Dukes in Greenside has to be the snazziest burger joint in Joburg! On Wednesdays they serve a South African rock menu, in which 15 of SA’s top rock bands & performing artists (like AKing, Heuwels Fantasities and Jack Parow) ‘designed’ a burger. With offerings like Ostrich with roasted beetroot, blue cheese and pesto to Footlongs, Bunny Cows and Soy Burgers, there is something for everybody. The menu is a much a work of art as the inspired burgers, and you can even have a side of sweet potato wedges! If you have a sweet tooth (and have the space!) you can end your meal with Popcorn & Smatries with Chocolate Sauce, or any of their other creative desserts. Not the cheapest burgers, but you are assured to leave satisfied and stuffed.
PS They don’t have a wine menu yet, so BYO is advised if, like us, you enjoy a glass of red with your burger.
Dukes, 14 Gleneagles Road, Greenside, Johannesburg. 011 486 0824.
