“Nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We visited this restaurant on Sunday with two young kids, we went with the family deal and when my husband asked could he upgrade and pay the difference between standard fries and sweet potato fries he was told NO - a loss of an extra few euro. The children's drink was to be bottled water but was from tap instead. The chips came and were well underdone. Asked for gravy as we got mash potatoes and sausages for kids and again NO. I found though this aim was a family restaurant I was left disappointed

“It is what it says on the tin.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Typical American diner on the doorstep of the Travelodge, so a good standby with free WiFi. Ask for a big plate for your food to be served on.

“Fine filling feed - bit expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Menu selection extensive, place was very clean with very good service. Food was lovely and pints were great especially as travelodge did not have a bar. Prices are expensive for burger type fare but they are freshly cooked and substantial and very very tasty.

Loved the decor, little juke boxes, music not too loud, friendly staff and delicious food, wasn't pestered even though must a spent nearly two hours over dinner, and breakfast next morning was tasty.

“Like america in 1950's”

We have been to Eddie Rockets a few times and enjoyed the food. It has a real 1950's atmosphere and we will definitely be back
