Take your pick from over twenty bold burgers, including a number of starters (perfect for sharing, or not!). Or opt for ribs, wings, tacos or dogs, should you prefer.
Cheesophiles can sink their teeth into the gloriously gooey vegetarian cheese bombs to kick off the meal. This decidedly rich, cheesy union of cheddar, feta and mozzarella, which come swathed in layers of crispy phyllo, are deep-fried until golden and served with a tangy mustard mayo. (Here the portions are on the generous side, so sharing is recommended if you want to leave room for the main event). If you’re lactose intolerant, try the corn dogs or comforting Mexican bean soup.
Moving on to the mash-up of all things umami: burgers. The unrighteously named Sweet Baby Cheeses will make the cheese-obsessed, er, melt. It’s a pure, juicy, perfectly cooked beef patty loaded up with a trio of cheeses: cheddar, Swiss and a spicy cheese sauce along with all the trimmings. To round it off is a golden homemade brioche bun with a generous portion of seasoned shoestring fries on the side.
The ‘Lust – Lucy’ burger (part of Jerry’s 7 deadly sins range), proves to be an underwhelming progression from the starter and the Sweet Baby Cheeses. Here, the patty is stuffed with cheddar cheese (a good thing), and topped with slaw and a sesame dressing. It unnecessarily includes fresh, thinly sliced apple. Though ambitious, this burger is poorly assembled (making it harder to eat) and lacks in flavour. Try one of the other phethora of options like the Envy, Monster or the pulled pork burger.
End off your meal with a decadent Lindt brownie, which is served warm with ice cream.
An expansive drinks menu: from shakes and soda floats, beers and wines, to cocktails, teas and hot drinks. Whilst simple, the gingerbread shake is a tasty treat, but could have been better had it come with an actual gingerbread cookie.
Fast and friendly.
Booths and exposed brick walls set the scene in this laid-back, casual diner-style burger joint.
There’s something for every kind of eater: whether you’re a carnivore or a vegetarian, a lover of beer, wine, cocktails or non-alcoholic beverages.
Unassuming but delicious. A variety of their Easy Pickings make for great socialising before mains are ordered. Try the corn dogs, cheese bombs and chorizo croquettes to start the festivities. Whether you’re choosing one of Lucy’s Seven Deadly Sins (a stuffed burger patty), a Cheapskate burger, or the wings with any of its delicious bastings (they come in hot & spicy, smokey BBQ and Jack D), don’t forget to pair them with the onion rings, which is a great option for vegetarians too!
A large variety is available. Craft beers also come in half pints if you're trying it for the first time! Keeping with a social theme, there are jugs of craft beer and cocktails on offer. A special mention must be made of the Pineapple Express – it's refreshing in addition to showcasing our very own rooibos tea. The wine list, while not large, does have enough variety to appeal to the average wine consumer. Most wines are available by the glass and prices are reasonable, preventing hesitation in ordering that second round.
Friendly and enthusiastic. The wait staff are always available when you need them. Even when busy, waiters are still very attentive and easy to find.
Easy-going and laid-back. Perfect to head there straight after the beach, start a night out or for any gathering of friends. Rest assured, there are no airs and graces here. Come as you are, everyone is welcome.
There is something for everyone – burgers, beers, cocktails and heavenly shakes.

These burgers mean business. Patties are 100% beef; no egg, spices or bread crumbs are used. They’re served up on homemade brioche burger buns with fresh sauces – even the chipotle mayo and mustard mayo are made from scratch.
The B.A.F (bacon, avo and feta), Jack D (which comes with sticky Jack Daniel’s basting sauce, caramelised onions and crispy bacon) and the Frenchy (with blue cheese, mushrooms and red wine, mustard and onion relish) are popular options. Alternatively, you could opt for one of the stuffed burgers. Dubbed the Seven Deadly Sins, this range has patties filled with all manner of devilish things. Envy, for example, is crammed with pecans and blue cheese and topped with caramelised apple and bacon – a triumph of decadence with a balance of sweet and salty flavours – while Greed is stuffed with chorizo, cheddar and tomato, and topped with bacon and egg for good measure. All in all, it’s a little overwhelming.
Vegetarians can opt for chickpea patties or try one of two salads. The Greek 'n Popcorn Cheese salad comes with warm, fried, crumbed cheese.
In the event that you have a second stomach entirely for dessert, you could try a Lindt brownie, warm apple pie or caramel corn sundae. You’re on your own here, though: even us trained professionals didn’t have enough room for dessert. (In our defence, we did sample the fried cheese squares as a starter, which are about as awe-inspiring as they sound.)
Beer drinkers are spoilt for choice with 11 beers on tap, including CBC, Devil's Peak, Lakeside and Jack Black. There are also some thick shakes, which can be ordered with a shot of alcohol.
Jerry’s is a hip, cosy hangout with plenty of exposed brick and wood. The restaurant pays tribute to Norman Collins (AKA Sailor Jerry), the founder of modern-day tattooing, and several walls are festooned with his classic swallows, monkeys and anchor patterns. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming – this could very well become your new local.
Service is informal and can be a little sluggish at busy times, but serving staff are very friendly and will go out of their way to fix a problem.
There’s a weekly pub quiz on Monday nights from 8pm, and beer and burger pairing evenings on Tuesdays. Booking is recommended.
