Abrakebabra (Sligo, IRE)

Grattan Street, Sligo, Co. Sligo, Ireland, T: 071-914-5524

Abrakebabra is an Irish chain that sells kebabs, burgers, fried chicken, french fries, and sandwiches. It opened in 1982 and has by now 55 franchises nationwide; in the UK it failed. I had eaten in a Dublin branch many years ago, and this time I stopped in for a quick snack at its Sligo franchise.

I had a Doner Kebab (€5.95), which had fairly generic, salty meat strips, slaw, and garlic and red sauce on a thin wrap. It was greasy, but tasty. My friend had a Quarter Pounder (€3.20), which looked quite pale and uneventful, but was nevertheless appreciated.

VERDICT: 77/100
Abrakebabra is a chain that services fairly decent and fairly affordable snacks. However, as it does this in Ireland, not known for its tasty or affordable foods, it is a good place to visit when on the Green Island.

  1. Sir, to go back on your comment that Ireland is a country not known for its tasty food, you are simply basing your opinions on fast food restaurants. Ireland is a country that is world renowned for its fresh, free-range,high quality organic food. Good quality fresh food always demands a premium. If you wanna eat fries and burgers all day every day, then go right ahead. I just wish you wouldn't base your views on just one trip to Abrakebabra.

    P.S Abrakebabra is not that great of a takeaway & only makes money at night time after people leave the pub tanked up on drink!!
