My wife and I popped in for a breakfast as part of our Sunday morning bike ride. I decided to have an omelette with mince. Now I realise that this is not on the menu but to pay R63 for a pathetic little omelette with so little mince that if I found any I would have won a trip to... More

This review is for the Wimpy in the main road of Magaliesburg the town NOT the one near Hartbeespoort - We stopped here for breakfast and were completely disappointed in the service we received. The place seemed understaffed and our breakfast took over 2 hours to arrive and then one of the burger patties was still completely raw! Would not... More

I had a Mega Breakfast here today, 2 eggs, bacon, tomatoe and a burger patty. The food was good but the service by Johanna was poor. The other waitstaff seemed more caring. This Wimpy is well-situated on the main road, parking available.

We were ready for dinner after an early start in Capetown, a flight to Joburg, a visit to Apartheid Museum a walking tour in Sowto and the drive to Magaliesburg. Not much choice at 7.30 pm but we do not regret dining at Wimpy.

Hopefully this is the right Wimpy I'm reviewing. My review is for the Wimpy at Mountain Lake Shopping Centre, Broederstroom. I have been here several times for breakfast in the past. It's fast, friendly and really inexpensive (especially paying in Pounds - even with the 'cheap' version). The place is clean, child friendly and I usually sit outside where the... More
