Looking for Breakfast in Upington on a Sunday morning, i first went to check out Zest in it's new(ish) location in the Protea Hotel, but it was far too "hotel breakfast" for what I felt like. So I made my way over to the Kalahari...Mall (last resort for me, to eat in a Mall) to old faithful Mugg & Bean, only to find it didn't survive covid and has been replaced some other place that didn't look too appealing. So I headed to the Spur for what is probably my very first ever Spur breakfast. The only reason I would even consider it was because I'd eaten a couple of burger lunches at this Spur on previous trips and was always impressed by the the overall professionalism and quality of everything. They did not disappoint. Outstanding service, excellent food in great portions and top quality coffee. Just goes to show, when you know what you're doing, you can do it for breakfast as well! Well done Desert Wolf Spur!More

On Sundays in Upington, most restaurants are closed but the Spur was open in the mall. It is always a good bet because the food is standardised. Service was excellent

Your typical family restaurant. All you would expect from a SPUR. Located in the Kalahari mall, nice place to take a break from shopping, or just enjoy a nice cold beer, while your wife spend your money.

Reviewed 1 September 2019

We ate here for lunch during Upington on our two-week trip to South Africa. To start with the positives, the restaurant has a large play space for kids - including an arcade, play-structure, and coin operated rides. We found that many places around the Upington...area make sure that kids are well accommodated, far beyond what is typically expected in the United States. Desert Wolf Spur probably offered the best of all that we saw. The other positive aspect of the meal was the large serving sizes for very reasonable prices. Unfortunately, the quality of the food was thoroughly mediocre. Service was interesting, as the wait staff seemed to compete for incoming guests to sit in their assigned sections and were fairly aggressive in attempting to upsell meals. We also found ourselves assisted by three of more staff members. Overall, the meal was average.More

We were travelling through Uppington and stopped at the Desert Wolf Spur for a quick lunch. Standard Spur décor and menu which makes you feel at home there. My lovely wife and I had a sauce burger each, one with mushroom sauce and the other...with the peri peri sauce. Both were well prepared and tasty. The service was good, even with a trainee waitress. Our only concern was that it took nearly 45 minutes to prepare our food, which is not acceptable.More
