the place is situated in a big market sort of area with various vendors. its crowded and not much seating place. there's people everywhere shopping. I would recommend going there with very small kids or if you are very hungry.

Traveled for some weeks around South Africa and this was one of the best burgers that I have eaten. The beef is fresh and juicy all other topics are fresh and make a good combination. The fries are also great, cut out of fresh potatoes....More

I have had many burgers around Cape Town and it is always difficult to find the right place with the most delicious burger. Woodies definitely rates up around first place. The three burgers I have had at different times have remained consistent.
