Definitely not too 75 in Charlotte. We were unimpressed with both the burger and chicken. I’d choose Red Robin if that tells you anything. Fries were hyped up and just plain disappointing. Maybe it was an off night but everything tasted burnt. On the upside,...More

We went into the very crowded place just for drinks and thought it might be awhile but thanks to the incredible bartenders we didn’t have to wait at all. The bartenders were friendly, answered all of our questions and made recommendations for drinks. He asked...More

Great service and a pretty tasty burger. I got the Mac and cheese for my side. It was delicious as well. Will definitely eat here again when I am in town.

If I lived in Charlotte, this would be my regular joint. I’d be at that bar top almost every night working my way through whiskey, wings, and the breakfast burger on a brioche with spicy aioli and jalapeños. I really love the music, the decor,...More

Great place to go before or after Belk Theater! My daughter and I went to Cowbell after seeing Hamilton this past weekend. The staff was friendly and the service was great. If you are a burger person, this is the place for you.

This is a cool little place in downtown Charlotte. They have great food and a nice beer and drink selection. It's a bit noisy, more of a bar scene and the service was just ok but it is worth a visit.

Cowbell has a super cool vibe with 70s & 80s rock music playing loudly, a lengthy local beer list and whiskey menu plus 2 dozen burger selections from beef to pork and salmon to black bean...something for everyone! The fried pickles were crunchy and so...More
