“A must to stop on Route 62”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

We had been told about this place by South African friends, and the story about how it came about is very entertaining. Ronnie himself is a real character. We stopped only for coffee as we were on a long drive to our next destination, but it was well worth it for the 'free' entertainment of looking at the graffitti and underwear left by other visitors! As others have said, it is NOT a sex shop, so family friendly during the day.

“Great Breakfast, Great Stories, Amazing place”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Pulling over for breakfast is usually done at a reputable fast food chain. But the Famous Ronnie's sex shop from now on will always be on the list if driving the majestic R62 in Sout Africa. Great service. We had a delicious breakfast. Friendly staff who are always willing to tell you a story or two. And we were lucky enough to actually meet Ronnie and hear how the place started out. i can now say i've been there, done that and literally got the T-shirt.

Note for the Ladies. Pack an extra pair of underwear and join the tradition of having them hung up above the bar.

“Must stop here for a visit! NOT a sex shop!”
Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

We were driving through the Karoo when we came across Ronnie's Sex Shop and we just had to stop in for a look.

There's a bar area with lots of bras and bikinis hanging up that people have donated over the years. It's a very quirky bar. We stopped for a beer and then we sat outside and had a burger and chips.

The staff/owners are very nice and they strike up a conversation with you.

It was a bit surreal coming across a place like this in the middle of the Karoo and nothing else around for miles. That added to the mystique.

Drop in if you happen to be passing, it's not far from Barrydale.

Reviewed February 22, 2013

Should you stop or not. Definite. Friendly service and unique for everyone. For some bizarre, but for the most real. A icon n this area and worth a visit.
