We were walking with our son, who really wanted a cheeseburger, and we decided to try Charlie Wants a Burger. The burgers were really good, as were the fries, and it was a nice break from all the Tex-Mex or very touristy places along the Riverwalk. Downsides: the patio was hot and they had no fans. We were tempted to... More

The place itself is pretty awesome on the inside... The burger was awesome, the fries were cold and stale (but would probably be good fresh) and the service was severely lacking. We probably won't be back. There are too many other things to do on the Riverwalk.

We were here for an FCCLA conference with 10 teenagers and 2 adults. Concierge at our hotel suggested Charlie Wants A Burger. We first tried Saturday night around 9:30 but couldn't stay for a 45 minute wait. The host, Roland, told us it was worth coming back. He was right! Tonight we came back and he remembered our group. He... More

Among us, we had the chicken fried steak, pork sandwich, bacon cheeseburger, chicken wrap, salad, nachos, hot wings, and homemade chips. None of the food was outstanding, but it was just very average, and a whole lot of it. If you are not extremely hungry, you probably don't need the appetizers. On the plus side, the view outside is awesome.

They restaurant chef does a great job with the menu items. Portion sizes were very large. I would recommend the loaded mashed potatoes. They were delicious.

Great food. The hot dogs are huge and tasty! The waitstaff was awesome and went out of their way to help us and make sure we were taken care of. The restaurant is located right on the Riverwalk and is convenient and vibrant. Great job management staff and Toni Baker for making out experience a memorable one!

I just finished a series of medical treatments that have at least temporarily given me a bunch of food restrictions. I was really anxious about needing to be out of town and eating at restaurants during this time. They were so nice and accommodating to my needs, making modifications at no extra charge; it took the stress right out of... More
