Description: Voted the BEST BURGERS in Naples, Brooks Gourmet Burgers is a must stop for locals and visitors. With over a dozen different burgers to choose from, customers can't go wrong. The Mexican Burger (chili, raw onion and cheddar cheese), the Donut Burger (a family favorite) and the Pesto and Goat Cheese are just a few of the long list of choices. Brooks Gourmet Burgers also offers all of the different styles as a Turkey Burger, Veggie Burger or Chicken Breast. Located just north of Fifth Avenue South, Brooks Gourmet Burgers also offers homemade soup, salads, great appetizers (wings, fried pickles, and buffalo fire fries), sandwiches, sides (try the famous Brooks Burger Chips) and Chicago Vienna Beef Hot Dogs. Beer, wine, milkshakes and fresh brewed iced tea are also available. The family owned restaurant strives to provide delicious food, a welcoming atmosphere, and even better service. Stop in for a burger and shake. You won't leave disappointed!

“Not as good as expected”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

The reviews had us expecting way to much. The burgers were overcooked. They were good, but not great. But the huge disappoint was the batter dipped frozen french fries. Terrible. The service was good and the people nice. We won't go back.

“I Don't Understand The Glorious Reviews”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

After reading numerous positive Trip Advisor reviews about Brook's Gourmet Burgers, we thought we would give it a try. We were somewhat disappointed. I just don't understand the many glorious reviews from my fellow contributors at Trip Advisor.
We felt the burgers were just okay..... not great..... just average..... They are not nearly as good as Five Guys. Moreover, Brooks serves frozen fries---- again, not nearly as good as the real fries at Five Guys.
Don't get me wrong, the restaurant is well-managed, friendly and the food tastes alright; but, I've had better burgers at Stan's on Marco Island, Fosters at Gulf Coast Mall and any Five Guys in the surrounding area.

I just don't understand the hype about Brooks.

“All about the burgers”
Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

Given all the great reviews we had to try Brook's and we weren't disappointed. A Todd's Way and a Hottie, both excellent burgers and just right for a Saturday lunch before heading off to the airport! Service is good but don't expect high levels of cleanliness, the table cloths are next due a wash in June 2013, but then again.... it's all about the burgers!

“Why the hype”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

We tried this place for lunch. A good selection of burger types. Pleasant friendly service. We found the burgers OK but nothing special or particularly deservous of all the accolades. Also the place looks as if it needs a clean.....carpet flooring in a diner? It is also in need of a reno, but maybe this is what a downmarket burger joint is meant to look like.
