The food is so so good, my favourite fast food/chipper. A family favourite. They have the best chicken strips. Service is great and quick.

1st time customer recently. Had the nicest garlic, cheese & chip in my life. The chips were skin on and so fresh. Will definitely return to sample some of the other menu items.

Gone downhill a lot in recent years. Chips are not great, burgers are nothing special either. Fish is good and cheese& onion pies excellent. Wish they got the basic right though.

Hands down the best chipper in cork. Way better than lennox's or KC's. Potato pies and cheese and onion pies are unreal. Breast and bun is savage. I love going to this place after a night out for hangover food.
