Got into a taxi and asked taxi driver to recommend a place. Took us here and were we glad he did. Really nice decor with great atmosphere, fast & friendly service. Highly recommend the pulled pork sandwich. Will definitely be back here for the amazing food.

Loved it.....different on the outside looks like a small pub....great surprise on the inside! Dark first, gets a little lighter and then completely opened up. FOOD is fab, so much to choose from, lovely atmosphere, great staff, three great big bar areas, different plasma T.V points which is a bonus! Great place for night out...covers all ages, its the place to go in Kilkenny!

I don't remember Texas being this nice. While it's always a bit comical to try Mexican food outside the Americas, this place did not disappoint for a tasty meal and a pint in a nice atmosphere. Lovely and art-deco-y with a very pretty bar.

Stopped in for a bite to eat, always a pleasure and great to see things back to normal, burger and chips really homemade and really tasty, not overly expensive, I like Paris texas, fine selection of draught beers from around the world, fantastic top shelf, great atmosphere in the marble city. Stop in, you won't be disappointed.

Exceptional service and wonderfully clean and stylish bar/restaurant. I tried their jambalaya and I was very happy with it. Outstanding jambalaya or jambalaya-inspired dishes aren’t very common in Ireland in my view so I was pleasantly surprised by how delicious theirs was. My jambalaya had a lovely smokiness to it and all the meats were well-seasoned and beautifully cooked – from the crawfish to the Andouille sausages. The heat and spiciness was also just right. We revisited this place and the atmosphere was buzzing and lively.
