I feel sad to be giving a one star for Lennox's because it used to be the best chipper in cork hands down. Maybe there's new owners??? Got a takeaway recently and my potato pie was uncooked which turned my stomach. The chips have gone downhill aswell and i felt sick after it. Sort it out :(

This is the best fried food I've ever had, I can't give this place any better praise. Service is fun and such a slice of Cork life. The food is amazing (do yourself a favour and order the cheese and onion pie). Go here for food and then stroll down to Pigalle or Tom Barry's for pints, can't go wrong!

Best chips in the city enough said. Definitely pick up the pink sauce it sounds weird but it's sooo good, you'll always have chips without it again.

Heard a lot about this place from friends so we decided to call at the weekend, Very big portions and the chips were crispy and delicious, Fish was fresh and tasty, My wife got the jackies delux burger and it was fine but not perfect, For this reason we give 4 stars but we will go back again. Fairly good... More

The chips came in very large portion, but were nothing special. The fish was heavily battered, and my son and I both wound up scraping out the fish and leaving the batter. By no means awful, but not what I was expecting in light of all the good reviews. We would not go back.

I have gotten Lennoxs chipper more times than I care to admit. They have quick efficient service, large portions and good selections. Best take away chipper on the south side. Would recommend the Thigh and a drumstick (which generously comes with a small amount of chips) and their garlic mayo is yummy! They have a few stools if your looking... More

This family run chip shop has to be the best ever. It's been listed as one of the top 10 take aways in Ireland. Very friendly staff and always in and out quite quickly. If u see the ques coming out the doors don't be deterred as it move very fast. Fab food and doesn't cost a fortune 🍔🍟

Having been a massive fan for years it's sad to see the place gone back. Chips are not as nice as they used to be and be undercooked however the biggest problem now is their burgers are precooked and left in a heated drawer till ordered, want something taken out burger ripped open and stuff taken out abs closed up...
