“Best CFS in San Antonio”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

Native son, I've tried them all, this is the best examp[le of a good Chicken Fried Steak as you will ever find. I'm not talkin' bout no breaded rib-eye or fried hamburger, just real, honest average ole Chicken Fried Steak. Cube steak , twice breaded with honest sausage cream gravy, not too much flour breading and NO CHICKEN GRAVY. Less than $10 with 2 sides in a cute little parkside bistro. Located at Mulberry and Broadway, just off the SE corner of Brackenridge Park, cata-corner from the Kiddie Park. Plenty of other things both fried and not, on the menu. Salads and specials and a great hot dog too. Ice cold beverages , cool shade and eclectic decor with usual TV's can break up your day while moving from midtown to downtown. Late hours, open for lunch at 11am.

“Disappointment”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

Don't go here if you are looking for anything remotely healthy. I ordered the chicken tenders with cilantro, and two vegetables. The vegetables were canned, the chicken tasted blah, and the Texas toast was limp. My friend had steak, mashed potatoes and the canned corn. He said the mashed potatoes were the best part of the meal. We saw some good looking hamburgers go by. If you go there, order the burger and fries.

“Great local eats.”

The chicken fried steak is great! Onion rings are delicious! Servings are large enough to share. Go early or you will have to wait.

“A nice Chicken Fried Steak!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012 via mobile

Very little breading on the CFS and topped with their homemade gravy....Yum.
Great mashed potatoes, taste fresh and not out of a box.
They've been rated best burger in town....I will make that decision next time!

“Fantastic down home cooking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

Been going here for years and Good Time Charlie's is consistently great! Top of the line chicken fried steak, steak fingers, and pork chops. Best cream gravy around, too! Those plates come with their mashed potatoes, green beans, and Texas toast. Mmmmmm! The atmosphere is super laid back. We often travel across town to get to this delicious stop!
