Thunder Road Café is based in Dublin's Temple Bar. The themed restaurant has been serving American diner food for over 25 years. The restaurant bar offers a selection of live music on Friday nights, and an extensive drinks menu to match their colourful theme. Cocktails such as a Woo Woo and Strawberry Daiquiri have made it into the specials section. Food is served throughout the week and diners can enjoy a selection of traditional diner dishes with a European twist. A chosen few to mention from the menu are Buffalo chicken wings, an extensive Burger selection, as well as a choice of Steaks.

We are now taking bookings for indoor dining only. Please keep in mind that during busy periods you must order a main course per person when you are dining here.
Otherwise, our terrace area is open only for walk-ins everyday for a maximum of 4 people per table.

The enchilada's were awful. So soggy, they were not restaurant standard and not worth the price. We had to complain, however, the waitress was lovely and very helpful.

"No shows are subject of charge per person" like if my mate yesterday said he's going and then in the day he has issues and cannot communicate to me at all, I shouldn't be charged if he doesn't show up. Likewise, I know you have a big menu to all tastes, but I also cannot force a person to eat a main. I was nervous about all these rules. Once I went, I was happy with it all, my little boy loved the place, so did my little baby and my friends. Food is gorg, cocktails are lovely and staff very helpful. Parking exit is right beside it.

Everything was amazing...food, service, music, atmosphere, decor. It was my daughter's 18th birthday so we had all age groups, from 8yrs up to 54 yrs young (!) and we all enjoyed it. Cocktails were surprisingly good value too, for Templebar. A special mention to our waiter who was really attentive and friendly and couldn't do enough for us. We'll definitely be back!

We attended the Cinco de Mayo event so many a margarita was had. Very affordable. The food was great and the service was phenomenal. They have the LED candle type things that you flip over to bring a waiter to you so service is spot on. We were never left wanting. I would happily go again!

Sent it back and spent a lot of time waiting! I could tell they recooked my first burger again and added right toppings! Waiter was brilliant couldn’t stop apologising! I told him it was kitchen fault and he told me kitchen staff don’t care and to just send the food and hope customers will not complain.. I spent 70€ just on myself very poor value for money! I had four 11€ cocktails and left feeling like I had 4 cokes! Barely any alcohol in the drinks.. my starter was not served how is usually served and my waiter informed me there was not same chef in the kitchen my starter was complete mush on the plate and cold.. I would only recommend your establishment on Sundays when cocktails are 2 for one..

Even our children were disappointed with it.

However the food order they got totally wrong and the food itself was poor quality. Nachos with the worst cheese I’ve ever tasted. Chicken dippers were from frozen.

We were seated near the window and there was a smell of sewage but there were no other seats available. The people on either side of us were complaining of a smell also. Food was gorgeous and so were the cocktails. Staff were friendly. I had mentioned in my booking that the booking was for my brother's birthday but I thought this would mean something was going to be brought out for him but it wasn't. Thought it was a bit strange!

Both burgers felt the same as the ribs. Not a single second spent on the grill. Not impressed with the quality of the food. Desert was very nice though.
