The Truffle fries could be a meal in themselves for me they are insanely good. The burgers are also delicious. The white sauce is insane I use it on everything. The service can sometimes be a little bit to be desired but the great food makes up for it for the most part.

The truffle fries were excellent! House fries were also good with the house made ketchup. Between us we had the Woodmans burger, the bison burger, and the Byrd. All delicious.

This is the second times I've been to this place and every time I enjoy it more and more. The place is always full but you will taste why after you eat there. Our dinner started with mac n'cheese ball bites and fried pickles. Both options are great but I think I liked the pickles better. Then I got some... More

Service was fantastic, food was good but there are better burgers in Nashville. It's a local hotspot for musicians and artists.

This places seems to always be packed but that is because the food is great. I would recommend making reservations if you don't not want to wait. I recommend you try the mac n cheese balls they are great in the home made ketchup .

No parking except at a pay lot that says first 1 1/2 hours free but you have to mess with their machine anyway or you get a $60 ticket. You sit next to other people which is okay except the guy I got to sit next to smelled like an ashtray. Maybe have a "smokers" table or two? Awful. Then... More

Our first stop from the airport was Burger Up. We had a few minutes wait, so it gave us a chance to peruse the menu and sneak a peak at the plates of fellow diners. Once seated, we ordered our cocktails, which were amazing. We started with the fried oysters and pimento cheese, because who comes to Nashville and doesn't... More

The burger menu is unique with sustainable ingredients. Very cool atmosphere and located on 12 South so you can shop after you eat. They even make their own ketchup. I like to split a burger with a friend and enjoy a beer from one of the local breweries. You must check it out!

Thank Cristen V
