Jozi Lunch/Dinners

GBC | The Great Burger Company, Illovo


Every time I drive by this place I plan a visit and finally got to try it out! So nicely located on the Corlett/Oxford corner in Illovo, the restaurant’s decor is done in an American diner type style. Unfortunately it was rather quiet for a Tuesday night but it had an inviting atmosphere anyway.


Our waiter was a star from beginning to end and I loved that we got popcorn on our table as a little snack. We were even given little samples of their new ‘Birthday Cake’ gourmet milkshake to try, which left us wishing for more!


Choosing food left me in a bit of a dilemma as it all sounded so good.. They have an array of starters (R45-R55), salads (R90-R130), build-your-own burger , single or double burger (R55-R140) options as well as chicken wings and ribs.

We settled on the sliders (R75) though, because that way you get a bit of everything (chicken, lamb & beef) and we were not disappointed. We also ordered a side of sweet potato fries which were nice and crispy – compared to what I am used to. The rolls were nicely toasted and the meat was perfectly cooked.


Overall a lovely, relaxed evening and I will be back to try out their regular sized burgers, curly fries and delicious milkshakes!
