Among the best beer I found in SAf. Could use more HOPS, especially the IPL and the blond! Staff was great and food was nice.

Every time I fly out of the domestic terminal I've stopped at Wimpy. I now walk right past it and get a much better quality meal at the ACB whenever I travel. Yummy food at all hours--whenever I fly out I always stop.
