Description: 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.

Great food for any burger lover and juicy ribs.
Cool location especially close to Once in Cape Town

Place could do with a little more cleaning

They weren't joking when they said it's the best burger joint in Cape Town. Great burgers, shakes and sides. An extensive menu to suit all tastes. The service was great, very attentive waitress. Good value and really good food.

We went as Hudsons was highly recommend by a couple we met a night before. Burgers were great but that's about it. The drinks were ok and the fries were unfortunately not the least bit crisp. I would go there again however only to get a burger and a beer. Nothing more.

Went there after walking Long Street for a place to eat, and ended up on the place I knew, but which is great!
Ostrich burger is really good, the Bad A** burger (sorry TripAdvisor, this is the name of the burger!) has a well deserved name.
I'd like to have a Hudsons here in Brazil!

Some of the best food I had while in Cape Town! Perfectly succulent patties with the most amazing sort of condiments - we went back twice for more!
