Oh Dear oh dear oh dear.....God!!!!........................What has happened to the burgers in here? I have eaten here occasionally over many many years as a local and I know this place very well ,this aint some one visit tourist review,I have visited here maybe 30-50 times over the years but I have to say it really used to do good burgers,alas no more.I went in here to review the food and wanted to give a decent review as i have enjoyed their bangers and mash stuff in the past but the burger was truly atrocious...............
lets start at the starter,I asked for Garlic bread with a cheese topping,the only word I can accurately use here is stodgy,i was served bread that had barely seen the inside of an oven and it reminded me of the type you would use for hotdogs! awful stodgy soft white bread,the Kitchen should have resigned for this crime alone but more crimes against Culinary were to follow........A Staroprammen Czech Beer soon arrived which is a lovely beer but again you pay thru the nose for the selection here and this is not just this bar,this is a warning to tourists for all Dublin bars,over €6 was paid for a Russian beer! (Baltica) ouch! (at those prices For a while I thought i was in Oslo!) i wonder how much it is in Moscow?
The Stodgy awful mess that masqueraded as a Burger and sad ,limp,lifeless chips were
the low point of the visit,just look at the photos,there was some white stuff oozing from the center and the chips were warm not hot,some kind of skewer went thru the Burger,some pale green jalapeno peppers were scattered half heartedly on the base and as i picked up the burger,the stodgy .....(oh yes more stodge just what i needed!) bread fell apart and then i realized what the skewer was for! If you look at the photos you can see two huge lettuce leaves and their friend Mr.Tomato push up the height of the small burger,hence the stick is needed to keep this conjob intact,and the cheese,look at it,the cheapest most awful stringy plastic cheese one could get in Aldi! you will pay €11.50 for this monstrosity,This unholy work of Satan laughed at me as i recoiled in horror, I have no hesitation in never recommending this place to anyone! Do go for some expensive beers even try the bangers and mash but for Gods sake dont touch the burgers!
