We have eaten at Spur so often - it feels like we could have shares with them already! HOWEVER, a week ago my hubby and I ate there - I think probably for the last time. Spur is incredibly OVER-PRICED and for the same price or less you get get a better meal elsewhere. I do understand that the cost... More

There is really nothing special about Spur. Food is average at best, not cheap. We often have to wait a while for orders to be taken. Unless there is nowhere else to eat, rather find somewhere else.

Our worst experience ever. We had lunch there and the food was awful. The staff were not very friendly. The food was really awful. The bbq sauce looked watered down?? The onion rings lol. They come chopped up. Should be called onions chopped up. The free wifi doesn't work it cuts in and out. Never again Spur!

We went for a 8 am breakfast on a Saturday at Spur, Cresta, Johannesburg. We were greeted by friendly staff and shown to a table of our choice. The restaurant was clean, neat and has attractive décor. The staff is happy and helpful. The service was good and food excellent. There is a playroom for kids. Spur is worth a... More

Great atmosphere for a family breakfast/lunch/ dinner. My children love the place since they were small; they are now teenagers; they still love the place. We enjoyed the meal. The restaurant was busy; but not uncomfortable to sit in. We were ushered to a comfy seat immediately we came in. However; management should ensure they keep an eye on the... More

We had a quick breakfast of toasted sandwiches and coffee. Out of the three orders two were incorrect. It wasn't busy at all.

have been here for dinner (few steps to City Lodge hotel, inside hotel and close to parking lot). Friendly, helpful staff (but do not forget toppings for the salad !). Meat is king: steaks (rupm, sirloin, t-bone, fillet), ribs, interesting combos, burgers and appetizers plus some "healthy" sugestions. Not really "light food", even if there are various options: consider this... More

We used to go often when my kids were younger, not because I enjoyed it but because that's where my kids wanted to eat. I used to enjoy the salad bar for years and the quality declined over the years until the salad bar disappeared and I disappeared for several years as well. Until recently my husband and I decided...

While on Joburg we decided to try out the Spur restaurant and each enjoyed a hamburger. Service was very good and the burger was tasty. We noticed the Spur chain is in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe as well. This is what we would consider a solid family chain restaurant for breakfast, lunch for dinner. It was clean, had a large selection... More
