Founded in July 2013, RocoMamas has fast become one of the trendiest restaurants in South Africa, garnering a loyal following of burger enthusiasts. Their brand position of “Not Normal” is evident in their funky décor, rock ‘n roll vibe, unique menu items and an open-style kitchen where customers can see (and smell) the meals being prepared. This new concept is a result of the growing appetite for hand-made food and a more personalised dining experience. Customers can sit down and soak up the laid-back vibe with a burger, ribs and wings or choose to order a takeaway thanks to the speedy service. RocoMamas has a menu that goes far beyond your typical burger joint; it’s all about customisation.
Famous for their artisan-style “Smashburgers”, the franchise also serves chicken wings and ribs as their core offering. The Smashburger concept originated from the United States and refers to the process of smashing a ball of ground beef on a hot grill to seal in the juices, rather than squeezing them out. This results in a medium to well-done burger that is very juicy. Many customers will testify that once you’ve tasted a Smashburger, there’s no going back to ‘normal’ – something that RocoMamas prides itself on not being. The eatery is known for its limited edition burgers, which come out in threes every month or so. And to boot, RocoMamas Melrose Arch is halaal.
Not a milkshake but a ‘G Shake”, RocoMamas serves several mouthwatering options such as Oreo, Peanut Butter and Cherry Cola, to name a few. They’ve also come up with some unusual flavours that are Instagram worthy! Characterised as a milkshake with a bit more body, the Freak Shakes are decadent to the nines, heaped with creamy goodness and complimenting toppings. In the waffle department, customers can expect creations such as Nutella, Cookies and Scream and Classic Ice Cream.
RocoMamas looks forward to keeping the brand true to its core values and distinctiveness that customers unquestionably love. A combination of unique menu items, a trendy dining atmosphere and a bill that won’t break the bank makes RocoMamas a winning recipe for success in South Africa.
