Mad Giant, Taproom Review

I have always wondered, where in Johannesburg one can find a good barbecue and I have finally found that place. Welcome to Mad Giant, Taproom at Delta Corner, 96 Conrad Drive, Blairgowrie the most delicious barbecue in town. The Taproom serves up slow smoked barbecue meats with craft beers, classic cocktails, and wines. The melt-in-your-mouth brisket, short rib and pork belly will definitely have you going back for more!

Their meats are slowly smoked, which give their barbecue a distinctive and delicious taste. They also manage to steal the show with their delicious sides like the Loaded-Cheese Potato Wedges with Beer Burnt Ends, Famous Fries and Tenderstem Broccoli with lime and garlic sour cream.

It’s really hard to pick a favourite here, but pop by for the Lamb On the Spit early on the weekend if there’s any left. Everything on the menu is just phenomenal.

Here are some dishes to try:

9 Hour Peach wood Smoked Beef Short Rib

Smoked Wagyu brisket

Southern Fried Chicken Burger 

The Taproom has a fun laid back atmosphere and the service is very professional and friendly. You can pop by for a visit from Wednesdays to Sundays for lunch until late. You can look at spending anywhere between R150 – R250 for a meal and drink per person.
