Always hunting for the best burger spot or the trattoria with the most epic Italian food? The top casual restaurants for 2019 have been announced at the Eat Out Mercedes-Benz Best Everyday Eateries, which took place this month in Joburg on 17 September and Cape Town on 25 September respectively. 

This is the fifth year that the country’s favourite restaurants were rewarded for their consistently good food. After a year-long voting period and adjudication process, the top eateries in each category were determined by public ratings received via the Eat Out app and website, in conjunction with scoring from professional Eat Out critics. Don’t have the Eat Out app?

“There’s nothing like nipping out to your favourite local eatery, where you know your favourite dishes will be consistently prepared the way you like them. We love the fine-dining heroes of the Eat Out Top 10, but these awards celebrate the everyday places whose great service, lovely food and friendly welcome keep us coming back again and again,” says Adelle Horler, Eat Out Editor in Chief.
