I wanted to visit this place and take it off my bucket list. I think it’s a shame that they were the inventors and bottlers of Dr. Pepper and lost their rights to continue. That’s a law suit I simply disagree with as far as...More

We went on a Sunday afternoon, got there early and walked around nearby. Ashlyn and Cole were our tour guides, and provided lots of great information and stories about both the history of Dublin and the origins and quirks of Dr Pepper.

Very interesting place with long history of making good soda. Took some back for friends in Oklahoma and they loved it too. Nice to have soda made withcane sugar instead of corn syrup.

Miss the good ole days of Dublin Dr. Pepper, but they still offer a tasty variety of sodas, here! Lots of souvenirs, friendly staff.

This place used to serve the best Dr Pepper around the world for 120 years or so. They pushed the envelope and got squished by the big daddy company for trying to change the brand or whatever. They've got their own flavors now which aren't...More
