We’ve all been there. And by there, we mean when the only thing you are craving is a big, fat, juicy burger. That is why we’ve listed 5 of the best burger joints in Cape Town. Yes – this is highly subjective and yes, the Mother City is massive. So, these are just suggestions but in our opinion – quite amazing suggestions.



Located in various parts of Cape Town as well as the option of “order in”. A burger joint with over 20 unique burger creations which include bacon and a side of fries or onion rings already has us interested!  

They also accommodate the vegetarians out there and can replace your patty with a vegetarian one at no additional cost. For those health fanatics, you can even ditch the bun, have your burger served on a bed of lettuce.

Hudsons Cape Town

To top off the perfect meal, they include a “Make Your Own G&T” on the menu, where you can choose your own gin, tonic, and fruit and mix your perfect drink for R69.

As well as a choice of decedent milkshake flavors such as Candy-floss, Salted Caramel Popcorn, and Lindt Chocolate Brownie. How can you resist, right? Be sure not to miss out on their Slider Thursdays or their everyday Happy Hours.

Price range: R60-R150
