After years of driving by the place a friend and I stopped to check it out. Interesting pieces of history and a old school soda fountain. They also have a variety of snacks and other drinks available.

Stopped with the family in Dublin and Docs soda shop (part of the bottling facility). Decided against tour with pricing at $5 adults, $4 children. Instead, spent the money on a variety of flavored sodas @ $1.25 ea only because of the "pure cane sugar" (instead of todays norm of high fructose corn syrup) ingredient. Girls behind counter were very... More

This is a really great place to visit. It's interesting and you learn a lot of history about soda. It just isn't as good without the Dublin Dr Pepper though. Before they stopped making it, I bought a few cases and I've kept the last bottle as a memento. If you're in the area, go and visit this place. If... More

My wife and best friend accompanied me to Dublin, Texas to see the Dublin Bottling Works tour. It was a great trip. We toured the famous little bottling plant and learned some great history of the former "Oldest Dr.Pepper Bottler" in Texas. You can see the way it was once done before computers took over. You can taste product that... More

I learned a lot really appreciated a new taste for my taste buds! I had my first Dublin in Llano Texas and as I drove down HWY 281. I saw the sign "21 miles to Dublin", "what the heck lets check it out" I can still here the rattling of bottles in the back as we drove off with 2... More

My husband is a huge Dr Pepper fan & loved Dublin Dr Pepper from the 1st time he tried it. We toured the Waco museum before the lawsuit, but didn't make it to Dublin until after. Still some interesting history & we brought a variety pack of what they still bottle there back to Knoxville, TN with us. I hate... More

I had been here a few years back before the lawsuit which unfortunately shut down their Dr. Pepper bottling and wasn't sure what to expect. The tour was very similar and as always, very interesting. Unfortunately you did not get a taste of the famed Imperial Sugar Dr. Pepper but you did get tastes of the various other Imperial Sugar... More

I came across a commercial advertising for St. Patrick's Day to come out to Dublin. Having been to the real Dublin I thought it would be unique to visit the one in Texas. Spoiler alert: there's no blarney stone nor any cool castles.....but there's plenty of history. We went the weekend before the famous holiday and the town and soda... More

I recommend going on the tour of the bottling plant and the museum that has all the Dr Pepper items. They no longer bottle Dr Pepper, but when they stopped they had been the oldest bottling plant to have been bottling Dr Pepper. They bottled Dr Pepper for almost 121 years! Only about an hour and a half away from... More

This is a perfect example of the resilience of people. After bottling the Dr. Pepper soft drink for more than 100 years, a law suit forced drastic change on this company. In spite of this conflict, the company is embracing the change. Dublin Bottling Works now produces 11 original sodas, none of which are close to the dearly departed Dublin... More
