Good Time Charlie's has been a staple on San Antonio's Broadway corridor since opening in 1979. Although primarily a nightspot in its early days, it's evolved into lunch-and-dinner mainstay for those seeking homestyle vittles. The family-friendly spot can be a little cacophonous given its old-school digs, but those not averse to a little noise will find the food comforting and filling, particularly its award-winning chicken fried steak. Crisp, generously portioned and smothered in thick gravy, it's as indulgent as they come. The "Burgers & Stuff" section of Charlie's menu boasts nearly two dozen options, while its "Homestyle Specialties" includes favorites ranging from steak fingers and grilled pork chops to Polish sausage.
