Saddles (Bellville, Durbanville)

Value for money is a priority for the legendary steak ranch, so it’s no surprise that Saddles is still running its Famous Monday Burger Special, which sees selected burgers on offer for half price.

Slug & Lettuce (Durbanville, Century City)

Wednesdays get a little wild at these outlets as they offer two-for-one “slug burgers” all day. Fortunately, these are not the “garden variety” and feature 200g of the best grain-fed South African beef (which can be substituted for chicken), flame-grilled, basted and served on a lightly toasted bun.

Sotano (Mouille Point & CBD)

What better reason could there be to get out on hump day than a 2-for-1 Lamb Burger special. The deal is on offer every Wednesday from 17:00 at both branches, but at the Bree street outlet you can bite into your burger while enjoying some reggae beats provided by The Rivertones.

Tony’s Roma (Table View)

Over on the West Coast, you’ll find this hidden gem where, on a Monday, a cheeseburger and chips will set you back just R49 or you can double up with two cheeseburgers and chips for R95.

The Village Idiot (CBD) ? 

The Long Street hot spot has renamed Tuesday to Two’s Day and with good reason! It offers two Pulled Pork burgers, topped with homemade coleslaw, and a jug (you read that right) of standard lager or pilsener for R130. And, to tempt Mother Nature, The Village Idiot also runs a Rainy Days special. For R90 you can pull in to escape the rain and enjoy a Boerie or Veggie burger with a glass of house wine or Budweiser. This deal is also available on First Thursdays.
