My wife and I and a friend dined here yesterday for lunch, and we were all pleased. We were seated at once, and our service was excellent. I enjoyed the black bean and quiona burger with lots of toppings along with fries, and the others had beef burgers. We enjoyed the atmosphere and bustle of the spot. I wish there... More

We tried to eat here several times when we were visiting Nashville. It is very crowded with a long wait at dinner time. We got seated immediately when we went at 2 pm. The food was very good, fresh and sauces were homemade. Good selection of beers. I will be returning to Burger Up!

This place, and the whole neighborhood, has a bit of an Austin vibe going. Except everyone in here looks like they could be a country star you don’t recognize yet. The food is a good match, starting with the truffle fries (which actually got a bit salty close to the end of the basket). Their beef is humanely sourced, but... More

I have been meaning to write a review for Burger Up for ages. I live locally and the location is in a wonderful, walkable area of Nashville that has been rapidly revitalized recently: 12th south. I ordered my go-to take out orders for my husband and myself: Marathon burger on Kale salad for me and Lamb burger with kale salad... More

The service was superb in this, apparently, very trendy burger joint. But for a $10-$12 Burger, I can name a half dozen places that are better.....maybe not in Nashville...I don't know.

Very trendy but fun atmosphere. Enjoyed reading the menu and all of the choices and different varieties of burgers and "non" burgers. Almost makes me laugh as being there reminds me of a segment from the show Portlandia where the patrons are asking their waitress about the free range chickens and what cicumstances they are raised, what are their names,...

Tired of whole in the wall places with great food? Burger Up offers great burgers in a beautiful, well-designed space. Everything about this place is fun and cozy. The burger options are varied and offers something for everyone. The kids menus are awesome, with each placed within an actual children's book. And the design of the space itself is perfect.... More

My wife and I loved this place. The waitstaff was great. The bison burger and the truffle fries were interesting.

Three of us had three great burgers - the woodstock, the bison, and mushroom and Swiss. All were tasty and served in a reasonable time. Our waiter recommended adding avocado to the bison and the taste was great (messy, but well worth it). We got there around 1:00pm on a Sunday afternoon and were able to be seated on the... More

I had the quinoa and black bean burger, which was excellent. The patrons were mostly young adults, but there were some screaming children that I could have done without. Very interesting neighborhood
