With its large food portions at incredibly low prices, Riverside Lunch is an old-fashioned eatery in the best sense of the word. This community staple has served the self-proclaimed “best burgers in town” since opening its doors in 1935, and most Charlottesville residents would wholeheartedly agree. Riverside Lunch’s interior has a mom-and-pop feel, with small wooden tables advertising other local businesses and an ever-present group of regulars situated at the barstools along the counter.
Order one of the famous burgers and you’ll receive a chargrilled patty that’s smashed on a flat-top grill and cooked until the edges are blackened, and if you opt for fries on the side, you’ll receive a basket with more than enough for two people to share. Riverside Lunch also offers a few beers to pair with your food.
