  • It's burger, ribs & chicken wings time! But be warned - no aircon guys, and set outside on a verandah, so be prepared to brave the humidity if you go during summer. Never fear though because at Union Square you will be swiftly seated, welcomed and cooled right down with an ice-cold beer, glass of wine or cider. Then once you’ve acclimatised sufficiently, you can order your rack of ribs, burger, chicken wings (or a salad if you really must). It reminded me a lot of Rocomamas, because they too are a ribs, burger and wings joint, and they also use the same ordering concept where each guest is given a menu which must be filled in and given back to the waiter. You complete your name first (which I like filling in as L-Dog, cos I like hearing the waiter confusedly ask for L-Dog when my food arrives) and then add any special requests or messages to the Chef. I like to try and make the kitchen staff smile with my message. Haha. Yes – life’s little pleasures. Then you tick off what dishes you want, what toppings you want, what marinades you want, what sides you want and you can even build your own burger. I’m not a massive burger fan, but any place that has a lamb burger on their menu gets my vote! Or a pulled pork Bun….oooooo…. And when they add fine little details like smokey mayo or Harissa mayo (a hot Moroccan mayo) instead of just regular mayo, and caramelised onions instead of just plain fried onions, well that’s what will set them apart. I started with a Fiery Dragon Ginger Beer, which was beautifully fizzy, frosty and fabulous with a kick of not only ginger, but just a touch of alcohol too ;). My eyes were darting from the ribs to the wings, from the wings to the ribs, and then finally I decided to just order the combo deal. The waiter recommended the BBQ marinated ribs so I went for that, plus the per-peri wings. Wow! Such tender, juicy, meaty and flavourful ribs & wings. I won’t mention names, but so SO much better than another ribs, wings & burger joint I know. Craig decided to take advantage of the option to assemble your own perfect burger combination. He constructed a gorgeous monstrosity of Smashed beef patty, jalapenos, pineapple, rocket & gorgonzola sauce. He loved it! And he isn’t the easiest to please when it comes to burgers. He also ordered a side of the honey mustard wings. Super saucy and full of flavour! Go there for an early lunch to make sure you get a table, because you can’t book, and plan to stay a while, breathe in the fresh air, have an icy drink, catch up with some mates, order the ribs and wings combo so you don’t feel like you’re missing out, then get your mate to order a burger so you can distract him and get a bite of that too. The complex has parking so this is one place you won’t need to uber to (if you have a designated driver or having less than two that is). Arrive alive!

  • A breath of fresh air! From filling in the 'multiple choice'- type menu to the funky layout and design. They serve sizeable portions of tasty meals that are good value for money. Perfect for lunch or a casual dinner. The staff are friendly, clued-up and full of banter. I have yet to be disappointed. Union Square is going places- hopefully to a more scenic location. Move up here to Ballito please guys!
