Great place

Kids loved it! Service was friendly, not too fast or too slow. Kids were well looked after which was really nice. Like a step back in time it oozed old time diner atmosphere and I loved the uniforms. Toilets need a bit of work but a pretty cool place to stop for a burger and a shake

My boyfriend and I decided on Eddie Rockets for a bite to eat before catching the bus home after a day of shopping in Dublin last night (Saturday). We arrived at 7:40, but weren't seated until 7:50. After being shoved into our table at the very back of the restaurant, the waitress mumbled something to my boyfriend and after asking... More

Burger used to be better. Seems that they lowered their standards. Meat has almost no taste, side dishes are smaller... Looks like they are becoming a fast food joint rather than burger place. If, as they advertises, they perfected the burger, I prefer to get a non-perfect version somewhere else.

You get exactly what you would expect from a diner, fast food service, a tasty burger, and a bill, no frills attached

Stopped here for lunch. The service was great and the food was divine. The standing and waiting times were terrible. We stood in a queue for around 15 minutes.

Good food. Portions are good. The music is great. Child friendly.The premises Is long and narrow, don't know would I like people walking up and down behind me if I were sitting at the counter. The queuing system is awkward as the premises are narrow and the tables are v close to the queue

The 50-60's US style made me expect the waitresses to wear roller skates, but the overall service was good. The price is quite high for the portions' size. The burgers are not as good as you would think; try the garlic mushrooms and banana-peanut butter milkshake instead.. delicious!
