Food with Thought Burger


We don’t just make food. We make food with thought.

Food that is good for the environment, for local communities, and for you. Now more than ever, the world needs more eco-conscious brands, so we’ve pledged to do better for the future of our planet. We’re committed to preparing the freshest meals with quality ingredients. We also tirelessly try to find sustainable ways to produce our meals.

We responsibly and ethically strive to source from eco-conscious suppliers who sustainably manage resources. We make a positive impact on the environment by constantly thinking of ways to reduce, recycle, and reinvent our food packaging. And we always keep your wants and needs top of mind.

All this thought goes into our food, and we never stop thinking about how we can make it even better. That’s why it’s not just food, it’s food with thought.

Food with Thought


Food Safety

At Steers, the safety and well-being of our customers is our top priority. We’re committed to serving our customers the great tasting, high quality meals they expect from us, every time, making sure that the food we serve is always delicious and safe to eat.

The food we serve is fresh, and adheres to the very highest requirements, using quality ingredients while meeting regulatory requirements and international best practice standards.

All Steers restaurants are required to uphold our stringent food safety standards in order to make sure we serve fresh and quality meals. Steers restaurants are audited to make sure that all health and safety requirements are upheld. Our suppliers are also required to adhere to our demanding food safety standards and are independently audited to make sure food safety requirements are maintained at all times.

We take complaints related to our food very seriously and strive to respond to potential health and safety issues related to the food we serve as a priority. It’s important to us that our customers have a great experience at our restaurants and serving you a fresh, tasty and quality meal will always come first and foremost!

Sugar Reduction

To help you make better food choices, we’ve added TruFruit and No Sugar soft drinks on our menu. So, whether you’re ordering your favourite Steers® burger or simply need something to quench your thirst, you can grab a refreshing beverage with no added sugar.

Special Dietary Requirements

There’s nothing quite like the flame-grilled taste of Steers®, from our award-winning, 100% pure beef burgers to our famous hand-cut chips, and ridiculously thick milkshakes. We understand that people have diverse dietary needs, so we’ve created a menu with a variety of meals to suit your dietary restrictions, food allergies, intolerances, or lifestyle choices. If you don’t eat pork, Steers® has got you! Our fully certified Halaal Steers® restaurants will cater to your needs. You can enjoy our flame-grilled burgers with macon (a beef product that tastes like bacon), mouth-watering beef ribs or Ribster Burgers with 100% pure beef rib patties.

Real Welness Burger

We haven’t forgotten our vegan and vegetarian flame-grilled fans. Our Veggie burger is created from a 100% plant-based patty sourced from Fry’s®. We’ve also improved our bun and sauce recipes to exclude eggs, which makes them allergen and vegan friendly.

For our more health-conscious burger lovers, we’ve added the Better For You icon to highlight menu items with low kilojoules such as our chicken burgers, salads, and veggie burger. We’ve also included kilojoule counts on all our menu items. Browse the full nutritional information on our meals here. When you order a meal and are unsure if the meal has an allergen, you can ask our staff in all Steers® restaurants or visit our website for a full allergen information breakdown. We’ve put in all this work to ensure that you can enjoy the real flavour, whatever your dietary needs are.

Sustainability Burger

Sustainable Farming Practices

We care about the future of our planet. That’s why, we ensure that the food we prepare is produced, sourced, and grown in a responsible manner. Like our commitment to sourcing only free-range eggs from farms that care about the welfare of their chickens. These farms allow the chickens to roam freely and they’re never housed in cages. Farmers who treat their brood more humanely believe that happy chickens produce healthier and higher quality eggs. A theory you can put to the test when you eat one of our breakfast meals.

Sustainable Packaging

We’re committed to protecting the environment and reducing our plastic usage. For this reason, we’ve switched to 100% compostable and recyclable eco-cups, and Steers® restaurants have become no plastic straw zones. Even the box your favourite Steers® meal comes in is recyclable and biodegradable. From takeaway bags to burger boxes, chip packets, straws, and sharing boxes, 92% of all Steers® packaging is biodegradable and compostable. We’ll continue to re-evaluate and modify our packaging so that it meets our sustainability goals.

Food with Thought


We don’t just make real good food; we make food that’s good for the environment and local communities too. So, we’ve partnered with local farmers to develop and empower themselves and their communities by providing access to education, employment, and entrepreneurial opportunities.

We Support Local

At Steers®, we support emerging farmers. We source our pork from local pig farmers who supply us with the meat to create our bacon, ribs, and rib patties. This gives our flame-grilled pork meals that home-grown real Steers® taste.

Another home-grown flavour that makes our real food so good is our cheese, which is sourced from the Coega Cheese Plant in the Eastern Cape. The Coega Cheese Plant was created for the benefit, employment, and upliftment of the local community. Employees are provided with training and education to better their skills to reap better rewards for themselves and their families, which ultimately helps the greater community.

From Driver to Business Owner

We know that doing good starts at home. So, in addition to our partnerships with local suppliers and farmers, we also run a learnership programme that guides and supports Steers® truck drivers to becoming independent owners of their own trucks. Our aim is to help improve livelihoods and encourage small business growth in South Africa.
