SA loves Spur, survey shows

Cape Town - Following a public poll conducted by Acentric Marketing Research, Spur Steak Ranches has been voted South Africa's top restaurant chain with the best-tasting food and best-value pricing, bizzcommunity reported.

The survey that covered 21 restaurant  chains saw the favourite family eatery beat its competitors on food and pricing, as well as on several other factors. These included service levels, the enjoyment experienced by its patrons, the perceived image of the brand and convenience.

According to bizzcommunity, these results, for the first quarter of 2012, are echoed by the views of the younger generation following the Sunday Times Next Generation survey for 2012, in which the group was once again voted South Africa's "coolest eat out place" in a national sample of respondents aged 8 to 22. This year marked the eighth consecutive time it has topped the youth polls.

Spur [JSE:SUR] has 248 restaurants in South Africa.

The group also has 36 outlets worldwide, with restaurants in 11 African countries, in Mauritius, Dubai, the UK, Ireland and Australia.

    Clearly most people dont have pallet for good taste. I think its repulsive to say the least!

      Depends what you looking for in a place, for the service it doesn't hurt the pocket much really like the atmosphere there especially on match days

      A pallet for good taste means you can still enjoy even the everyday . If not you're just pretentious and kommen.....

    Bleh!!! Spur re-uses that tomato and lettuce that you get on your plate and you know when some people have that habit to lick that bit of sauce on edge of the bottle after pouring... and that salad dressing of spur is 'hoeka' so nice... And some spur's pre-pour the choc sauce on their sundays when it is suppose to be HOT choc sauce! SPUR SUCK!!

    I couldnt agree more,albeit Expensive and either Small or Diminishing Portions dependant on certain outlets. Great Brand nevertheless.

    I think the Spur is a really good restaurant, but I feel, if you not eating their breakfast( which won't be so cheap once they've managed to reprogram us consumers to associate the Spur with breakfast as well as a steakhouse!) Or the burger special, its no longer that cheap!

    I'm sorry but I have to disagree. The food is expensive. You can go to a fancier restaurant and pay the same price and the quality is better. The service is shocking. Some places you have to give your order 3 times and the waitron comes back to ask if its correct. My favourite is when you get your food its not what you wanted. The kids food is terrible. The chicken nuggets are so dry. Has anyone looked under a table when they sit down. I've seen waiters wipe stuff off the table and it lands on the floor. I haven't gone to a spur in years because of this.
