Stopped in during our short trip to Ft. Lauderdale. We were greeted by Mrs. Gilbert who explained everything about the restaurant. We could not resist ordering a cheeseburger, and they were as good as advertised. There are so many varieties it is difficult to choose....More

Gilbert’s advertises the best burger in Ft. Lauderdale, and it really is. Highly recommended. Our burgers and fries were fantastic, and the service was just as good. They are a testament to how enjoyable a simple burger and fries can be when done correctly.

Great food excellent service. Can thoroughly recommend. We were only in Fort Lauderdale for a one day stopover on our way to Boston but will definitely visit Gilbert's the next time we are in the area. Thanks once again to Lenore and her team.

Double chocolate cone is the fullest,richest chocolate ever. Splurge and make your tongue dance. Prices a little high but quality over quantity. Such a fun, clean atmosphere with happy employees. Enjoy.

Order at the counter and then there are food runners and bussers who will help you with what you need when you are seated...bring you drinks, silverware, condiments, etc.

I'm sure Ms. Gilbert will be more than helpful in satisfying your dietary needs. She was very reassuring when we inquired about nut allergies. And, I still say they have the BEST burgers. Hope this helps!
