“Wings and Burgers are off the chart!!”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

Without a doubt one of my favourite Restaurants in the world! I was lucky enough to be able to visit Gilberts every Saturday afternoon for nearly a year due to working on a Cruise Ship that ported in Ft Lauderdale!

They have the best grilled wings in Florida, the juiciest burgers and simply amazing, friendly and helpful staff you could hope to have making your food!

“Excellent burgers, grilled chicken too!”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

We had our first experience and found the tastes terrific, the service levels worth making a return trip back (and we did NOT see the owners!). Also had a great spinach salad with great grilled chicken. The sweet potato fries were not at their best but everything else was excellent.

“Great Service and Food”
Reviewed July 29, 2014 via mobile

Super friendly owners and great food. Really nice buzz in the place found it on here whilst driving through Ft Lauderdale delighted I stopped and went the extra few miles for lunch. Will definitely be back next time I'm in town.

“Tops for Burgers ~ Excellent Service!!”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

A bit difficult to find but It's worth the search. As we entered, a very friendly staff member came out from behind the "self-order" grill counter and explained how the system worked. Pick a special from those listed on the chalkboard or anything from the regular menu placed on the counter top. The printed menu has light fare to full meals. We were there to try the #1 burger as posted in the Ft. Lauderdale Newspaper... the result of a recent survey.
There is a choice of sides to go with the grilled to order prize winner. .

After paying, we chose a booth and waited briefly for another friendly staff member who set us up with real tableware, various condiments.and a beverage. In less then 10 minutes, she was back with our lunch. Yes, the burger is very good. Cooked to perfection and 8 ounces of meat.. NO fillers!
Juicy but not greasy on a not too big or "doughy" bun. My lunch mate ordered fries and I the "to die for" onion rings. We split a pre-made lava cake as a "top off". Satisfied our urge for chocolate but next time will most likely opt for the cookies. Throughout the experience, the friendly server re-filled our beverage glass and made us comfortable. Yes, we will return!
