I LOVE Riverside burgers, so was not hugely excited about trying something new. I am so glad I did! I ordered a cheeseburger and fries (my normal Riverside choices) and was not disappointed. I would say there are 2 choices for the best burger in Charlottesville. If you want a wonderfully greasy, juicy, diner burger, go to Riverside. If you want a great burger but can't (or don't want to) handle as much grease, go with Jak'n Jil. One thing to note - when you go in order at the counter and then sit down - no one will come to take your order. :)
