Great food at reasonable prices from people who care. Can't ask for more. Chatted several times with owner. I had a salmon with dark Thai curry sauce over an Asian slaw. Awesome spinach salad. Ribs. Burgers. Awesome corn chowder. Highly recommended. We will be back next time in Ft Lauderdale.

Went to Gilberts because of number 1 rating on tripadvisor, It did not disappoint and considering all the restaurants in the Fort Lauderdale area it is quite a feather in the Gilbert families cap. Lenore Gilbert is personable and we saw her check many tables to see if people were satisfied or needed anything.My husband and I both had burgers with mushrooms and onions.They were thick and juicy and the homemade French fries were fabulous.They also make their own passion fruit ice tea. We will be back

A business acquaintance had recommended Gilbert's month or so ago. When we were planning our trip to Lauderdale, we could not remember the name of the place. Found it on Trip TripAdvisor and was shocked that a burger place could be the number 1 restaurant in Lauderdale! We went and this place lived up to the hype. We were greeted by a young lady "Hi, welcome to Gilbert's I'm the daughter" She then went on to introduce the entire family. This level of personal service rarely exists anymore. You see that here the owner CARES! My wife asked if she could have her burger done her way, the reply "anyway you would like it" We both had two of the best burgers EVER! My wife had mozzarella and sauteed mushrooms, the mozza was almost as thick as the burger. I had cheddar and mushrooms on mine. Burgers were perfectly done, very juicy and tasty. I was too full to try the key lime pie that everyone raves about. The only disappointing thing was we wanted another burger on the Sunday of our flight and found out that they are not open on Sundays )-: . Oh well, something for us to crave until our next visit. WE WILL BE BACK!

Absolutely the best burger I've ever had. Very juicy and savory beef expertly cooked. Also met the entire Gilbert family while I was there, and learned how/why they started Gilbert's -- you can tell they were very serious and passionate about the food. We ate there 4 times before flying back to Hong Kong. Definitely will come back, and also get another piece of that monster chocolate-chip-with-everything-else cookie.
