Great BBQ place with great food. The service is decent and the place clean. The wood cooked ribs and wings are pretty good and the fries have to be the best part. The desert served was excellent, it was worth the price.

Had a blast of a time, not only was the service good and the waiters friendly, but the food was absolutely amazing... Nice decent portions and tasty. We will surely be back a few things that we still want to try...

Went to BBQ Warehouse for ice cream after a recommendation to try their ice cream. Wow, ice cream was wonderful . Some of the best ice cream we have had. Selection is wonderful, service was great. Also had a look at the menu, which looked...great. Will definitely be back for a full meal.....with ice cream for dessert.More

The chicken was cooked fantastically on the BBQ (obviously it’s cooked over charcoal,not gas, that smell alone is hunger inducing). Tender, delicious filling and parted out. The sauce was divine, the service excellent and I had a large amount to take away, all for R89....Delicious. The Greek owners were there too, proving its authenticity, who were also very engaging and charming. VFM 10/10, Service 10/10, Flavour, just off the scale πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘More

I had chicken in a Pita and it was very good. Then waffles and ice cream for dessert that was divine. It was unfortunate that the service was very poor, despite the restaurant being quiet.

Fast food with quality and very friendly service. We had beef and lamb gyros which were really nice. Not a place where you sit for long, but really good value for money.

My hubby had the giro plate and it really wasn’t great.. R189 for food that was dry and just not amazing. I had the chicken giro - pretty average and dry too. We don’t mind paying for food that is well worth it but this...really wasn’t and we were looking forward to delicious Greek food. The dessert is better than the mains. We may have just ordered the wrong thing..More
