Great burgers and right on the river walk...

We loved the atmosphere at Charlie Wants a Burger and were able to sit outside next to the river. It was great for our two families and great prices.

We went here looking for a place to sit outside on the Riverwalk and people watch. We figured it would not be THE most amazing food, but I was way under impressed. We were seated right away which was nice for getting there at noon, however, in their effort to have as many tables as possible I do think they... More

We ate here on a Wednesday night in March around 7:30 and were lucky enough to get one of the last open tables. After we sat the wait jumped to 20 minutes or so. Our waitress was very friendly and efficient. The burgers were very good, beer was cold and my wife enjoyed the watermelon mojito. We sat right on... More

I ate here along with 5 of my family members while we were visiting the San Antonio riverwalk. It was happy hour so we ordered 2 of the $5 appetizers and 4 of us decided on a local draft beer for $3. Our server was nice and attentive, but didn't seem to know the menu very well. Most of the... More

We ate there 2 times when we visited the Riverwalk.. If you like real spicy Bloody Mary's they have a very spicy one! I had Fish taco's loved them for deep fried fish. They have a full bar upstairs if you want quicker service. Everyone is outside and it takes longer to get service. Did not eat a burger but... More

Just when you stereotype a title this'll change your mind. It sounds like something else, but it's so much more. Hot, juicy and the flavor combination was intriguing. All that said, the fries weren't up to par. They were limp, barely warm, and lacked seasoning. If you want a delicious burger, this is a good choice.

I had the Local Burger and was completely impressed. I love burgers and eat too many, this burger was one of the best I have ever had. Long way from the patio to restroom after eating a big burger though, thought I was Fred Sanford by the time I got to top of stairs.

The service was good but the burger was average to bad. Especially if we take into consideration the prices of the restaurant we can say the value for money is low. Moreover, don't try the Greek salad. It is not like that the greek salad.

We ate here for dinner one night on a whim after looking at the menu. We are glad we did. The burgers were delicious as were the fries. Service was a little slow, but that was okay as the food was served hot and tasted great. Highly reccommend.
