    Lennox's on Bandon Road is still the best in the business, although standards have been slipping very slightly imo. Tip of the hat to Murphy's near the North Cathedral, which isn't in the poll but do a damn fine fish supper.

    The Lennox's on Tory Top road is a hole. The worst chips in the city and disgusting burgers.

    I'd go for Lennox's but bring back Mattie Kiely any day, there was a true chipper!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 186 ✭✭ Davedubh


    Well zicos is by far the worst,your practicly eating grease in that place.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,656 ✭✭✭ dulpit


    Lennox's is gonna win because everyone thinks that it's the best, but to be honest it's not...

    KC's ftw!

    Tastebuds! We need a set of tastebuds over here, stat!

    I can't believe Hillbilly's isn't in the poll. Or Hoggy's. Plus of course there's Mimmo's in Cobh. Amateurs, that's all ye are.

    Mimmo's have horrible oven chips. Hillbo's does indeed provide a mean breast in a bun.

    Wouldnt waste my time with Lennoxes tbh. KC's do a nice pitta but you cant beat Dino's Douglas for chips and a potato pie.
    bring back Mattie Kiely any day, there was a true chipper!

    Noticed that nobody has picked Lennox's on Tory Top Road... Which is a good thing, how the hell did that place make it onto the poll?

    Same goes for Barties...

    they used to be great spots. sadly things change

    It really is between Lennox's and KC's isn't it? I voted Lennox's due to KC's being in Douglas where I never have reason to find myself. Lennox's chips haven't been as wonderful of late though. Jackie Big Tits (Double D) is some burger though.

    54 votes? Didn't know this forum had that many users.

    KCs ftw! lennoxs is muck (although the one on Angelsea St. does have some nice food despite its grottiness).

    Its a class thing, inner city types and students love Lennoxs

    the La di da types with their cars and Douglas homes go for the sumptous fare on offer in KCs all the time.

    Lennox Bandon Road -- where exactly is it ? -- was there years ago on the way back to Clon , and cannot rembember exactly where, I remember that you turn left on Westeren Road

    Find Barrack Street and you shall find the chips you are looking for.

    Golden Fry all the way best pies in Cork!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 4,150 E92


    If I want to pollute myself with an overdose of greese then I'll have Dino's in Douglas.

    The only Lennox's worth going to is the proper one in the Bandon Road.

    Denny's by Cork Con is gay.

    Dominos in Douglas ftw though!

    I think I'll give Lennox's a shout the next time on my way to Clon --- the rest of the places described seem to be a bit dodgy

    KC's is fairly awesome to be fair.

    has to be lennoxes bandon road!!!! savage!!!!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 48 ✭✭✭ Bunnywabbit*


    KC's BLT :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 296 ✭✭ BeansMeansHynes


    KC's by far is the best chipper.

    The chips in Dino's, Turners Cross are just so vile.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,631 dh0661


    I was just checking the poll, how can there be such a vast differance between lennox bandon road @ 34.12% and lennox tory top road @ 1.18% - I presume that both shops are serving the same food, and are run by the same managment ?


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,225 ✭✭✭ run_Forrest_run


    KCs is an experience. I brought a friend from Seattle there once and he was blown away...and that's saying something to impress a fast food lovin' American :D


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,422 Jimbo


    How about Dino's Bishopstown? They do a mean burger.
    Where's KCs?

    they are not mentioned on the poll, only Dino's Douglas, Turners Cross and Kinsale are in the poll.
    I think I will have to go back to Cork for a while myself, and give my own opinion, and get fat :rolleyes: er

    I stopped going to Dino's Bishopstown, King Dinos are beasts but one time I went back because it was far too red on the inside and they didn't do **** but mostly because the chips were dire.
