MULLEN’S TAKEAWAY in Dundalk is a beloved local institution.

It’s been serving up chips for more than four decades, earning a legion of dedicated fans in the process.

They also now have several branches, including fancy Blackrock and – whisper it – Drogheda, but the taawwwwwwn is their spiritual home.

Louth people in exile around the world pine for Mullens

They serve a wide and varied menu, but the specialty is the curry chip butty (with or without cheese)

Their curry chip butties inspire fearsome urges.

But are also recognised as a serious undertaking.

After all, Mullens have been known to work romantic miracles

Did we mention that they do this to the battered Mars Bars on Paddy’s Day?

When there was a fire in one outlet last September, there was ‘devastation’ in the town

But people pulled together to get through.

They’ve also been known to get properly creative with their offerings. Remember the Hot Dog Burritos back in 2013?

No? OK. Sure lookit.

And they’re a celebrity hangout. Check out Chloe from Geordie Shore, who appeared on their Facebook page as she was “in buying a kebab”

She obviously read this headline in the Argus.

In short: Mullen’s is forever. Who’s for chips?
