Just popped in for a beer as the hotel I was staying in had a dismal selection. What a pleasant vibe and the food looked and smelled great. I'll be back for a burger on my next trip. Barman was also friendly and accommodating.

If you want a new twist on the old burger routine, pop over to Hudson's for an ostrich burger. You can request any burger with ostrich meat instead of beef. (Ostrich looks and tastes a lot like beef - more tender and with less fat)....More

Definitely recommend the food. The menu has a lot of variety, had the slides which is great if you don't know what you want. It's a pity the sides are extra. The service can be better.

Had a nice dinner at the place, friendly staff and the food was nice. Located on the edge of a major highway getting to it is not difficult.

Big milkshakes, big burgers, big onion rings – big smiles! This branch is also a bit less busy than the branch in Green Point, which means you'll probably always get a table (touch wood!). Tip: Parking in Kloof Street is a nightmare – so save...More

Husband and I saw this was a good burger place online and we are so glad we stopped. Good energy and food. Try the mac and cheese croquettes with truffle sauce and the strawberry floss shake!

I'm American, so this wasn't the most interesting place for me. The food was good, but nothing mind-blowing. Lots of burger options on the menu. I appreciated that. Sides were extra, but they were good.

We had a really good meal here on our first night in Cape Town. It's really casual and easy going. The burgers were great and the the cheesy chips are fantastic! The staff were really helpful and easy on the eye! I would definitely eat...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.
