About
Afro’s started in a trailer at “Durban Day”, Peoples Park in September 2012. That was the first of two trailers that travelled durbs for two years, pulling up at the finest markets, events, shindigs & private jols. In 2014 we moved into our first shop on South Beach, serving surfers, cyclists, power walkers & anyone who agrees it’s “lekker by die see!” We’ve moved into a 9 locations since then. and we’ll keep moving.

My grandchildren was on visit from Gauteng and absolutely loved the variety available and could not stop talking about how scrumptious the food was. It was our regular midday meal whilst visiting the beach everyday. They even begged their parents to find an Afro's close to home to continue the experience! (We all know how difficult it is to please teenagers and there were 3 of them)! Just loved the experience!

Meals good with your type of taste, variety to choose & enjoy with good sauces from hot to medium. A real must on my next visit with my friends. Great atmosphere, my thanks go to especially the chef, quite clean, well set & organised. Waiters were wonderful, always came around to ask if all's okay.

This is a great chicken option in Durban for takeaways. The chicken is always tender. My kids absolutely love the lemon and herb, and the salad option is really tasty.

Afros have come a long way from their early food wagon days, but, their flagship Chicken Strips and Chips have never failed to hit the mark. From beach walking snacks to Uber deliveries you cant beat the flavour and consistency.

This is a great spot, right on the beach and easy affordable meals. I liked their coffee and their chicken strips.

You really have to do better than an oily piece of chicken with a sloppy mayo dressing and tired chips to get me back there. And the service is poor. They've got this "We're so cool it's okay to be rude" thing going. Save your money and cook in the hotel room. It will taste better.

Never been let down. Great food on the go. We often stop off here after our walk along the promenade. Great spot to have a breakky roll

Had very enjoyable strips and tjips peri-peri style. Chicken strips were juicy and plentiful with well spiced peri-peri marinade and accompanying chips were hot and crispy. It’s not haute cuisine but is definitely good value for fairly quick food.

Thought it would just be another fast food chicken joint but it was way above my expectations. Chicken salad with chili was very good, as were the chicken straps and "tjips" which a colleague had. The chicken wrap was also declared to be tasty. Easy parking during the week but could be a problem on weekends. Great value for money for the food we got.

somehow all the chicken places have the same way they operate ..same flavors and same style. The only thing I can say is that my meal was fresh and little on the price side

excellent place for a casual no frills chicken and chops-served quickly, prepared fresh and tasty options...not too many choices but that a good thing for a specialty restaurant

We were in Durban for only a few days and really wanted to stop by Afro's after coming here for the first time 4 years earlier. And while we could have chosen any of the other branches in Durbs, it was really only this one that we had to come too. So after a very early morning cruise of the harbour and the coastline (which was stunning), during which the fresh sea air had worked us up an appetite, we stopped by Afro's for a breakfast of chicken 'strips & tjips', and a burger (shared between two) shunning the more traditional breakfast fare. The menu has expanded considerably since we last stopped by and the food was much better than I remember. We went for a mix of chili and lemon flavourings and both were great - the chips were really good, especially for SA! Location was great on an early morning, where we could watch the early morning walkers, surfers and cyclists pass by. If you spot yourself right you can keep an eye on your car in the nearby car park, otherwise there is a car guard. Staff and friendly and helpful. Only criticism is the amount of plastic used. Understandably the fact that the restuarant is essentially a container and some benches, washing facilities weren't a premium - however, some biodegradable cutlery would be a plus and ditch the plastic straws!

Popped into the Afro's on Florida Road a few days ago. Really chilled spot behind Starbuck with quick service and god food. I needed some lunch and it certainly fitted the bill in more ways than one. While there's lots of competition in this area (lunch-wise) they definitely hold their own.
