Burgers not as good as they once used to be. Their refusal to honour Entertainer deals on their Slider burger menu left a bitter after-taste on an otherwise average meal.

The Cape Peninsular was being buffeted with 50kmh winds and so we decided against the Waterfront choosing rather to go into town for supper. Kloof street was chockablock with people and cars everywhere. Hudson’s by comparison have a parking garage across the street which was...More

From the moment my friend and entered thre waitress was curtious and proffessional. The only downfall of the get together was that the menu didn't specify that chips isn't served with the burger.

Service is not fantastic, but it is a chilled vibe amongst the staff and patrons. They make really nice burgers, really really good. I did think the bun was a tad dry, but okay. Can't have it all hey. Good place for a burger I...More

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.
