“Bad value”

This was our 2nd visit to Flash Harry’s. Our first visit was not too successful either but our server was so excellent the first time that we decided to give Flash Harry’s another chance.

We ordered food and drinks. Chicken wings starter to share, kids sliders, Dirty Vegas burger and gunpowder prawns.

Chicken wings were fantastic. Kids sliders were fine except we specifically asked for no ketchup upon ordering but sliders arrived covered in ketchup. The fries that accompanied the kids sliders came in a “tin pan” that was only slightly bigger than an eggcup!!! Bad value for €8 and didn’t include a drink (€3 extra!!)

We had to ask for our mains approx 20 mins after our starter was cleared. We had obviously been forgotten. When our mains finally arrived, the Dirty Vegas burger was really good. The Gunpower prawns on the other hand were tasty but incredibly bad value for €12 (only 5 prawns and 2 triangles of bread).

We did complain and our complaint was acknowledged by the lovely staff who we could not fault.

Thank Denise O

Was recommended Flash Harry's by a colleague and I cannot thank her enough for suggesting it! I am American and have been living in Ireland for 4 years and this is by far the most authentic American food I have had in all my time living abroad. A lot of hipster places have popped up in Dublin since my time living here trying to crank out "authentic American BBQ" and it is NOT authentic.

My boyfriend & I ordered the Pit Plank which was a steal at €15 per person for the amount of food you get on the platter. On the platter you get 16 hour slow cooked Irish beef brisket, pulled pork, chicken wings, guacamole nachos, house slaw, onion rings & fries. The brisket is the best brisket I have had in Ireland and this is coming from a girl raised in the south! The only thing I can fault is the pork. It tasted a little bit like it had been cooked with tomatoes. Other than that, everything on the platter was delicious!

While we were there I saw someone from Just Eat picking up an order so I would definitely order food to my house from here and come back to try some of the other options. Worth a visit for sure!

Had lunch here the other day and it was delicious. Service was good and very friendly.
We tried the wings which we’re delicious but a little bit dry. We had the nachos also and nicely piled high with guacamole salsa etc very very tasty. Fries with the beef are a must try.
The portions are generous and good value. Definitely go here

I ordered a chicken fillet on the bone. When it came it was basically skin and bone. The waitress claimed it was a small chicken and walked away in a huff! Rude staff. Avoid!!!!
