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.

Had a great dinner at Hudsons , the service was maybe the best I have ever received. Our waitron was on the ball, made us laugh, made the experience even better. I had the sticky spare ribs- soft, sticky.

Was ok, we decided to have the TriBeCa burger cause we like different flavors and was very tasty, although it could have been warmer...the flavors were ok, but I think the 1 flavored burger might have been best. Not a bad burger though...

So we were having a perfect time, spending large amounts of our hard earned on having a great time at this establishment when we were politely informed by the hostess that we were making too much noise for the neighboring tables to deal with. That this was a "family" establishment and that we were either to comply or leave... We chose the latter and left paying a bill of 900 and 500 which could easily have been double that had we been allowed to enjoy ourselves within the confines of acceptable behavior for a pub setting. Since when has rowdy banter been disallowed at hudsons so that those of the Puritan persuasion can enjoy a quite evening at the pub. Pathetic response from manager and hostess.... Sorry but you lost out.

Well, we thought it was finally time to check out what all the hype was about, and Hudson's didn't disappoint! There is a fantastic city vibe, the service was good and the food absolutely gorgeous. My favourite - the fudge milkshake!!
The selection of burgers goes on forever, but when you have finally picked one - you won't be disappointed.

Really nice appetizers, a great burger, good service, and just a cool place to go and have a relaxed meal on Kloof.

Would return for sure.
