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...

As a Cork native I've been to Lennoxs more times than I can count but over the last few years the quality of the food has slipped tremendously and my most recent visit has prompted this review. During my most recent visit I just got a bag of chips and a carton of curry. I took it home and discovered... More

If you are in Cork you must must must try Lennox's! It is a classic, a favourite of mine which never fails to satisfy me. The food is to die for and normally I am not a fan of fast food but Lennox's is incredible. I would highly recommend for everyone!

I was quite confused when I first went in about the set up and where to go to order. I was ordered around by the man behind the counter about where I should stand and that I should stay in an orderly line. Portions were very large and would nearly be enough for two people. It was a little over... More

Nothing beats Lennox for a lazy night dinner. It is the best and the service is so quick. I love the potato pie, it is addictive.
