Went to Beefcakes twice and had a great time. The boys are friendly and chatty. I was amazed to see so many girlies paying the boys to lick them all over

Beefcakes is a great concept restaurant, but the food is not brilliant. Burgers are fairly meaty and the chips were overly salted. Drag show was charged for and the waiter did not inform us of this charge. Drag artist was mediocre at best but fun to watch. Service was uneven especially with half the waiters landing up on stage bearing their abs!!

If you want to go to the beefcakes, please do not go there for the food. The waiters are cute and friendly, the shows are very entertaining and there is a big BUT. It would be great if the restaurant would keep up the cocktails (barely alcohol), the wine (white wine served at room temparature with a bucket of ice) and Hamburger with the level of entertainment. Unfortunately both my friend and I got violently sick after visiting the Beefcakes which could have been either the Burgers or the sparkling water we had.

All in all, it is a fun place and go there for entertainment.

Having heard all the hype we were very much looking forward to visiting however it was all round quite a let down. The waiters are obviously the biggest plus point of the place however some of them are clearly not hired for their level of service or ability. The burgers themselves were probably the worst food we've eaten in cape town. The lettuce leaves were rotting on the plate, the meat ( as promised) was cooked medium but held no texture and was very greasy. The coleslaw also seemed to taste of very poor quality ingredients. Beefcakes obviously has a captive market however the quality of the food seriously let's the place down. On a plus point the cocktails are reasonably priced and actually very well made!

I love Beefcakes and have been there many times before, but this was the first time I took my boyfriend there. He loves a good burger and these are quite spectacular, not only delicious but there names are hilarious! We had 2 burgers called “Brokeback” and “Buffy the hamburger slayer” – so funny! If you are ever there, read their menu and cocktail list and you will surly be entertained.

This is a restaurant in Greenpoint, situated on the fan walk in Somerset Road, they are open for lunch and dinner and some nights have cabaret shows while you dine. I have also heard a rumour of a club downstairs…

Always fun to go here and highly recommended for their food!
