A 2minute walk from the Embassy Suites Hotel we found this little gem in the plaza behind the hotel. Mid afternoon after an early start and 3 hr flight we needed something to satisfy us and their delicious homemade real beef burgers and kale salad filled the gap!! The owner was welcoming and enthusiastic about her beef and her homemade... More

Considering this place is set up like a fast-food joint, I was pleasantly surprised to wait 20+ minutes for the food after we ordered. It was made-to-order and cooked to perfection. The cod sandwich fell apart it was so tender - highly recommend. All of the burgers that our party had were great. No one was speaking during lunch -... More

We ate lunch here today. It was awesome! We were looking for a quick bite for lunch after we checked in at the nearby Embassy Suite hotel. I found this spot in TripAdvisor. It was spot on. When we walked in, we met the owner. She explained that it is a family owned business. They have great burgers made from... More

Food was outstanding. Love the selection of burgers. I had just read a book about customer service. It says you don't want satisfied customers, you want RAVING FANS! I am a raving fan of Gilberts. I talked to the owner because I just knew she had read the book based on the way the place was run. She hadn't but... More

If you are looking for a place to grab a meal close to the Fort Lauderdale Airport this is the place for you. The burgers are big, juicy and yummo! The fresh cut fries are awesome and you could easily ask for an extra helping. They have a refill station where you can refill your drink. Place was clean and... More

This is a fairly simple restaurant that has a good following but it is a little to.o simple for me. Good food and a reasonable cost

Absolutely one of the best restaurants we've been to. The food was amazing. They say they are known for their burgers but their ribs were hands down the best I've ever had...fall off the bone and amazing flavor. My family had burgers and without a doubt fabulous. We were greeted with friendly faces that explained their process and showed us... More

Once in a while you will find a place that has it all. Forget about burgers from McD, BK, KFC or others. Go and taste the burgers with well baked crisp fries. Nothing to complain about! This deserves restaurant a detour!

I have to say, it's a nice place, clean, very very friendly, the owners are there and check it all and that's good. The food is good, big, fresh meat patties, but more average. Can't say it was the best. The cookies thou, they looked great and very sinful, big and lots going on on it. (I didn't taste them... More
