Dear fast food

I must admit I visit Eddie Rockets a few times a year and I have visited the original version Johnny Rockets in the US. It is certainly tasty and the chicken tenders are lovely although they often over cook them. The restaurants are always nice and clean and they are always busy, so they have a... read more

Stopped here with kids while visiting over Easter and was pleasantly surprised! Yes it's more expensive than your average burger chains but the quality is great. I had a chicken fillet burger, which could be identified as a chicken filet, was very tender & really tasty. The kids had lovely, thick ice cream shakes and floats alongside their burger &... More

I always go to Eddie Rockets at least once on every trip I make to Ireland. I love the burgers and fries - all washed down with a yummy chocolate malt. It's a bit like KFC in that it isn't a place you would want to go regularly, and you sometimes feel ill after you have eaten too much there,... More

I just love the style of Eddie Rockets, I visit it every time I'm in Ireland! The "Fast"-Food is prepared fresh for each customer. Try the Veggie-Burger!

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.
