I eat there every Saturday night for one reason: QUALITY. The burgers are always cooked exactly right, the fries are brilliant and the desserts are to die for (Mrs. Gilbert bakes them herself, every day).

My wife read a review of this hamburger joint and decided to try it when we stayed 2 days in Fort Lauderdale. We were not disappointed. The restaurant provided excellent hamburgers at reasonable prices in a friendly atmosphere. It is a family run restaurant. Mrs. Gilbert greets you when you enter, Mr. Gilbert takes your order and his daughter works... More

Love the care that the staff showed us as guests. Limited menu for a dinner, but the burgers are big and left full.
