Yeah, we know it’s hard and don’t get us wrong, nothing you’re going to see here is technically healthy. But when it comes to Steers, that flame-grilled goodness and Hero Roll magic, sometimes, we’ve all just got to bite the bullet and give in to the craving

Here’s how you can keep it as low-cal as possible.

What is the healthiest thing on the Steers South Africa menu?

The healthiest main meal at Steers:

You may have thought you could keep a few kilos off by settling for Prince Burger with bacon instead of a full-on King Steers Big Bacon. Maybe you even thought a Hero Roll would be better because it’s long and thin?. You would have thought very wrong.

The healthiest option at Steers out of all of their burgers (beef and chicken) is the very plain Chicken Burger at 1172kj. Similarly to Burger King, Steers flame grills their patties, this does shave off a good few calories.

We didn’t count the “Get Real” Burgers because one by itself would not make a very good main.
