This place is awesome. The owner greeted our large group and walked us through the menu. The burger is really good and the fries (fresh cut) are also delicious. Try the Havarti Burger on English Muffin. Several members of our group ordered dessert as well. The large rocky road cookie is expensive but worth the price. I would definitely return here when back in Fort Lauderdale.

Best burger ever sums it up. Not real fancy and not real expensive, but they really know how to cook a burger. Dined with dear friends. We ordered from the owner who told us to come back to him if we had any complaints. There weren't any. Would dine there all the time if we were from the area.

Post cruise found us near Gilbert's and my curiosity from TA reviews drew us to the front door. Then we ran into Gilbert who personally invited us in for the best burger around. He was so engaging, we followed him inside. Then he introduced us to his wife and son, a true family business. The burgers and fries were great! Just wish I lived closer so I could try her home made soups. Guess I will have to wait for another trip to FL.

I seeked this place out due to the reviews here and my family and I were not disappointed. We were greeted by the owner and served well by the staff. The burgers and ribs were one of the best we had!

We decided to try out Gilbert's since they were number 1 on trip advisor...let me tell you it was worth it. The burger was amazing but the service was the best! Chef Kely was extremely hospitable and friendly. #gilbertsiswickedgood
