Burger cravings satisfied: Eddie Rocket’s City Center branch!
A few blog posts ago, I shared with you a weekend where I spent most of the days walking around Dublin city center looking for bargains (aka a lame excuse to shop). On that post, I also raved (and ranted!) on the experiences from the day. And, I also promised to write a review on the burger joint where we ate our lunch called Eddie Rockets! So, here it is!
Before I even started this travel and food blog, I have eaten in this American Diner a lot of times. I can say this place is one of my favorite burger joints (one of the many) since the food is reasonably priced and ambiance looks cool and trendy. I mean, who wouldn’t want to have burgers for a meal, right?
On that weekend, we arrived a few minutes before 1 PM. It was great as we didn’t want to queue to get in and get a seat. As expected, we got our seats immediately. But the waitress who assisted us seemed a bit disconnected to the job, though. I had the impression she’s new and not fluent in English, too. As she approached, she barely talked and only motioned the table where we should sit. She didn’t even ask if we needed a high chair despite seeing our son. She quietly left the menu on top of the table and left without another word! My husband had to take the high chair by himself to set it up!
Anyway, after we settled in, another waitress approached our table. She asked if it was our first time in the diner or if we knew how to order. We answered we were OK so she left us for a few moments so we can choose our meals in peace. She came back a few minutes later to get our order and all we have to do is wait for our food.
That weekend, I ordered the M50 from the menu. I paid for an additional €5 (I think) to make it a burger meal which includes a drink and some fries, too. My husband and I love the crispy onion rings, so we bought one order as well.
Our food arrived promptly. Despite the slight disappointment with the service at first, our food was the same good old Eddie Rockets burger I love. The burger patty was juicy and bread seemed fresh. Our chips were served hot. We had to wait a few moments before giving a few pieces to my son.
Overall, we had a nice lunch that weekend at Eddie Rockets. Not the best, though. As I think they could’ve done a better job training the waitress how to deal with customers with kids!
