If you are either born in, or have relocated to Cork in the last 58 years and you have yet to hear of KC and Sons chipper and take away, your entire world is about to change.
Priding themselves on not being ‘fast-food’ but ‘fast-casual’, they are renowned not only for their exceptional take on chipper classics, but their original and mouth watering pitta selection.
Located in the centre of Douglas Village, just outside Cork City, KC & Son & Sons opened their doors in 1958 and has been a local favourite ever since. Ken Crawford is the original K.C. Since then, it has remained within the family and as the name suggests, passed on from son to son.

Most famous on the diverse menu could be the King Creole, or if you are a more of a red meat fan, the KC Special Burger is a fan favorite.
If I have set your mouth-watering craving into first gear or you are about to break your K.C
seal, don’t forget about you wait. It is almost expected that you will be standing outside in a queue behind other hungry Corkonians. They are so busy, they even host a ‘q-cam’ on their website.
Trust me, queue or not, it is worth waiting for to your turn to get your hands on the best treat in the city.
