Part of reliving the Best of Times & Great History in America would be to honor the past with an Authentic Replica. Back then, it was not only The Wurlitzer 'Bubbler' Jukebox in the corner but, the cars in the parking lot, the girls in their short-shorts on roller skates, the overuse of stainless steel or chrome and Art Deco Colored Counter Stools & Booths but, most importantly.. The Food. Eddie Rocket's makes a very good attempt but, doesn't quite hit the mark. We stopped and looked in the Killarney location and then stopped for lunch in their Limerick Rd. Shop because it is indeed 'All-American', 'cute' and decorated to the Max.
We understood the lack of an expensive, original $12,000 Wurlitzer 45 rpm Jukebox, though they did have excellent, reproduction, wall-mounted Jukebox Remote Units. And, they DID have the correct Girls in Uniform, Soda Jerk, limited Neon, Shakes/ Malts, and Over-sized Burgers...they almost had us fooled - However, the Burgers lacked much of any taste..... and the Fries were sprinkled with Paprika (?) Sadly, I'm old enough to have lived through the late 50's and all of the 60's / 70's and don't EVER remember paprika on ANY Fries in America. I came to the conclusion it might be because the beef from the American Cows tastes better, because they were fed steroids and chemically grown corn...but, how they could conceive the use of Paprika.....? Maybe its just an Irish Thing?
The good news about constructive criticism is - it can be fixed: They should Keep Trying- or fly me back in to help:) Thank you for your effort.
