Best burger i've had in a long time!

Popped in for a quick bite to eat one afternoon. Friendly, fast and the burgers were the best burgers my dining companion and I have had in a long time. Can get busy but absolutely worth the wait.

Stopped after a long drive. There was a wait which went quickly. While we waited they gave us a small cup of free fries. The place is very cramped, loud and the seats are small and hard. I had a kids burger and it was good, normally small burgers are dry. Price was resonable. I wouldn't return.

Recently we tried Burger Up. We had walked by on a weekend day but the line was out the door. We went back on a weekday and were seated quickly. Our burgers were very good and so were the fries and homemade ketcup. My husband prefers heinz ketcup and they gladly brought it for him. Service was friendly and we... More

Went with a group of six. All had burgers. All loved burgers. Restaurant quite busy during lunch, but worth the wait. If it is available, ask for outdoor seating.

Had the bison burger. It was really good. The homemade ketchup was a nice surprise. My fiance had the patty melt. It has some flavoring that neither of us really cared for but was still cooked well, just wasnt what we liked. The burgers are large and affordable. We came during lunch and it was really busy, but the servers... More

What's not to like? The menu was thorough, the service was fast and attentive without being stuffy, and the prices were fair. Mind you I'm not a fan of burgers and there were alternatives for my palate. I think the highlight was the homemade catsup. Yes, you heard that right. It is stunning! And it's made fresh so it has...

I was warned we'd have to wait for a table but we lucked out and went right after the rush, apparently. The service was fast and efficient without being intrusive and the food was delightful. Come hungry though...this is not the place for grazing.

It's a great burger whether you get a normal or vegetarian option, and there are also options for people who are feeling like a salad or something different. Really nice atmosphere too! Jeni's Ice Cream is down a few street pretty close, so that's always a nice dessert option to pair.

Terrific atmosphere! Our server was very attentive and friendly, and my burger was amazing. Hands-down one of the best burgers I've ever eaten. Cooked to perfection and seasoned wonderfully! I'd go back any day of the week. Superb!

My husband and I made a quick trip to Nashville this weekend and I googled Paleo friendly restaurants and Burger Up popped up. We were lucky enough to get two spots at the bar and as soon as we sat down the place was CRAZY busy! I ordered a bloody mary (extra spicy) when I noticed the homemade bloody mary... More
