The food was incredible!!! 🤩 Service was friendly and efficient. Lovely atmosphere. We were lucky it was a Sunday and was quiet. We enjoyed the food. They feed you big portions

We were in Upington on a Sunday night so ended up at The Dros. The food was great and my favourite lamb chops didn't disappoint!

Go to a Dros and you'll get what you are used to: Reasonable food at reasonable prices. The Dros in Upington is no different, staff is friendly and eager to help. Food not to get ecstatic about. Inside is too dark for my taste, sit...outside...More

Informal place with attentive service and great grilled food. I had the combo beef burger + deboned spare ribs. Brilliant. My wife took the chicken "espetada", too big for her. Enjoyed the dinner.

Had a nice Steak with Chips and then they bring 'catering tomato sauce' in an ALL GOLD bottle! This is not on! I expect this from a corner cafe and not from a well known restaurant chain.
