This is a take-out only place, with a pretty decent size menu. The line always seems to be long, and you're likely to make friends waiting to order, and then waiting to pick-up your food. The food is very good, and the prices are even better. I'm surprised there aren't these all over Ireland - they have the formula down... More

Visited for first time after the Marquee Fri June 24 as we heard so much about K.C.s. Four of us loved the queue, the ordering and the eating. Discovered the King Creole so my first visit will be the first of many. Well done K.C.s.

As a local, I am well used to KCs and the queue. As a Father's Day treat, I offered to queue as this is my husband's favourite take away. What a let down.

Queuing up with friends and enjoying an absolute feed while stinking up your car is mighty craic! I love the Mexican pitta, chicken bombay, and chilli chips.

This is my favourite place in Cork for a sandwich. Polinesian and Kansas are the best. The Squealer Cheaps with pull pork are delicious! I will recommend this place to everybody. When the weather is good, I really enjoy eating one of this sandwiches in the Park.

Really nice and stuff but the wait seriously was ridiculous staff weren't that nice to be fair I'd heard so much about this place and had built up a big expectation, not to be rude but it nothing's not what I'd hoped for 😞
