Excellent selection of beers, including ciders. They have a burger that will satisfy just about everyone. Don't want red meat, then they have a very good chicken sandwich & vege burger. The sweet tater fries are out of this world. The burgers are huge & they have a mini burger that is really about the right size. They do a... More

My husband and I grabbed a burger here one night on a Wednesday early in the evening when it was too cool out for most folks but we didn't mind sitting out. That's about the only way you can get a table most nights. The lines are long, ridiculously long. You'd think they gave the beer and burgers away the... More

This place has an excellent selection of beer, a great atmosphere, and a huge selection of burgers. With all of the great beers in the C'ville area, Citizen Burger has a lot to pick from - and it certainly takes advantage.

I do not eat burgers often, usually one or two a year. I will say the Citizen Burger I had was excellent. It was cooked just right and comes with hand cut fries and a fried pickle spear. It is filling. I would also recommend the birthday cake for dessert. It was huge and even though we were full from... More

recommended by our waitress @ Crozette Pizza, it did not disappoint. Would have had a long wait but opted to eat outside (heating towers) and were served immediately. On the Pedestrian Mall.

Been there a couple of times. Atmosphere is nice, and so is the bar. Hamburgers and fries were overcooked and disappointing. Both times. Did enjoy my drink.

My boyfriend and I were in Charlottesville for the day and decided to eat here because it had some pretty good ratings online. When we got there we were seated immediately at a table right next to the window which was really nice and gave us a chance to people watch. Our waiter came over and was very friendly and... More

Awesome fries and excellent burger of course, 24 dollars for a burger with seared goose liver? Cheap! I took the burger for that piece of Foie Gras poelle hehe... Meat was tasty and fat the way it should be. will be back if I ever go to C'ville. Nice waitress, good service.

Had dinner here with friends last week. Was promptly seated without a reservation and the booths were nice and roomy. Good service with attention to drinks and meals. Had an appetizer of fried pickles--tasty and substantial. More than two could eat while waiting for everyone to get there. Nice on-tap beers. Good wine too. Burgers come into flavors...one group is... More
