Blink and you’d miss it as you cruise through the bustling village of Douglas. Yet, even though dwarfed by the adolescent growth spurts of industry and progress around us, KC's still stands tall as a truly world renowned eatery. For over half a century now the family run business has certainly done its best to maximize the output from the tiny building bursting with fresh ideas and overflowing with gastronomic creative juices.
Among the first to introduce the Hamburger to the people of Cork. Inventors of the often imitated Meat Patties. Purveyors of the famous King Creole, Chicken Bombay and The KC Special Burger. Serving thousands of hungry people every week, the best things really do come in small packages.
Here at KC's we're not just passionate about the food we produce, we also care deeply about the environment. 95% of our packaging is recyclable or compostable. We use Down To Earth products such as forks and drinking straws made from starch which biodegrade within 180 days.
We also try to use local suppliers and producers as much as possible. Our chicken is sourced locally, supplied by Sheehan's farm just up the hill from us. Our beef is locally farm reared, supplied by Bresnan's Butchers. The fish we use is caught in Irish waters and usually landed at Crosshaven or Castletownbere. Our bread is baked daily by Cuthbert’s Bakery in Midleton. We smoke our own Irish bacon.
We make our own sauces and blend our own spices.
