Located in the Five Corners area of east Nashville, you will find a fantastic burger joint called Burger-Up. All their beef is local and certified grass fed. Much care is taken in selecting each ingredient that is prepared for you to enjoy. I had the Black and Blue Burger with an appetizer if fried Mac and Cheese! Sorta like large... More

Best burger I've had in a long time! Cool atmosphere and great drinks! While you are there, make sure to wander the neighborhood as there are lots of neat places to stop in.

I went with a group of coworkers and we were able to try the fried pickles, cheese plate, and fried mac & cheese bites before being served our dinner. Everything tasted amazing, fresh, and delicious. The staff were extremely busy and were training that day and appeared to be patient with the new staff which I find to be important.... More

The burgers are huge: split one with a friend and add some.local beer to your meal. The sweet potato fries and onion rings are good sides. No reservations, so plan to add your name to the list then enjoy a walk around the cool neighbourhood while you wait to be paged that your table is ready.

My vegetarian sister recommended this place to us and we totally understood why. Lots of great vegetarian options and great burgers too. We were very impressed. Our server was super friendly and made great suggestions.

East Nashville is definitely not short of restaurants and bars, but Burger Up is a great addition to the scene! The former Turnip Truck space has undergone a wonderful transition and looks great now! The Burgers, Salads and Fries are as good as one would expect from 12 South. A big shout out to Natalie, our waitress tonight. Thank you... More

Fantastic burgers. Well worth the wait! Our family had a variety of burgers from the basics to bison and turkey and even created our own versions. All were amazing! Highly recommend this place.

There is no doubt we will be stopping here every time we visit Nashville or even pass through town. I've always thought of myself as being a burger guy and I've probably had thousands in my life. I'm telling ya this burger was in the top three of all time! Yep, it was that good.

Excellent and inventive burgers. I visit Nashville several times a year and have seen South 12th "grow up" to the trendy destination it is now. Burger Up was a pioneer on S 12th and has become an anchor restaurant that has stayed on top of its game with quality food and service. Be prepared to wait if you arrive at... More

While in Nashville recently my family and I asked some locals where to get a great burger, and they recommended Burger Up. I ordered the Nashville burger, which was cooked as ordered and was tasty, but it was just an average burger. Personally, I'd rather Five Guys. I thought the fries were overly salted when served also.

Thank Big Hooie
