Best chips ever and their curry sauce is to die for. I just love it here. Always a mental queue but it goes unbelievably quick. The chips come wrapped in paper the only way to have. You have to try this place a million times before you die

K.C's is an institution in Cork. Few places have such a dedicated following, the food is really good for what it is, highly recommended after a few pints

Ridiculously small portions. Poor chips. Lennox of Barrack St a far better option. Not worth the queuing

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.

Thank FoxWynne
