At 1pm you avoid the overflow crowd and we opted for outdoor seating - served promptly w/the wait staff checking several times to be sure we had all we needed. The small burger was big and tasty and the sweet potato fries different and filling. The place is small, clean, and friendly. I'll go back again.

EAT HERE!!! I can honestly say that I have tasted the best burger ever! Shout out to the folks at Gabby's!! Super friendly and helpful! We all had the Gabby burger which was 2 HUGE patties, 2 slices of cheese, a great bun and great topping choices. The bacon is worth the extra $1.50 and there are FIVE types of... More

I cannot say enough good things about how great my meal from Gabby's was! I got the bacon cheddar burger, and got it on lettuce so I could stick to my low-carb lifestyle. I ordered the smaller seamus burger and could not have been more pleased. It was good size burger and the flavor of the grass fed beef was... More

Do not know what the hype is...paid almost $30.00 for two burgers, two drinks, and one order of French fries. I do not mind paying for good food, but these prices better deliver the best burger I have ever eaten. The place has very limited seating. They cook everything to order. They have a sign telling you to order well... More

I had the Gabby burger, Sarah had the veggie burger, I'm not sure what mom had, but they loved what they got, I inhaled the Gabby burger, loved the fries. The vanilla shake was deelish. The personal interplay amongst the staff was amusing. Only downside? The seating was a patience builder.

The location is a bit odd sort of industrial estate meets Marshalling yards. Busy inside. Efficiently took our orders while we found a table (outside) I had the Gabby burger with some bacon, also a bowl of chili. Very pleasant. It looks a bit of a dive but great food and staff. Try it !!

Great burger! I had the bacon swiss. Delicious. I could not stop eating the fries with the wasabi mayo, though. YUM. YUM. YUM. There's a secret menu on their website--password is seamus (which is one of the burgers and the name of the owner's son; the daughter is Gabby). So glad I took Lyft here on the way to the... More

Excellent burgers! The flavor is terrific and it's cooked to perfection (medium to medium well). Very juicy. I also got chili and that too was terrific. Not spicy but packing good flavor. The only thing I'd say NOT to get is a milkshake. Very runny and lacking any flavor. Highly recommend it here!

This is such a cute establishment and I love how they are true to theirselves, not willing to expand or add locations, but staying simple! My husband ordered a mushroom swiss burger and loved it!!! I had the quinoa burger and it was fairly good. However, I ordered the sweet potato fries and they were so disappointing that I could... More
