This is a Cork place. "If you don't like it then get out of my town" kind of shop. I found the chips extremely greasy, very small (like potato shavings) and very soggy. I think 99% of the good reviews here come from Cork people....More

I live about 30 min away from here but oh my good lord it is so worth the drive and hassle of finding parking. Food is always fresh. Nicest sausage supper you could get. Staff always a pleasure. Looking forward to a visit again soon.

Grabbed our take-away from here during a family visit to Cork. Considering they were preparing food for about 16 people they got it spot on. I had chips and a burger and it was very nice.

This is the best chipper in Ireland, let alone Cork. Food is top class and plenty of it. You'd feed a small army with a bag of chips. Staff are nothing short of outstanding and have a great work ethic. When going on a Friday...More
