Death Row Dive n Diner has just the right level of quirkiness. When I first saw the name of it, my first thought was, "I'm going to take my boyfriend on a date there." I know that doesn't really make sense, but both he and I have a taste for the weird and wonderful, and this seemed like just the place to go.
I made a reservation via OpenTable but, to be honest, we ended up being the only people in the restaurant which I didn't mind at all. The waiter was very friendly. We spent the first few minutes looking at all the decor (spectacularly creepy) and talking about how the place definitely lived up to its name.
I can't say I remember what my boyfriend ate, but we did order some bacon onion rings to share and I had the Pickleback burger complete with the shot of Jameson because, come on, it's a pickleback and you can't miss out on the shot. The bacon onion rings were heavenly. Just the right mix of sweet and savory. We tried to recreate them at home but didn't quite live up to it. The pickleback burger was also fantastically well-done; it had the right amount of bite to combat the Jameson shot. The drinks were tasty and when we left, my boyfriend immediately stated, "Well, we have to come back here next time you visit," to which I agreed.
I would recommend this to anybody in Liverpool looking for a slightly unconventional eating environment, and will definitely be back in the fall for some more food.
Stumbled upon this hidden gem!! Worked great for our group with kids. Food was fresh and great twists on American classics! Coming from the States, it was a hit with our group!!!
