This is the best take away in Cavan but you can also eat in in this 60's diner themed restaurant. Staff are great and the menu is quite large.

What happened the quesedillas? You used to have a choice of a Six-inch or a Twelve-inch serving...now there is only the 6 inch option at the price previously charged for the 12 inch! Was a big fan of Smith's but lately it's getting very sloppy

We regularly order food from this establishment, you don't have to tell them your order twice and they are super efficient. We rarely eat in, usually take away, however the place it bright, menu boards are quite clear, it is very reasonably priced and we would not hesitate to recommend or revisit.
