Visited Cape Town on 25th May just for the week and ate here at Gibson's a few times. Wonderful food, great service. No complaints. Recommended if you are staying in Cape Town.

Gibson’s serves tasty burgers and a variety of sides. You can always switch all patties to a vegetarian option. Friendly staff, great burgers. Top!

Dear Scott, we offer 2 size burgers, a regular and a small. I think the kitchen used the incorrect roll for your order, which is why it was bigger than the patty. We look forward to you dining with us again very soon to try...More

Description
After 2 years of perfecting the perfect burger, we have a range of Gourmet Burgers as well as amazing succulent fall-off-the-bone ribs (pork, beef & lamb). We have just launched another 17 shakes to our already 40 Gourmet Shake range, which include Chocolate Brownie shake, Cheesecake shake as well as a huge flavour of fruit shakes (Blueberry, Summerburst & Black Cherry to name a few) and now also Gingerbread, Malva&Custard and Orange Blossom
