We had just over half an hour to enjoy breakfast before our flight. The friendly waitress made sure our breakfast was served quickly. There was more than enough time to enjoy our meals before we had to board for our flight

Shocking service. Cannot comment on the food as after three quarters of an hour of trying to call a waiter and being ignored, we went elsewhere.

We arrived at the Oliver Tambo International Airport during an exceptionally busy period from 3-5pm. The service at Wimpy was good and staff were patient and friendly throughout. The aircon was either not working or non existent as a number of patrons complained about the heat. While staff were no doubt equally affected, they kept on serving with a smile.... More

My wife and I both had the bacon cheeseburger. The burger was billed as 90% beef, but I would be surprised if it were 50%. The fries were good. Our shakes soon wilted.

We went to get breakfast before our flight. There was a table not cleared and we waited for someone to clear it. When no one was forthcoming - feeling their morning conversations were more important, I went and requested they clear it so we could sit in the only available table outside for four. I was told someone would come.... More

I usually stop at Wimpy in domestic departures for a quick breakfast before a flight. Today's service was horrible. I ordered the avo and feta on toast and the toast was cold and chewy - clearly sitting in the serving counter a while before brought to me. When I complained I was told it is served cold. Really disgusted -... More

We went for breakfast before the flight. The service is quite quick if we compared with another branch in Bronkhorstspruit. We tried best of both and it was nice.

I must say that i'm usually skeptical eating at Wimpy's. While at the Airport we tried the Veggie wrap containing Grilled mushrooms, red pepper & onions, feta cheese, spicy guacamole with sweet chilli sauce. It tasted as tempting as it sounds. Love their Milkshakes too.

Not sure where Wimpy is aiming their franchise, they seem to be trying to become a steakhouse. The food is still ok, but nothing spectacular, yet the pricing seems to think it is. Portion sizes are dropping, and prices rising. Nearly R60 for a promo price for a cheese burger and chips?? Bored staff and an empty restaurant tell me... More
