“ok but nothin special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Got right in with no wait. Burgers were good but I think I could do the same on my grill. Skip the sides, I got the fries but Mc Ds are better. Prices are pretty high for a burger joint. I can say I have been there but probably won't go again.

“Great service- mediocre food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

Simply put, small burgers and I couldn't taste the chorizo that was supposed to be on my Hamburguesa Mamacita. Nephew's Mac and cheese side for $3 tasted straight out of a lunch cafeteria. Brother-in-law ordered the black eyed pea and cucumber side and it could not have been more bland. He ordered Italian dressing to try to give it some sort of palatable flavoring. Server did great on a crowded Thursday evening, but if the food's not up to par, why even bother fighting the crowd?

“Go for the beer and whiskey, stay for the burgers.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

This restaurant is located in one of the oldest buildings in Chattanooga. I think it was originally a freight depot for the Union Station of the L&N railroad terminal that once stood nearby but demolished years ago. It still has the cobblestones surrounding the entrance and the charm of hand-hewn oak rafters and exposed brick. Nice.

It's located a block off the CARTA electric shuttle route between the cental city and southside.

The big deal is the beer and whiskey menu. Lots of seasonal craft beer choices and maybe the best menu of whiskey in town. And they know how to serve it. The bar area is large enough for waiting, dining, or meeting a large group of friends with an outside seating area, as well. The restaurant dinning room is mostly booths with some high tops in the outdoor dining area.

The food is very simple. Burgers. You can order a burger from the many suggestions on the menu or you can build your own. There is also a vegan bean burger and a grilled chicken breast alternative. And there are several good side items instead of fries or onion rings. But if you're having a burger then go with fries or onion rings, for crying out loud.

I rated the food as average because it's a burger lounge. Not a lot of choices, folks. But if a burger is what you crave then you'll be good to go.

Urban Stack is good for families or first dates, business lunch or going solo for dinner.

“What's the Big Deal?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

No where to stand while waiting. Just a hamburger and fries. Nothing special. Building decor is unique - I like that.

“OMG”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Gotta be solidly in my top five favorite burgers of all time - somewhere between the Grizzly Bar in Cameron, MT and the Bucky Burger served in the Ely Steakhouse.
