    This place is always packed, so If you do not want to eat with peoples conversations in your ear, then this i snot your place. If you rate a place to eat by how busy it is, this place is for you. It feels like home, it is fun, the waiters are great, the food is great, the portions are huge, my kind of scene. Parking can be a bit tricky from Thursday to Sunday but nothing to put you off.

    We have been eating at this restaurant for the past 25 years and still look forward to eating here!! When you have a good management, staff who respect you, good quality food cooked to perfection and a restaurant in a good area, you have the right ingredients for a very successful business. The burgers are delicious and highly recommended!! The 1kg spare ribs are a best seller as is the carvery. The chips and onion rings served on piping hot plates cannot be beaten!! 25 years of our support is just the beginning!! We're definitely sticking around.

    This restaurant buzzes!! The waiters never stop working, the two managers are always around checking, people come and go and it stays busy all the time - I love it!! The carvery is my favourite but they only serve it on weekends and a Monday. The creamy spinach, roast potatoes are super and obviously the meat is great - a choice of lamb and beef. Ice cream and chocolate sauce just top it off!! The rest of the week the juicy burgers are amazing. I like the guacamole burgers or the cheese and bacon burgers. Fabulous chips and amazing onion rings.

    Thundergun has by far the best ribs in Joburg (or probably anywhere in the world). We usually go in pairs and order the 1kg between two of us as it's by far the best value for money and then there's left-overs for the next day. The waiters are great and it's got a lovely personal touch with the owners walking around to say hi.

    It's easy to see that Thundergun is built on a well known reputation!!! The owner appears to know the names and faces of all the regulars and always makes you feel very welcome. This restaurant has been around for a long time and they never fail to deliver Delicious food time and time again.
    The menu is extensive, but appeals mostly to "meat eaters" - the steaks, burgers and ribs are all winners in my book!!! The service of all the waiters is top class!
    If you're in the area, it's well worth visiting. Get there early if you want a table for the evening.

    Good old faithful!! You know that feeling when you know you are going for a meal which cannot possibly be a failure, well, this is the place!! The two owners joke with all the patrons and each time we walk in we feel so welcome. Their spare ribs are an absolute must!!! My fiancé loves the Big Gun Burgers with chips and onion rings - the burger with the bacon and cheese running all over the plate - delicious!!

    Best. Ribs. Ever.
    Thundergun has been in business since long before I was born and my folks often reminisce about me sleeping under the table while they were out to dinner with friends there! They are ALWAYS packed and for good reason. Whether you feel like a burger, a steak roll or a rack of delicious pork ribs covered in the best rib sauce imagineable, this is where you need to be. The staff are amazing and handle the jam packed restaurant with ease, and some of them have been working there since the place opened, so it's great to know they treat the staff well. There have only been two owners I think since they opened their doors and the guys are personally involved in the running of the restaurant so you'll often have a manager or owner come past and check that you're happy. Just make sure you get there early because they don't do reservations after 7pm and there is pretty much always a queue!!

    My family and I have been going to the Thundergun Restaurant for the past 25 years!! Their big gun burgers are absolutely divine!! The bacon and cheese burgers with chips and onion rings are the best. Their carvery is delicious, big fat juicy spare ribs and the staff are amazing. Some of the staff have been there since we started going there. The two owners are "hands on" and check with every single customer that they are satisfied!! Excellent service, good prices, great meals.
