We went for breakfast before the flight. The service is quite quick if we compared with another branch in Bronkhorstspruit. We tried best of both and it was nice.

I must say that i'm usually skeptical eating at Wimpy's. While at the Airport we tried the Veggie wrap containing Grilled mushrooms, red pepper & onions, feta cheese, spicy guacamole with sweet chilli sauce. It tasted as tempting as it sounds. Love their Milkshakes too.

Not sure where Wimpy is aiming their franchise, they seem to be trying to become a steakhouse. The food is still ok, but nothing spectacular, yet the pricing seems to think it is. Portion sizes are dropping, and prices rising. Nearly R60 for a promo price for a cheese burger and chips?? Bored staff and an empty restaurant tell me... More

Average Service. Food on par with other Wimpy in South Africa. Reasonable priced breakfast. Coffee not so good

Took my Grandchildren to ORT for an assisted passenger flight to Durban. Parents/ guardians who have done this understand the formalities, time deadlines and stress involved. Hoped for quick breakfast at the Wimpy turned out to be a disaster after explaining our time deadlines and getting an assurance that 45 minutes was enough for 4 breakfasts, we had to ask... More

I think it's the best Wimpy in the whole of Mzansi! I always eat there on my way, I have tried other restaurants at the airport but Wimpy is the best! Ironically I never go for Wimpy when I'm in town, the services there are not good at all! Keep the good work up Wimpy O.T Tambo!!

We ate at Wimpy after a tiring 8 hour flight with 4 children and my 70 year old mother. Lerato was very friendly and full of jokes, he lifted our tired spirits in no time! He takes a lot pride in his work. Ask for him by name you won't be disappointed. Thanks Lerato we left with a smile!

I travel to SA at least once per year and Wimpy is always my first stop after immigration. I get free newspaper for the stand outside, take a seat in the smoking room and have a quick cigarette, coffee, and breakfast before my connecting flight. A ritual for me and a welcome break after 12 hours on a plane. There... More

This is for the Wimpy in Departures! Service: The waitress was one of those that would rather be in 1000 other places than serving one. I had to request the breakfast menu which arrived with the same attitude My coffee order was taken &, before I could place my food order the waitress walked off with the result the coffee... More
