It certainly resembles an idealised, theme park version of a 1950's US diner - well, without the 300lb customers chewing on chilli dogs, and the would-be cool, James Dean manques with crumpled packets of Luckys rolled-up in their T-shirt sleeves - and most of the music is spot on (it was nostalgic to hear Buddy Holly numbers on the table...

Went here on our first day in Dublin after walking for hours and what a little treasure! Service was slow, granted, but we were in no rush and enjoyed watching the world go by. Its a small diner, but serves everything you need at very reasonable prices. It is NOT gourmet, but has a lovely charm that you wont find... More

This restaurant is just like Johnny Rockets' in the states. Tasty burgers with many options to doctor them up, huge fries. Friendly service, always nice to simply sit down and enjoy a coke, a burger, and fries, even when you're in a foreign country and should be eating the local fare.

Best burger I have had in a long time, the family meal deal at 25 euros is fantastic value!! So busy but with a good atmosphere. Will be back!

I suppose it's not the cheapest but is a bit different especially if you like that sort of thing, which I do.

Bright, clean, shiny, a pastiched of a 50s US burger joint, only here, mainly staffed by Eastern European women. The irony isn't missed. The burgers are tasty and cooked to order and the portions generous. The onion rings were enormous and great value and I would have had them instead of the fries. They also do sweet potato fries and... More

The atmosphere here was great and the staff so so nice. The food was really genuinely good grub and the portions were reasonable. The big downer for me was the price which despite the good points is basically just too high! We would would go again but we would be more careful about our budget.
