“Nice lunch joint ... Not fine dining.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

Delicious lunch. A little pricey for what it is. Picture an upscale burger joint with limited ambiance. Sort of like a fast food J. Alexander's. the owner and staff very friendly, almost too friendly. The server needs to keep his fingers out of the open condiments when he brings them to the table.

“Best Hamburger Outside of Beef Country”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Super yummy burger at this locally-owned restaurant. The Gilbert family knows how to deliver wonderful hospitality and delish food! The burgers are HUGE so I asked for a 6 oz. over an 8 oz. It was still too much for this girl.

You go through a line to order but then once you sit down the bring you your food as well as refill your drink. They have Coke over Pepsi products so that was a nice plus.

I had a burger, fries, and a drink for right at $10.00. Not bad for this beach town. Would go back again!

“Good food and friendly owner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

We went in a rainy afternoon and the owner and she had her grown children working in the restaurant that day too. It wasn't too busy so she spent some time showing us her food and deserts. The food was tasty and reasonably priced (except the desert, a bit pricy) . Food portion was also good. I now are looking forward to going back with my other group of friends.

“Never Disappoints!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Gilbert's never disappoints...from the friendly greeting, as you enter, to the perfectly cooked burger delivered promptly, to the table. This visit we (2 of us) each had the regular burger; I ordered sweet potato fries and my husband had the regular ones. As with the burgers, they were delicious.
If you're looking for a great burger, in Ft. Lauderdale, look no further than Gilbert's!

“Lunch type burgers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

This was a highly rated restaurant but we were disappointed in the quality of the fries. My sweet potato fries were so dry they were hard to chew. My husband's fries were also not great. The chicken cheese bun i had was tasty but I would not go back to this restaurant again.
