Our annual visit to Gilbert and finally I had to try their burger, even though I normally don't order beef. WOW! Big, juicy, and perfectly cooked - unsurpassed in my Burger memory. Family run, the woman who owns the place has been there to greet us every time we visit. The service is informal but excellent (you order your food... More

We just had an amazing lunch at Gilbert's 17th Street Grill. We were greeted by Lenora, the owner who was so kind explaining all the things they had to offer. We had two kids with us and she offered many different items for them to eat. The service was excellent and all of the staff was friendly. You order before... More

Gilbert's has so many options for burgers that sometimes it's hard to choose. No matter which one, they are always freshly made, juicy and worth visiting. The staff is friendly and the service fast and efficient.

The food is decent,but I feel it is overpriced. I don't have any complaints other than it is pricey for what you get.

Visited here last year on a recommendation so had to return with our #1 burger fan. Not at all disappointed! The burger lovers very happy, sweet potato fries excellent. I, not being a burger fan, opted for a chicken wrap. Chicken dry but the sweet potato fries made up for it. Service outstanding, "Tyler" on top of everything! A definite... More

Truly a hidden gem that has been around way before the gastropub craze! These guys were making burgers before Rok Burger and have never been in the burger battle if that means anything. Tucked away in a typical shopping center they have off hours so make sure you check prior to going. They cook one of the best burgers ever... More

Whenever I am in the area (or within an hour of this restaurant!) I always make sure to stop in for a great meal here. My favorite is the goat cheese burger which I would rate as one of the best ones I've had. And I never leave without eating one of the amazingly decadent cookies (and have often bought... More
