Won't be rushing back, got great food but paid far too much for it. A basic burger , cheese and garlic fried and a drink cost me about 14 €. Only because I was not fxmiliar with Kilkenny I made do with Eddie R, but not again.

“Irish Johnny Rockets”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2013

We stopped in here for milkshake... and honestly how bad can you screw that up. I can not speak for the rest of food. I can see why people complain about prices, they are little high for what you get, but a place like this is about the atmosphere, not just the food. You can get a burger and fries anywhere.

“Okay but expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2013 via mobile

We popped in here as we were visiting the shopping centre on holiday and it had started to rain; good time for lunch! The diner is a nice style in the 50s era with the staff dressed the same but we never saw a smile from any of them the whole time we were there. We ordered 2 wraps, 1 starter nachos, 1 garlic and cheese chip and 2 drinks. They came in small red baskets, were small and not very warm. However they tasted okay, the chips were lovely. A nice touch is the mini jukebox on your table that you can put 20c in and choose songs; to be honest this was the best bit of our time there. The meal was okay but a little expensive for what we got. Was okay, probably wouldnt eat there again.

“Disgraceful”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2013

Arrived today the 17th of April 2013 and were disgusted at what we were served...put into a space for 4 Max yet there were 5 of us...squashed as we're...we got three all day biker breakfasts....where do I start,runny eggs rock hard hash browns barely cooked rashers...the kids got hotdogs and the hot dog buns were hard(not toasted hard) but stale hard...hot dogs were not cooked in the inside and the waitress never even took the starters plates off the table as we received the mains ..she asked how were the meals we replied disgraceful she walked off and sent another over to charge us the extortionate price of €57.35........put us off a diner we always had high regards of.. BEWARE
