Description: Hudsons drew its inspiration from America styled diners but with a modern twist... Black and copper Tom Dixon lights, leather booths, mounted animal horns and New York city street maps. It sets the tone for your urban consumer with its raw wooden tables and old-school chairs, a novel space where ideas and trends emerge over gourmet burgers and ingenious flavored milkshakes (salted caramel, lindt brownie, home-made fudge). Beer and burger, go hand in hand-literally! Each burger has a story, its ingredients, name and recipe are all hand selected and perfected by the owner, Ross and David. It is simple recipe, a beef patty made with the finest cuts of beef topped with the freshest ingredients that were locally sourced. Gourmet, foodie or innovative call it what you will it's just damn good burgers topped with thought-provoking combinations that result in gastronomical mayhem in your mouth! Biltong, chill cream-cheese, bacon jam, deboned rib or cranberry jelly. If beef doesn't appeal swap it-for a chickpea / lentil, chicken or ostrich patty. And look out for the special edition-every month a burger is created and paired up with one of the thirteen listed craft beers. Home-brewed beer is a must at Hudsons; the Boilermaker is created by Ross in small batches just outside of Noordehoek. Sit down or take-away Hudsons is something you are going to want to repeat. Established in Kloof, Greenpoint and Claremont.

“Shhhhh, I'm eating!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

Simply delicious gourmet burgers. You make your own burger up which suits the picky foodies like myself. They offer sweet potato fries which are unusually yum. The music is a funky rock n roll buzz in the background and the lighting is a bit dark, so sit outside. The menu is expensive but that is due to the gourmet quality, you get what you pay for. A wholesome delicious meal!

“I would love to review the food, but...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

I would love to review the food here, but I'm not able too and let me tell you why.

My friends arrived at this venue and were quickly shown a seat at the bar (as no tables were available) however they were very quickly forgotten and even after other guests who arrived after we did. Still being ignored, we tried to gain the attention of one of a few waitstaff however we were further ignored when we they walked past...so we left.

Also be aware this particular Hudsons does not accept reservations.

“Late Valentines dinner!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014 via mobile

Went here with my boyfriend for a belated valentines dinner. We both thought these had to be one of the best burgers we have ever eaten and definitely the best in Cape Town. Had a delicious burger with chilli, onion rings and cheese, was incredible. My boyfriend had the burger of the month which has pulled pork and a fried egg. Both were mouth watering. We can't wait to come back again. Desperate to try the milkshakes and the never ending list of delicious looking burgers. Such a great atmosphere and the waitresses are great. I will be coming back and recommending to all I meet!
