Steers Whacky Wednesday

Yes, the Steers Whacky Wednesday promotion is still going strong!


For many years now, Steers has been making my Wednesday something to look forward to with their “Whacky Wednesday” promotion which is a “buy one burger and get one free” deal and although the price has crept up over the years, it is still excellent value.

Steers is SA’s leading burger brand and has been serving South Africans 100% pure beef, flame-grilled burgers and freshly cut chips for almost 50 years. With more than 525+ outlets in operation in 16 African and 7 International countries, Steers makes it’s mark by providing an excellent range of flame-grilled and value-for-money hamburgers.

Steers has won the Leisure Options Award for the Best Burger for 18 years running, and Best Chips for 14 years running.

Steers’ burger range consists of beef and chicken burgers (10% of the menu), all prepared in Steers’ flame-grilled style. There are also several options for vegetarians.

Visit the Steers website, where you can find the closest outlet, see the specials, or browse the menu.

Steers Whacky Wednesday
Steers as we know it is today is part of Famous Brands Group Ltd (previously called Steers Holdings Ltd) which traces its origins to founder George Halamandres who, following a visit to the United States in the 1950’s, returned to South Africa to introduce the steakhouse and franchise concepts to this country.

For a fascinating look at how this happened, visit the Wikipedia entry.

The Franchising Division of Famous Brands comprises about 24 different brands/divisions including  Steers, Wimpy, Debonairs Pizza, FishAways, House of Coffees, and Mugg&Bean. Famous Brands listed on the JSE in 1994.

    I would say you were in the right there. Then again, I have never ordered a Steers Whacky Wednesday special at 2 in the morning. You don’t say if you queried them or spoke to a manager. The Steers in my home town closes at night and opens around 9 on a Wednesday and I have ordered the special at 11am without a problem. For future reference, the Steers Customer Care Line is 0860 22 55 87.

    Hi there – I travelled from Durban last night on Translux and arrived at Mont Rose (near Harrismith) at 1:40 a.m. I ordered a Steers Beef Burger for R25,95 and only got one…? Was it not “Whacky Wednesday” yet…? Was I not supposed to get two for the price of one?
    Kind regards
