Popped in without a booking, it was quite busy and the staff where excellent and experienced. Did the unthinkable and tried something new, must say I was quite impressed the food was delicious and the atmosphere was great, chilled and relaxed.

Fantastic menu, loads of unusual toppings . Great pizza too for those that don't fancy their amazing burgers. Service was prompt. Cleanliness needs a little work, especially where the toilets meets the kitchen entrance - just mild criticism. Would visit again. :)

We had a dinner there on our first day in Cape Town and fell in love with this place!!! We liked everything - the atmosphere was cozy and friendly, the service was quick and attentive, the price was reasonable and, of course, our French fries and burgers (The Original Royale and The Ranch) were really delicious! 😊🍔🍟After this evening we...

Amazing burger, super super friendly and attentive staff. The dessert chocolate waffle wasn't that special so I'd skip dessert. Very reasonably priced too,

This is a good place for a quick burger with a big selection. The gluten free burger was good and the service is not dissapointing.

Poor lighting, rushed service and really dry, uninspiring Burgers make this Joint a true disappointment. Fries soggy and taste old - perhaps fried in old oil? Presentation bland. Long wait for a sub standard, casual meal.

Originally we had plans to have dinner at Twaalf, but they had a private party going on. Walking around trying to find a place to eat, we stumbled on this great burger joint. Great service, even with all tables occupied. Good craft beer selection and a wide variety of burgers, at a reasonable price, as always is at burger joints... More

Fantastic place! Very centrally located and a happening spot. The burgers ARE amazing.. Lots of choices with top notch fixin's. However, if you dont state that you want it WELL done, it will come back completely pink in the middle. Like, borderline raw beef chuck. My husband said the menu does inform you that they are on the rarer side;... More

Description
Hudsons drew its inspiration from America styled diners but with a modern twist... Black and copper Tom Dixon lights, leather booths, mounted animal horns and New York city street maps. It sets the tone for your urban consumer with its raw wooden tables and old-school chairs, a novel space where ideas and trends emerge over gourmet burgers and ingenious flavored milkshakes (salted caramel, lindt brownie, home-made fudge). Beer and burger, go hand in hand-literally! Each burger has a story, its ingredients, name and recipe are all hand selected and perfected by the owner, Ross and David. It is simple recipe, a beef patty made with the finest cuts of beef topped with the freshest ingredients that were locally sourced. Gourmet, foodie or innovative call it what you will it's just damn good burgers topped with thought-provoking combinations that result in gastronomical mayhem in your mouth! Biltong, chill cream-cheese, bacon jam, deboned rib or cranberry jelly. If beef doesn't appeal swap it-for a chickpea / lentil, chicken or ostrich patty. And look out for the special edition-every month a burger is created and paired up with one of the thirteen listed craft beers. Home-brewed beer is a must at Hudsons; the Boilermaker is created by Ross in small batches just outside of Noordehoek. Sit down or take-away Hudsons is something you are going to want to repeat. Established in Kloof, Greenpoint and Claremont.
