Pimento cheese and bacon

Can't go wrong with that combination. And the fried pickles - delicious. Check out the different sauces with the fries.

Don't get me wrong, the burgers here are delicious. I got the typical cheeseburger with all the fixins' and it was excellent. perfectly cooked medium-rare, good fries. But this place gets out-of-control busy and sitting at the bar does not get you any better service, apparently. Not sure the space is big enough, or that they have enough people, but... More

Really enjoyed the fresh change of pace. Trendy area, trendy place. Had a yummy burger, sweet potato fries with sea salt were so fresh. Fruit tea was light. We took a seat at the bar to seat quicker. Really enjoyed and would def return to try other menu items. Person next to me had the fried oysters, sounds like he... More

There were 4 of us and we had about a 30 min wait on a Sat. night at 6:30. Once seated, our waitress came right over and was attentive & informative and so cheerful the whole time. She gave us perfect descriptions of the burgers and how they are cooked. We each had a different burger and each of us... More

As the name suggests, this is a great place for burgers. Before you think, it's only a burger - try one here and taste how good they are. There are lots of creative combinations and over a dozen to choose from. They are juicy, perfectly cooked to your liking, and generously sized. Even the bun was fresh and just right.... More

I visited Burger Up with my college freshman daughter for dinner and with my family for lunch. There's often a line out the door but with their family style seating the wait is never long. The burgers are amazing. Fresh ingredients. Creative and tasty combinations. And the homemade fries are fantastic. It's pricey - $70 for the four of us.... More

The burgers are as healthy as they come, the atmosphere almost always vibrant, and it is both family-friendly and has a proper bar. A Nashville classic.
