We went to Hudsons with friends. Parking is a bit of an issue, but just park across in the centre. It was quite busy on a Friday night and we were shown to our table. The waitress was spinning a bit because she was quite...More

From the moment my friend and entered thre waitress was curtious and proffessional. The only downfall of the get together was that the menu didn't specify that chips isn't served with the burger.

Service is not fantastic, but it is a chilled vibe amongst the staff and patrons. They make really nice burgers, really really good. I did think the bun was a tad dry, but okay. Can't have it all hey. Good place for a burger I...More

The service is slow. The pizza, especially The Surfer...is horrible. The vase is bitter, the toppings almost non existent and not to mention the cheese, none. Even the skin on fries are a waste of money. Hudson's should stick to what they are known for,...More

Above average burgers, but totally overpriced - R99 for burger without ant chips or salads. Not really worth a visit without the entertainer app

The food was actually quite poor, flavourless, dry, tough and with watered down condiments. This is not a general comparison to other burger places but based on experiences at other Hudsons' and this very one about a year ago. To be blunt even Macdonalds offers...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.
