Delicious! And great service!

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!

Burger Up was delicious! The burger patties are incredible tasty. We also had the fried mac n cheese balls, which were equally as good. The sauces they serve with the Mac n cheese balls were very very good. Highly recommend this restaurant!

You have to get the onion ring stack (only $5 during happy hour 3-6pm everyday but Saturday) Also do half off drafts during this time. Burgers are $10-13; I recommend the woodstock.

After a very long day, my husband and I were hungry and remembered a friend's recommendation for this restaurant and how amazing the sweet potato fries were. He couldn't have been more right! Burger Up does not take reservations, so we knew there would be a wait (we hoped not too long, as we arrived at 5:45p), but when we... More

Four of us visited Burger Up on Valentine's Day. A very busy bistro with great food and excellent service. We waited in the bar for 30 minutes for a table. It was was quite pleasant even through crowded-very attentive bartenders! We each had a different burger cooked medium-rare-just the way we like them! A large side of fries really hit... More

Burger up was a really good choice. We went on a Friday night. Waited 45 minutes as we expected. We're served some complimentary French fries while we waited which was a nice gesture to show that our wait was appreciated. The service was excellent once we got to our table. Sweet potato fries are a must. As far as the... More

Should be called Burger Up and Down because my tastebuds we're a roller coaster of emotions. The vibe in this 12 South eatery was hip and trendy. The Woodstock and the turkey burger we're head on. The house fries were undiscribablly good. The selection of liquor and on tap beers we're worthy of noting. The spicy remolade was a bit... More

Seems like every city has their own unique burger joint and I think this is Nashville's. We were on a bit of a time crunch and weren't sure if we should stay and wait or not. The food was worth it and the waiter was awesome about making sure we got everything in time to get to our next stop.... More
