Simply amazing. If you like burgers, this place is a must. The only drawback is that they only open on the evenings.

I go here regularly, and the food is incredible. I have eaten half the menu at this stage. The Kansas city is a personal favourite (Pulled pork). The staff are always friendly

Being with Irish friends, I heard a lot about this place and they brought me for starting the weekend on a Friday night. The burgers are wonderful and very good prices! For the chips, it was average. But the burgers, it is good fast food and value.

I had been to K.C's many times, back in the 90's because I was working nearby and was never been disappointed. I rediscovered the place this year and it has gotten better. This is a very popular Chipper, but wort the wait to get in :-) There's a great choice of food and after you finally decide what to have,... More

There aren't too many village chippers that can draw customers from miles away just to eat from a paper bag while sitting in their car double-parked across the way. Whatever you do, don't order a simple fish & chips, try out the menu because it's been honed over decades to its current epic form.

You have to wait a long time in the humid Cork and when you arrive inside, only a couple of minutes to order the food to take away. But then... you understand what so many people is waiting everyday. Delicious hamburgers, pitas, chips... Very generous and good value.

We went here on the way back from Wilton last night, it has been over 1.5 years since I was last here as we are seldom up in this area. The Queue was well out the door but we said we were that far so would queue. It was worth it! I had the Creole with some chips and it... More

In my opinion there is no takeaway in Ireland better than kcs. The pittas have to be the best ever . There's a reason you have to queue it is the best and you have to wait for the best . Kansas City Pitta and Bombay are my favourite
