“Worst staff in the country!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

I have eaten here quite a few times and although the food is decent I have had enough of the place!! The staff couldn't be more unpleasant if they tried - its very obvious that they don't want to be there. On three previous occasions they had ran out of three different types of soft drink. Yesterday we left because my son asked for a "ham and cheese paninni" only to be told that their menu stated it was a "ham, cheese and pineapple paninni" and they couldn't make his without the pineapple!!!!!!!! Oh and by the way, how about bringing yourselves into the modern business world...what kind of restaurant doesn't take ANY type of credit/debit card? We went elsewhere yesterday and will continue to do so.

“If you just can't be bothered to cook a meal...a good alternative!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

As friends we often eat here because its such good value! Good, no fuss Ulster home style cooking, although would like to see some more real American diner dishes. I'm a great fan of the show 'Diners, Drive ins and Dives' on Sky and wish I could get the real Diner experience here! If the full on family experience is too much, adults can retreat to a separate area in the Pit Stop to eat in peace, often they have a welcoming open fire in there, great in this Baltic weather! The one thing that really irritates however, is the non stop loop of GHASTLY Country and Western music guaranteed to depress you even if you didn't feel down when you came in, you can't escape from it even in the adults only area. Could we at least have Sky News on in there to drown out the mournful dirge from the family area.........Please??

“Northern Ireland's answer to an American diner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

The BEST all day breakfast at a good price, well cooked, good quality bacon, full of calories but so enjoyable.

“Not impressed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

I've driven past the Pit Stop many times and heard people talking about it. Wish I'd kept on driving. The ordering system is the strangest thing and waitresses walking about with food, trying to find the recipient is beyond a joke. Good for a hangover cure maybe but not much else.
