Sticky Fingers in Observatory does good ribs with tasty extras like jalapeno poppers, chips and onion rings. It’s quick, well-priced and they have regular specials to look after your wallet. Worth trying.

I had lunch with friends at the ronderbosch branch, the food was scrumptious and we all enjoyed our different meals. The let down was the service, it wasnt really busy but our waitress was forgetting our orders and she never paid any attention to us.

Had an amazing dinner last night & dug deep in those famous ribs at your Rondebosch branch . Can't wait for the Observatory branch to reopen. Will definitely be coming back!
