I had a craving for ribs so searched for the best ribs in Cape Town. It didn’t disappoint the ribs were very nice. What’s really exciting about this place is that they have over 120 types of milkshakes! Will give it a try next time.

Description
After 2 years of perfecting the perfect burger, we have a range of Gourmet Burgers as well as amazing succulent fall-off-the-bone ribs (pork, beef & lamb). We have just launched another 17 shakes to our already 40 Gourmet Shake range, which include Chocolate Brownie shake, Cheesecake shake as well as a huge flavour of fruit shakes (Blueberry, Summerburst & Black Cherry to name a few) and now also Gingerbread, Malva&Custard and Orange Blossom
