Gilbert’s 17Th St Grill... I loved this place! The moment I walked in I was greeted with a smile and a hello. Gilbert's has awesome customer service, and the food happens to be amazing.
Family-owned and operated by the same owners who started Kansas City Steak House in Davie, Gilbert’s opened in South Florida almost two years ago, and has been a staple in Fort Lauderdale ever since.
It took me almost 45 minutes to get there and it was definitely worth it. I ordered the Goat Cheese Burger which is an 8oz. pattie with caramelized onions and, yes, lots of goat cheese. The meat was cooked to a perfect medium and I became a big fan of the sweet potato fries very quickly. My friend had the Louisiana Beef burger which tasted as good as it looks. The Louisiana is cajun-style, and comes with your cheese of choice. The fries are homemade and hand cut, and the coleslaw is made fresh everyday and tastes great. After all that we had eaten, we still had room for dessert. The key lime pie was simply amazing. Beth’s own concoction called Brownie Burgers are a simple, yet massive “mountain of goodness,” as I called them.
