I've frequent thunder gun, and I have never been disappointed by them. The ribs are absolutely fantastic, and long with efficient service, this steakhouse will win your heart over.

I've had the steak and burgers too, both are very good but not as outstanding as the Ribs.

Decor is very bland, but the food speaks for itself.

Went to Thunder Gun for Sunday lunch with some mates after having heard a few recommendations. The decor is really old school and nothing fleshy. The atmosphere is authentic and you feel like you are in a place that is steeped in tradition.
We shared some chicken wings, steak and ribs. The ribs were out of this world. You have to try the ribs if you ever do pop in...simply amazing!

Now that is a steakhouse one can recommend! Always full, the interior is not really top class, but the food and the service make up for this. Very friendly waiters, the food arrives very quickly, and it is marvellous. I go there several times when I am in Johannesburg, and I was never disappointed. The best is the price, though, I have never eaten a better steak for this price (and even in much more expensive places). Definitely a recommendation!

This is the place to go in Jozi if you want to have good pub meal. Their ribs are amazing and the service is very good. It's not a trendy pub and the ambiance is not great but it's a good place to go if you are in the mood for good old pub fare. I've been there a few times and they've always been constant. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Whether you choose the delicious spare ribs, steak or kingclip, I guarantee you won't be disappointed. We visit the Thundergun on a regular basis (almost weekly)!
