Excellent food at a good price! Must try the 1kg of ribs with portuguese sauce!
Excellent atmosphere! Must go early to get a table!

“GUN BURGER STILL TOPS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

We have been going to the Thundergun for the past 15 years and have never had a bad meal.
The service is normally very good, with the occasional glitch- can be expected anywhere.
Went there last night to celebrate our youngest son's Honours graduation. Five people, one drink each( beer x2, savannah, Becks, fruit cocktail), three burgers and two Carvery's, including a R40.00 tip, total bill R460.00- Great value for money and everyone was full. Their rack of ribs is the best!!!!

Only problem-- You might have to wait for a table, depending on your arrival time..

“Thundergun Steakhouse”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

Very well known to locals, and excellent for carnivores. If you are a pensioner interested in discounts, go on a Tuesday lunch time, but turn up by 12h30.
