If you come down to Steveston looking for our famous fish n’ chips look no further than Pajo’s! Pajo’s was founded in 1985 by Patricia Branch and Joan Whettlaufer with the idea of having a stand right in the centre of the famous Steveston Wharf serving the best fish n’ chips around! You can find Pajo’s right in the middle of the Wharf or in Steveston’s Garry Point Park. Both locations serve the best food around and the locations are great for relaxing and enjoying the beautiful Steveston scenery. What can you get exactly at Pajo’s? So much more than your ordinary fish n’ chips that’s for sure. Come down to Pajo’s to enjoy all sizes of Halibut, Cod or Salmon fish n’ chips as well as veggie burgers, mushroom burger, tuna burgers, breakfast buns, hot dogs, veggie dogs, shrimp skewers and even crab cakes! You really get the best of everything when you visit Pajo’s.
