I of course found this gem through trip advisor, and as soon as I saw sweet potato fries I was in! I got a simple hot dog with the fries and it was very good! A little pricey considering what I ordered but there were people bringing me condiments and filling up my drink. Very nice staff.

I love when trip advisor sends me to a place and I completely agree! Mom greeted us at the door explained all our options. We had a large party of 10. And everyone enjoyed their food. I had the Brie burger with sweet potato fries and it was fantastic. Other things my family ordered was the salmon, ribs, hotdog (huge)... More

Gilbert's 17th Street Grill has good hamburgers and sandwiches along with unusual and tasty desserts and all with reasonable prices. The friendly owner is often on the premises and appears to have worked hard to create an informal restaurant with consistently good food as well as servers who seem to enjoy their jobs. It is located in a strip mall... More

The owner greeted us and told us all about the menu options, which included many seafood dishes. Our party of six was well taken care of in this bright and cheery place. I ordered the spicy salmon and Cambodian slaw. The slaw had a peanut based dressing. It was delicious. Two of our party had the half pound burgers and... More

Gilbert's is a nice little restaurant and the food is very good, but I think declaring the burgers the best ever is a pretty long stretch. They are very good but they don't really stand out to me as being amazing. It is definitely worth going to, but don't expect burger nirvana.

Reviews were spot on. Nice clean atmosphere in a strip mall. I ordered Brie burger and fries with Key lime pie for desert. Wife had burger and fries with goat cheese and caramelized onions. We could not even eat the hole thing. Great restaurant!
