Guys I went to McDonalds and they refused to sell me a Whopper. I shouted loudly into my vape and drove off in a cloud (vape cloud, not tyre smoke). I’m a nice guy and would never insult anyone so I didn’t take it up with anyone because then they will rob me blind whilst I’m trying to watch Netflix in the parking lot of my bank who closed just because it’s a Sunday.

I’m leaving the forum. I can’t deal with all this opinion-sharing.

The ladies at my local shop always try to add a extra bottle of 2L milk to my bill when I buy a bottle. And every time I ask them about it they just say oh sorry.

Told the manager a few weeks ago and he said they are busy taking care of it as many people have complained about stuff getting added. Still see the same ladies working there, so not sure what has been done..

Some people are just skelm.

Spur is just overpriced cardboard and bland sauces. Go to a proper restuarant or hire a cook for your home if your wife can't cook properly.

Not the first time. The waiters there is more like failed casino dealers than proper waiters. I have had numerous issues with cold food, waiting an hour for my food when the place is nearly empty etc etc over the years before the renovation and after.

I just stopped eating there and go straight to chow in the Prive'.

This doesn't mean I am boycotting spur :) , most other spurs have been fine for me. There is something about their burger patties that taste uniquely spur that I just got so used to over so many years that no other burger joint can replicate. :p

I don't even remember that, there was one in Strand which later changed to a Black Steer and then nothing, nada. The Spur is still here, but not the same since the old moustache days ;)
It was Strand or Gordon's Bay. One of the 2.

I only go to the Indigo Spur at the Waterstone Village Centre, Somerset West. Just because the service is above than the normal Spur average and that kids have more to do there than in any other Spur in the vicinity.

The burger patties, I don’t remember when Spur had good burger patties. It is so bone dry nowadays that it is like eating cardboard. Burger King makes better burgers than Spur at the moment in my opinion. Steers is giving Spur competition, then you know.

A group of friends & I went to Spur.

We had a rude & unprofessional waiter.

I always tip, even when I get crap service. I am a softy.

Anyway I tip him about R10 because of his attitude.

Brings the point of sale machine to me, tries to tap my card for instant payment but I have an old card.

I always look at the total before entering my pin.

He increased his tip by a further R20..(on top of the R10 I was tipping him for bad service)

I asked him to adjust the price to what I agreed to pay on the slip. He was hesitant to do so.

I was pissed off & felt taken advantage of, so I asked to pay the total of the bill without a tip.

Will never go to Spur again.
First mistake :ROFL:

But... you are saying all of the waiters at each and every spur is kak. Which can't be the case.

I must have been blessed where I am from. I tend to eat at Spurs in the Durbanville area and never had a single dried out patty ever. Always nice and juicy along with the uniquely spur taste.
