Its only for the kids

Unfortunately Spur is becoming a below ordinary restaurant. The food is not as good as it used to be, the service is very slow. I now have on two occasions gotten food poisoning after eating at two separate Spurs in Benoni. Its for the kids and that is about all that the Spur has now to offer.

Find that spurs prices are crazy expensive. It used to be an affordable family restaurant but now it's far too expensive They also need to improve their ice cream provider. Ice cream is too watery and tasteless

Well a Spur is a Spur anywhere, I have eaten at the Northmead Square one frequently & it can be said that the food was good as always. But what makes it special is the team of people who make sure you are welcome & provide a service second to none. A good all round family restaurant with a safe... More

This is a franchise restaurant aimed towards the kids, there is a lot of seating so in busy times the service can become very slow. If you have children ask to be seated close to the play area, otherwise you will spend most of your time away from your table, a suggestion is not to order large meals for the... More
