Most restaurants had an hour or more wait, the wait was only 15 minutes here. However, we decided to eat in the bar and enjoyed a Balcony seat. The beef sandwich was EXCELLENT!

I wanted to watch the college football playoffs but didn't want to leave the Riverwalk area to do so. This place had lots of TV's to watch all kinds of sports. They also have tables on the actual Riverwalk which is nice as well. I ordered a hamburger with fries. The burger was a pretty good size and was good.... More

Great start on arrival and quite attentive but once you have your meals... that's it... it's all downhill from there. Our waitress literally couldn't be found. Food is good but if you want good service as well.. this may not be the right location

Came here the day of the Alamo Bowl so it was very busy. Limited but unique menu with breakfast beers highlighted. The bfast burrito was huge - could easily be shared. Service was slow but they seemed understaffed for the day's crowd. This is a pretty basic sports bar in a very crowded restaurant scene. You could probably do better.

We had left 2 other restaurants because the menus were just too wild, and the time it was taking to get a server was just too long. We decided to stop in at Charlie Wants a Burger and couldn't have made a better choice. The service was great, the food selection was great...just all in all a great experience.

Went in for lunch on a Monday afternoon. The place did not seem very busy however the server proceeded to tell us that he didn't want to rush us but they kept seating people in his section and he had been working 4 days straight. As a customer I don't need to hear this. After waiting 1/2 an hour to... More

Great location right on the River Walk. We stopped in for lunch on a Monday and it wasn't busy! We had quick service! So many food and drink options! We had onion rings that were delicious a burger and a roast turkey sandwich of sorts! Great place for families, groups, and friends!

We walked by this place several times and finally decided to slide in to CWaB. Very good choice the burger I ordered was huge and very tasty. It was also Happy Hour so we had to try their cactus margaritas. Very good place to watch sports and get a pint.

There are two levels. One on the Riverwalk where you can watch the foot traffic and an upstairs location. Stopped in to watch a football game. Nice apps and a good selection of beers on tap.
