Coopers was the first major steakhouse to embrace the burger as a fast food staple, opening its first store in Ireland in 1973 and opening its flagship outlet in London in 1975.
Now the Coopers franchisees have a second shop in Dublin with another in the UK and it’s only the third in the United States.
In a recent interview with the New York Times, co-owner John Breslin described how the restaurant’s current menu is influenced by the burger.
He said the menu at the new Irish outlet is based on the burger’s success and not based on how much he likes it.
Coopers also recently opened a new restaurant in Sydney.
Here’s how they described their burgers in the New Yorker.
