Met friends and had a great time eating very well cooked burgers (with tons of options for toppings) and lots of beer choices. Really nice spot for burgers and all the trimmings.

Great place for happy hour type of atmosphere. Had the citizen burger, cooked to perfection. The fries were a little soggy but not bad. The fried pickle was not my fav but others in my group enjoyed it. Enjoy!

We had lunch at CBB on a weekday afternoon and it was delicious. They have great options for locally sourced items for those interested in that. Our group had the shisito pepper appetizer, which was very different and delicious, and some cheese fries which were spot on. Our burgers were excellent as well. Only two drawbacks: First, the onion rings were excessively battered and greasy. Secondly, this is not your average burger and these are not your average burger prices. We had 4 adults and 4 kids, getting 3 appetizers, 4 regular burgers (8 oz.), 4 mini burgers (4 oz.), 2 beers, 1 milk, 2 sodas, 1 iced tea and 2 waters. Our bill, including a 20% gratuity automatically added for our party of 8, was $178 for lunch. Was it good? Absolutely. Will we return? Not often!

My wife and I were waking the pedestrian mall in Charlottesville for the first time and we happened upon Citizen's Burger Bar. It looked like a cool spot and although the outside seating had a 45 minute wait, we were seated inside immediately. We opted for the mini-burgers (1/4lb angus beef). I had sweet potato fries (big yum), my wife had regular fries. The fries come in a metal container which keeps them warm (very smart idea). The burger was really tasty.

My only beefs (sorry for the pun) was that it took a while to get our food, and it's on the noisy side (brick walls, old wood floors, high ceiling) so conversation can be a little tougher. Would we go back? You bet.

The venue, the courteous service, the menu. We walked in and although there was a 40 min wait for a table, they seated us in an aisle seat, which is ideal if there's only tow of you not having a huge meal. Traffic bustling around us but nothing imposing and there was plenty of room for the staff and customers to get by. the place really was busy (dinner time) and there were families there. The food...wow! I usually don't eat burgers unless they're gourmet but this was a basic burger with grilled onions on the top. the meat and toppings were so tasty, ketchup WAS NOT needed! highly recommend this place to try. You will not be disappointed!
