Wow! What a surprise to find this place. Food was fantastic. One of the best burgers I've ever had and the other 5 I was with agreed. Mrs. Gilbert was delightful and so friendly, as was the staff. Hamburgers are done just the way you like. Great variety of toppings to choose from. Cole slaw is delicious as are the french fries and sweet potato fries. Place was clean and very well run. If you want a treat after your meal try the rocky road cookie, which is large enough to share with several. We all look forward to returning.

We stopped here because of the wonderful reviews on Yelp and Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. It was more casual then we expected but the food and service did not disappoint. We were greeted by the owner and saw his mom and sister working as well. We ordered our meal and waited a short time before it was brought to our table. The burgers were great and we were checked on a few times by our waiter to see if we needed anything else. I would love to go here again anytime.

Reasonably priced.

Both the wife and I got burgers. You know they are good when after the first bite you are asking yourself "is this the best burger ever"? Cooked perfectly to order. Super friendly staff, and the owner is there to ensure everything is running well and the customers are satisfied. We will be back the next time in Fort Lauderdale.
