Fabulicious New Menu for Gibsons Burgers & Ribs

05 September 2017


44 Yummilicious Burgers and 120 Decadently-Divine Gourmet Shakes are on the Fabulicious New Menu.

Gibson’s Gourmet Burgers & Ribs, culinary crusaders for excellence, excitement and innovation, have once again been awarded a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, and have upped their game with a fabulicious new menu, increasing their insane offerings of Gourmet Burgers and Shakes - a Burger and Milkshake Heaven indeed!

Part of the Slick Restaurant Group who also own Belthazar and Balducci, the Gibson’s team strive to provide a memorable dining experience and retain their stronghold of being ‘The Best of the Best’. At the end of last year Gibson’s was announced as the Best Burger Eatery in the Western Cape, winning the Savanna Best Burger Eatery award at the 2016 Eat Out Mercedes-Benz Best Everyday Eateries competition in Cape Town, and they are hoping to win it again this year.


The 2017 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence honours establishments that consistently delivered a quality customer experience and regularly received glowing traveller reviews and ratings on TripAdvisor over the past year. The fans’ rave comments include:

• “Officially my favourite restaurant ever”
• “Gibson’s was an experience to savour from start to finish”
• “I'm a little embarrassed at how often I eat at Gibson’s…. Love you guyz”
• “Definitely top of my ‘eat out’ list!”
• “They claim to have the best burgers in the city. I have to agree! “
• “What's not to love?!”
• “Absolute Heaven: Absolutely phenomenal restaurant”
• “I would recommend this place 1000 times over”
• “Definitely will be back again and again and again”
• “Gibson's has become a family favourite!”

And here’s what they particularly love about Gibson’s: “mouth-watering burgers, mind-blowing milkshakes, ribs to die for, the best steaks, divine fish, great vegetarian menu, amazing sweet potato fries, delicious puddings, amazing cocktails, lots of microbrew choices, top class service, amazing views of Table Mountain, wonderful vibrant location” and more….



According to a recent BBC News report, the ‘Better Burger’ is taking over the world, with burger lovers prepared to pay more and wait longer for an upmarket burger. And Gibson’s is right on fleek.  Having embarked on a quest to create the ‘Best Burger’, the owners visited the ‘Burger Capitals of the World’ - Chicago, New York and Las Vegas - and then tapped into the expertise of Belthazar’s Master Butcher, their 27 years’ of experience in making sauces, and feedback from hundreds of burger tastings with colleagues, friends and customers. The result was the creation of ‘The Ultimate Burger’, proudly showcased at Gibson’s.

Gibson’s has everyone’s favourite burger, with the new burger entries on the menu bringing the total up to a whopping 44 yummilicious burgers. Choose from over 30 Gourmet, Designer and Roll’s Royce Beef Burgers. Made from pure grainfed beef, their juicy 200g burgers are firstly flame-grilled to perfection with lashings of their best-kept-secret basting, and then lovingly placed on a home-baked, lightly-toasted sesame-seed bun, crowned with shredded lettuce, sun-ripened tomato, caramelised onions, Collette's famous deli-pickled cucumber and, finally, drizzled with their No 6 Creamy Sauce. All this deliciousness is served with a choice of thick-cut fries (potato, sweet potato or half-and-half), and spiced-up with a sprinkling of their addictive seasoning salt.

In addition to their famous Beef Burgers, Gibson’s also showcase a wide selection of Chicken, Pork, Vegetarian, Salad and Banting Burgers.

Enticing new Burger entries include:

  • Roll’s Royce Sweet & Sour Burger: Big 4 Toppings: A Gibson’s classic burger topped with salami, Gruyère, Gorgonzola and caramelised onions;
  • Roll’s Royce Blazing Hot Burger: Big 5 Toppings: A Gibson’s classic burger, topped with a hot Mexican salsa and served with your choice of hot chilli sauces on the side
  • Chicken, Atchar & Pineapple Burger: Fresh chicken burger with mango atchar, pineapple and fresh red onion
  • Onion Vegetarian Burger: Gibson’s signature onion blossom topped with No 6 sauce and all the trimmings (no patty)

When choosing from Gibson’s burgerlicious menu, you now have the choice to opt for a home-baked, brioche bun made with egg and butter and coated with sesame seeds for only R5 more.


Gibson’s have done it yet again, having increased their astonishing line-up of decadently-divine hand-spun double-thick Gourmet Shakes to an unbeatable 120 insane yummy flavours.
