“Very very popular and with good reason”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

The restaurant with a very large loyal clientele

Founded decades ago by the astute Costa it remains a favourite and management are always on hand with a friendly smile and handshake.

I admire their compassion for us senior citizens with their Tuesday special discount offer

I have been served by one the waiters Edward for more than 30 years

“Great service and best ribs ever!”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

We recently had lunch at Thunder Gun, as I was a bit apprehensive when we entered the place, it looked like a Saloon from a Western Movie! Our waiter was Moses and we got incredible service from him. The ribs are by far the best I have tasted and their burger patties are incredible. Pricewise they are moderate. I recommend this place for meat lovers.
