I stumbled upon Eddie Rockets in Dublin’s Dane Street on the edge of the Temple Bar area, and was very impressed with the food, the surroundings and the service on offer. The food in particular was a major improvement over what you’d get in a standard burger chain. The burgers were well cooked –truly flame grilled - with tasty sauces for the burger as well as nicely seasoned chips. The free wi-fi worked well. Although the décor was in the style of an American diner, the music was a bit more mixed with sixties and seventies hits from both sides of the Atlantic – but all the better for that.
I ate here twice, and can only recommend this branch of the chain – although I also tried the O’Connell street branch, but I can only give this branch one star – as I left without even seeing any food due to the very poor service. As it was raining I chose this restaurant rather than returning to the Dane Street branch where I’d had an excellent meal earlier in the week. The chain has a notice on the wall in American Diner style that you might expect a friendly welcome – not at this restaurant, where I was not even greeted, just waved at to find my own table by someone behind the cash register. I was then ignored by the waitresses in favour of the regulars who came after me, but when I did get to order I received a cold drink served warm without ice. When I mentioned this it was suggested it must have melted! Coupled with the fact that the wi-fi didn’t work properly I left and braved the weather to return to the Dane Street branch – where again I had a five-star experience.
