Amazing. Dominican burger was something else! So was the cookie (if you can even still call it just one cookie) Staff was better than most 5 star restaurants

The food was wonderful. I ordered the grilled chicken and my husband ordered the burger. Everything was great, and the fries were amazing! We were thrown off a little by having to order at a counter when we first walked in, then we sat and the food was brought to us. Very good meal.

We saw Gilbert's the night before and decided it would be our lunch destination the next day. We arrived in the middle of lunch rush, a very, long line. You wouldn't have known it from the staff. They were friendly and efficient, not a single ruffled feather. The view of the plates and scrumptious smells that surrounded us confirmed we... More

I recently ate here with family and friends for dinner while on vacation. The food was excellent and the key lime pie was so good. You can't go wrong with this place.

We had a great experience! The food was great and served in generous portions. The staff was very friendly and attentive. My daughter and I have an allergy to pork. They made sure to clean the grill before cooking our burgers. If you are ever in town I highly recommend that you give it a try. We ate there more... More

Don't eat red meat often, but If I had an option to eat a hamburger I would drive to Gilberts. Lots of options and varieties. Have tried several of the options, don't have a favorite. Cooked perfectly. Fairly priced for quality food. Staff hospitable and friendly. You order your food at the counter, pay and they bring to your table.
