The burgers are really good, although nothing unusual it is a safe place to eat a nice burger. Service was very good as well.

Given the Traffic around late afternoon can be quite bad in Cape Town: I find this is good spot where you can catch up with a friend(s), where they offer a great happy hour: two-4one beers, cocktails & snacks/appetizers. We spent a couple hours there...More

You will see a previous review where I gave a good one. We returned for some burgers. It was dreadful. Poor service, drinks orders were wrong. Starters ok, when mains came, my ostrich burger was luke warm, fries and onion rings freezing. They had obviously...More

My wife and I had been to the cinema around the corner and, as it was approaching 21.00, we looked for somewhere to have a quick bite. The welcome was friendly but it went downhill thereafter. We chose a table on the righthand side. The...More

We popped in for lunch post Lion’s Head walk. Big menu, we all had something different and not a scrap of food was left! Highly recommend the loaded fries sides!

Fancy names boring taste. Onion rings taste of zero. Chilli on fries is far too sweet. Meat is indescribable. Boring boring boring. Staff ok. Don’t believe the hype. McDonalds is down the road.

Had the burgers with the ribs, and the burger with the creamy mushroom sauce and both were perfect. Would recommend the disco fries as an appetizer

My husband ordered the mini slider selection, I got the "Health Nut" which was much more delicious than the name sounds. Grilled BBQ chicken with pesto, mushrooms and onions. YUM! We ate outside and it was pretty crowded with after work millenials. We were definitely...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.
