Not only is the food cooked perfectly but also the owners are so kind and welcome you with open arms. The staff are also nice and attentive. It's a wonderful find for burgers, ribs, salads, and wonderful desserts. Very efficient and friendly service every time that we have been there.

We had pre-arranged a dinner on Friday night with a set manner of three choices chosen ahead of time. We arrived at 7:15 and an area was reserved for our party of 50! The service was exceptional. Everyone commented on how attentive the staff and owner was. The size of the portions was more than anyone could eat. Those who... More

Gilbert's has a variety of burgers, wraps, sandwiches and salads. The food is great and the staff are warm and friendly. Although this is not a full service restaurant, you place your order and it's brought to you, the staff still come by to check on you, refill drinks and clean your table.

We chose this place based on its high rating in Trip Advisor. The set-up is kind of cafeteria style: order your meal, pay the cashier, take your number to your table; an employee will bring the food to you once ready. The food was indeed very good. The lack of full-service may keep the costs down but is a pain... More

Burgers were good, but had to keep adding salt to them...just not enough flavor. However, the fries were very good. Overall, I would come again but seeing that it is ranked number 2 in Ft.Lauderdale for restaurants is a little mis-leading. It's also about $15 bucks a person...which for a burger is a little high in my opinion.

Thanks to all the great reviews here, my family tried Gilbert's for lunch last week. The owner met us at the door, welcomed us, explained the menu and helped us order. Its counter service to order, but you have a seat and they bring you the food, and offer to get drinks, etc for you. She was spot-on when she... More

I drive pretty far to get here for just a hamburger, but it is worth the drive. I so want to try the slice pork sandwich but always wind up with a cheddar burger with grilled onions and mushrooms...Im more apt to write a bad review about a restaurant because I dont want people to get ripped off but in...
