Have gone to Smith's many times whilst home and am always struck by the friendliness of the staff and the level of service. Surprised to see some of the reviews here as I've never had any problems with the food - good selection, and the burgers are delicious. Could perhaps use a bigger size of chip portion but that's about... More

Couldn't recommend this restaurant highly enough. It's a fantastic place in terms of choice of food, cleanliness & friendliness. Nothing is too much trouble. Firm favourites are the pancakes, carbonara & chicken curry followed by the OREO Sunday!!!

Lovely spot especially now that it has a sit down restaurant. Good food and good service. Easy to get a seat. The take away area is very slow you'd be quicker eating in the restaurant.

This is the best take away in Cavan but you can also eat in in this 60's diner themed restaurant. Staff are great and the menu is quite large. I usually order the double gourmet shroom burger which I think blows Bunsen Burger in Dublin out of the water, their gourmet burgers are probably the best in Ireland. I recommend... More

What happened the quesedillas? You used to have a choice of a Six-inch or a Twelve-inch serving...now there is only the 6 inch option at the price previously charged for the 12 inch! Was a big fan of Smith's but lately it's getting very sloppy
