Ribs & Burgers Opens In SA



South Africa’s first Ribs & Burgers restaurant opened at Menlyn Maine in late September. A further 20 to 30 locations will apparently open in key metropolitan markets throughout the country over the next three years.

Ribs & Burgers takes the typical burger offering and adds a modern sensibility with a healthy twist. The size and format of the offering will be modified based on the locations chosen.

The best South African free-range, grass-fed beef, as well as free-range chicken will be served. Healthy, delicious sides and salad will be tailored specifically for this market, providing wonderful alternatives for those looking for a lighter meal.
