    What's the catch? Or just one of these opening offers?

    Does it include sausages, battered sausages, drinks etc which they also sell? :)

    No catch, just the grand opening. Yeah includes sausages, battered sausages, drinks, fish, pies and chips.

    I think its from 12pm onwards. Finally a decent chip shop in Dundrum, the portions are feckin huge, you could feed 2-3 people with one portion of chips.

    Hope they do delivery.

  • Registered Users Posts: 406 ✭✭ akadesign


    It's on a poster on their window, also asked one of the guys who was in there at the time.

    I'm starving right now and just round the corner. Is it just the proper opening tomorrow or are they open now? (You had said you were in the shop).


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,119 ✭✭✭ dajaffa


    Whereabouts is it in relation to the shopping centre?


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,784 ✭✭✭ chillywilly


    on dundrum main street, beside the post office. if you walk past the taxi rank outside the dundrum cinema walk straight down the road and through the cross road and its on your left.

    Based on other posts, it seems to be down in the village opposite Dundrum House

    They're better than most, but charge it accordingly.
    I've been given undercooked fish (plaice) twice in Abbey St, so I'm not overly complementary of them.

    None of the other Leo Burdocks in Fishamble street, Rathmines or Liffey St do deliveries so I wouldn't build up your hopes.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,784 ✭✭✭ chillywilly


    it says they deliver northside and southside on their website?


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,878 ShoulderChip


    hmm would it be worth chancing after work at about half 5?


  • Registered Users Posts: 406 ✭✭ akadesign

    Yeah but you can't fault the portions, you pay the same everywhere else and get half the amount.

    Beshoff's charge the same price and you normally just get a scoop full of chips, the fish fills the rest of the box :rolleyes:

    I don't see anyone else giving away free food, fair play to the lads especially in these recessionary times :)


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 16,096 ✭✭✭✭ the groutch


    probably a relatively small amount of freebies, and very small portions, not worth making a journey especially imo


  • Registered Users Posts: 406 ✭✭ akadesign


    Nope, full portions.

    @CreepingDeath

    Rathmines DO actually deliver. Just not during the summer months. :mad:


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,428 ✭✭✭ allanb49


    Gonna pop down after work. broke and sick so free food is a welcome plus


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,889 ✭✭✭ afatbollix


    any one been to take them up on there offer? is it worth heading down?

    Yeah would be definitely interested in heading down if anyone could give us info on portion size,queue size etc. anyone whos been down get posting!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,119 ✭✭✭ dajaffa


    Was down just after 12pm. Q'd for just over 5 mins, you just order what you want, drink n all, you get full portions (I got cod, chips + coke). Theres a few boxes on the desk as they're taking donations for the Vincent de Paul (there's no minimum donation, totally up to yourself). I saw getting deliveries of minerals so as not to run out so if you're anywhere near the area then its definitly worth heading down.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 16,096 ✭✭✭✭ the groutch


    nice that they are collecting donations for a worthwhile charity, and one days takings would probably be a drop in the ocean anyway


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 25 ✭✭✭ garyo


    Thanks for the heads up, defiantly head down, queue wasn't to bad, about 5 mins but everything ready to go so no waiting.

    Their giving away full portions, and there's plently.

    As above their fundraising for St. Vincent de Paul, fair play to them, free grub and promoting a worth while cause in the process. There's some boxes on the counter, so give as little or as much as you want.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,889 ✭✭✭ afatbollix


    yup went down at id say a busy time.. 15 minutes waiting.. deffo worth it..


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,484 ✭✭✭ quarryman


    anyone know if this will be running until the end of the day? i was gonna pick up my dinner there after work.

    Yeah apparently its the entire day, until they run out of stock of coarse. I'd say from the looks of things you'll be okay if you go before 8.
