I have nothing but good comments on this restaurant. It was our second time there. We had a caesar salad and it was great. The owner is very friendly and she makes her best to deliver a great service. We will go there again.

“Great food, outstanding service”
Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

We arrived just ahead of a throng of customers --- over 20 people lined up behind us. I remarked to the cashier that this place is just as popular as the Trip Advisor reviews said and he replied, "All these customers are great, but I do worry. I don't want anyone to think that because we are popular, we are paying less attention to quality. I assure you we are going to give you a great meal, even if we are really busy." WOW! He was genuinely concerned about living up to expectations ---- and the meal we enjoyed was just as delicious as all the reviews described. Even more noticeable was the service and the way the staff worked as a team. For a "fast casual" establishment, the attentiveness and friendliness was better than what I have experienced at many a white-table-cloth restaurant. I attempted to get my own plastic ware and was greeted by a server who said with a smile, "you don't have to worry about getting any of this --- we'll bring everything you need when your dinner comes out. Just go relax at your table and we take care of the rest." Gilbert's deserves their accolades for great burgers and fries, and if there was an award for customer service and staff awesomeness, then they should get that one, too.

“We need one of these where we live!”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

We walked in the door and were greeted warmly and made to feel very welcome. The gentleman explained everything and answered all our questions. We ordered things ranging from salad and soup to fish and burgers. The portobello mushroom sandwich was great. The burgers were absolutely magnificent. They were juicy and flavourful. Even the fries and sweet potato fires was delicious and memorable. I would run back here in a heartbeat. Do not miss this restaurant on your travels.

“Pretty awesome Burgers”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

The burgers were huge, juicy and delicious, but the best part was the staff and the service, they made us feel like they knew us for years, would go back in a heartbeat.
