The top 10 steakhouses in South Africa for 2017

The top 10 steakhouses in South Africa for 2017

We love a good steak, Hello Joburgers, and are excited to announce the top 10 restaurants in South Africa to find the best that we have to offer!

Every year, The Wolftrap Steakhouse Championships hunt down the cream of South Africa’s greatest steakhouses – in the ultimate search to find the national champion, and this year, with the public’s support, and their votes, they have selected the top 10 (of which 3 are in Gauteng!)

The next step is to find the national champion, and the judges are hard at work. The 2017 Awards ceremony will take place on 18th July at the current Steakhouse Champion, The Local Grill in Parktown North.

In addition to Awards for the Top Ten Steakhouses and the Trophy for The Wolftrap Steakhouse Champion for 2017, this year there will be further Special Awards, including but not limited to: Newcomer of the Year, Chain Steakhouse of the Year and Steakhouse Legend of the Year.

Here are the three that are Jozi based, for your steak enjoyment:

· The Local Grill, Parktown North, Johannesburg – Gauteng (2013, 2014 and 2016 Champion)

  1. And how do people get to know how/when to vote…. There’s no ways Che, Argentine Grill by Maboneng Precinct is not a top 10!!!!

  2. Hi Sabrina – the winners were chosen by the voting panel put together by Wolftrap Wine. Members of the public voted during April and May, we believe. Unfortunately we do not have a say over who the Top 10 are, as we we did not run the competition 🙂

    Your list lacks credibility and can’t be taken as a proper or true guide. You should relook at what you are doing and your criteria when compiling such a list.

  4. Hi Steven – thank you so much for your insightful feedback. As we are an online magazine, we are just reporting on the Wolftrap awards – we were not involved in selecting the finalists at all, or any part of the competition. We are merely reporting on an article that we thought would be of interest to our readers. Regards.

  5. Top three in Jozi? Looks to me like two of them are in Pretoria…

  6. Thank you for pointing that out – we will certainly look at rephrasing the wording 🙂

  7. The Fat Butcher in Stellenbosch os missing from this list.

  8. Hi Deon – you are welcome to contact Wolftrap about their selection. It is their awards, we merely shared the article as something that may have been of interest to our readers 🙂

  9. Butcher Boys Florida Rd Durban
