staff doesn't hurt either, but that seemed too hard. I hate to write an average review, but I only feel it's fair to give feedback.

I'm a huge burger fan and have had them from all over the country, these guys have the best southern fried chicken burger I have ever had! I went for the double honey mustard option! Definitely recommended!

Simple straightforward excellent smash burger. Good sized patty, great cheese and toppings. This will be a must-do stop in all our future Taupo visits.

We made an impromptu visit to Pauly's after a walk round Taupo being drawn by the smell of something delicious while looking for lunch. The service at Pauly's was excellent and we were treated to some freshly made wonderful burgers and one of the delicious baskets of chicken. We could tell the team knew what they doing and the results were some of the best burgers we'd had for a long while (and we eat a lot of burgers!). Great fries and some great sauce options.
