I'm not much of a burger fan but I really liked the burgers at Hudson's. We visited two times so I had the chance to try two different burgers. They were both really good. The service was also good. I would recommend visiting for lunch...More

Kloof Street is very nice. And this burger joint is in a great location. The waiters are fantastic. Best burgers in town and great beer options.

We liked the laid back atmosphere and were perfectly happy drinking a beer here. The disappointment came when the food was served. The burger was nothing but a pile of grease, on a greasy bun, served with greasy fries. The flavor wasn’t bad, but the...More

I wasn’t particularly keen having been to what feels like a million and one burger places but this was so easy. Delicious food, lovely chilled service, and a seriously addictive grapefruit vodka cocktail.

With so many INCREDIBLE burger joints around the city, it’s surprising Hudson’s in Kloof street is still around. After enquiry about the hideous presentation of our burgers I was told several times that this is exactly what they were supposed to look like. My boyfriend...More

Perfect service and perfect food! Also perfect for vegetarians, you can choose every burger veggie style! Try the desert: milkshakes, which come extraordinary! 😋

The Place seemed nice enough, but the tables & chairs were crammed in. Obviously trying serve more people than the space was designed for. I had to sit sideways to fit in. The Waitress was so busy she did not really give us the service...More

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.
