As guys born and bred in Charlotte, we’re as local as they come. We know all about Southern hospitality, comfort provisions and rock and roll. Charlotte’s our town, we know it and love it, but we also know that it needs a little inspiration from the icons who’ve inspired our own vivacious nature. That’s why we created Cowbell Burger and Bar, to satisfy not only in taste but also in sight and sound. Look out for Lennon, Zeppelin, or Stanley, watching over as you dine, drink and dance to the songs born out of the original era that inspired cool. Our artisanal burgers range from acoustic to bass-driven.

For a classic, opt for the “Elvis” topped with aged cheddar, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, ketchup and mustard. All of our gourmet patties are hand ground,each sauce, from the bacon marmalade to the pineapple Sriracha dressing, is made fresh in house, and our buns are baked right here in NC. Load up on buttermilk drenched onion fries or sweet potato croquettes on the side and top it off with one of our spirited shakes, ice cream topped with pudding and spiked with a little grownup potion.

Whether you’re looking for the best burger in Charlotte or to bask in Uptown Charlotte nightlife, kick back in a vintage styled banquette or grab a seat at the whiskey bar to catch classic videos streaming above. Gulp, Graze and get your rock and roll on at Cowbell Burger & Bar.
