This review in the Irish Times is a few weeks old, but isn't overly glowing.

My Meat Wagon in Smithfield - a bit on the hipster side but damn fine food, and splendid helpings of meat.

Went to http://www.buenosairesgrill.ie the other night. GF had a deal voucher for 2 people / 2 courses for €32. I had a rib eye steak and the GF added €5 for the fillet. It was just ok. I might go again if I got the same deal but would not pay full price.

I would rather pay an extra €4 a head more for the early bird at FX Buckley.

I agree with the Hippo on this one. Was looking to satisfy my curiosity on the BBQ style food. Chose this place. Went with Mrs John23 & the heir. Really good food. Large portions. Carnivores only please. John23 jnr contends that it is better foodwise than Pitt Bros., and on a par with Bison but better bang for your buck/euro.

Yeah me and the girlfirend got everything on the menu for €20. It's deadly!

Hobarts in Ranelagh is a top notch little greasy spoon spot, fantastic brekkie and the fruit smoothies are the best I've had anywhere a outs. Great place worth discovering.
