Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Ordered a hot dog, chips, wings and a Coke Zero and I think it was roughly €15 euros if not less? Staff cope well in busy conditions. Wings were absolutely divine

My friends and I went for a casual milkshake after lunch as we decided that it wasn’t good enough for us to actually but the milkshakes are quite acceptable so we decided to stop for some we were seated after by a rude waiter after...another 10 minute wait we were asked what we’d like we ordered and after a half an hour the 4 milkshakes were nowhere to be seen one of my acquaintances asked the waiter had they forgotten he snapped at him rudely and said it’s ON THE WAY !!!! 20 minutes later milkshakes were looking even less likely to come at that point as he walked my friend once again reminded the waiter we had not yet received the milkshakes when we finally got them after an hour in total of waiting the lad who had complained milkshake was half empty and they were of lesser quality than previous if u are attending I suggest avoiding the Indian waiter (I am Indian myself )More

I found it strange that the menu had Coke Zero and Diet Coke and not Regular Coke, as those 2 taste horrible I had to order Fanta which while it is an ok drink I found it disappointing to have with a meal.

The tables were disgusting and were not wiped down. The place felt dirty and rundown and service was awful. I can’t fault the food too much but it the service and environment ruined it

Went here for lunch after a good 25 minutes no sign of food, had to leave hungry and return to work not without the management charging for a fanta and coke and no apology. Shocking service he had another 6 tickets on the go and...literally was cooking one order at a time.More

The cracked leather couches pair nicely with the frozen reheated food. If you're looking for a super cheap meal this place is good for you but personally i think i felt mank after having their food.

Food was brought out cold. Onion rings was all batter, sliver of onion. Don’t think the workers seen a disinfectant bottle in their life, dirt could be seen on the tables and chairs. Only good thing was the milkshake. Will not be returning👎🏼🤮.

I was rather disappointed with the whole experience. Waited a good half hour for our food to arrive. I ordered a chicken burger, cheese, bacon. Found the burger presentation very sloppy and extreme sauce overload. I ate a little of it but not a lot...as wasn't sure if it was chicken 🙄 my son ate half his cheeseburger as found it very salty. Won't be returning in a hurry and the prices omg 😕More

We called here for food one evening. It was very busy with lots of young people present. It is very American Diner style. I had Route 66 burger and combo fries and onion rings with a milkshake. The milkshake was so thick it could not...be drank even after asking it to be thinned. The onion rings were hard and unpleasant. The burger was average but with very stringy cheese. The chips were very nice. Staff were very pleasant. Toilets were clean.More

We decided to stop in here one day while feeling nostalgic for some standard American fare. The food was generally "Okay". It hit the spot but wasn't amazing. The cost is bit pricey for this type of fare -so, you can tell it caters to...tourists or people that don't really know any better. The atmosphere is the old-fashioned 50's diner set up with the booths and decor. I'd go back but would likely look for other options. The shakes were pretty good - we got them to-go as we walked back through Cork to the carpark.More
