“SUPER atmosphere however drinks could be cheaper”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

excellent Saturday night dinner venue with friends!

great hosts/managers who regularly made sure that our table was happy!

however - the drinks (cocktails specifically) are a bit costly so just make sure that you read the menu properly unless you want to get a bit of a surprise at the end of the evening when your bill arrives.

great burgers :)

“Eye Candy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Went to Beefcakes with friends for dinner. The atmosphere is great. The waiters and barmen are gorgeous. The burgers however weren't all that fabulous. Overall its a great place for an "ok" bite to eat, a couple of drinks and some fun.

“Body shots?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

OK, so this place can get a bit rowdy at night, but it's a TON of fun. Andrew the owner and the staff are always friendly and welcoming.
A large selection of burgers, I've tried a few, like ; Buffy the burger slayer and Muscle Mary :)
Gay owned and operated and a huge gay following, shows on the weekend and a disco downstairs in the basement.
Beefcakes welcomes anybody, even kids but rather bring them during the day.
They have now opened in Illovo, Johannesburg, I had a good time there on Saturday.

“fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

the burgers are sort of tapas style, you get the basic burger and then all of the trimmings are separate..fun cabaret show, gets crazy with body shots on young waiters later

“Fun, Fun, Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

This place is lots of fun with a wonderful campy atmosphere. The boys are good looking, the entertainment hysterical, and the audience gets to join in on the fun. It is not for everyone, but if you want to have fun in an alternative environment, this is definitely a place to check out.
