If it was not for the kids playroom I would not go to any Spur, food is just tasteless and bland with the same options. Please let we have some stirfry veggies and not just the option of chips and salad and watery veggies.

Family friendly atmosphere, playground for the kids. Food was good, portions were definitely large. No salad bar unfortunately, but then salad doesn't seem to be important in SA.

Nothing like a Monday night Spur burger. No frills, no fuss. Awkward singing. As you have grown up with the burger, fries and onion rings combo you know what you are getting. Can't beat it.

Unfortunately Spur is becoming a below ordinary restaurant. The food is not as good as it used to be, the service is very slow. I now have on two occasions gotten food poisoning after eating at two separate Spurs in Benoni. Its for the kids and that is about all that the Spur has now to offer.

Find that spurs prices are crazy expensive. It used to be an affordable family restaurant but now it's far too expensive They also need to improve their ice cream provider. Ice cream is too watery and tasteless

Well a Spur is a Spur anywhere, I have eaten at the Northmead Square one frequently & it can be said that the food was good as always. But what makes it special is the team of people who make sure you are welcome & provide a service second to none. A good all round family restaurant with a safe... More
