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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Decent food for the prices charged and a place with the potential to go even further in the rankings. Staff are friendly and good value meal deals.

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

Sad to see, this place has really gone down hill. They've pumped up their prices, decreased sizes and to add insult to injury they are mixing up orders and serving burned AND undercooked food all at the same time.

I don't understand how it can be one of the first restaurants in Cork. It is not much better than Mc Donald or Burger King. Maybe because prices are low?

Food is a very good price the deal for €10. Portions are way way too big and the food is drenched in oil, the food is overly greasy and does not make you feel well. I would recommend a mint milkshake
