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.

Went for first time with family which included 3 adult children for an early lunch on a Saturday(11:30am). We were seated right away. Noticed though when we left there was a line waiting to be seated. I had salmon burger, others tried lamb, veggie(quinoa and black bean burger) and beef burger. Large quantity of fries as side, but you could... More

My husband and I met with friends at Burger up a few weeks ago for a DELICIOUS dinner! We started with appetizers: fried mushrooms, fried mac n cheese bites, and fried pickles. They had other non-fried options but who wants those? The restaurant was packed and we were happy to escape the heat... only to be seated on the un-air... More

My family ate here before leaving town to head home. We were at Belmont University for new student orientation and ate lunch here. Great atmosphere. Prices are in line with Hard Rock Cafe, but why bother? Here, you will get so much better!!!! Homemade Ketchup, and other sauces. All food is made with locally available food. The hamburgers... better than... More

It's casual. it has friendly service. And it's delicious! I went there with my 8 months preg girlfriend and customized almost everything on our order due to the diet restriction of her pregnancy.  The waiter was patient the whole time and checked few things with the kitchen for the things he's not sure. Our meal was delicious AND accommodated her... More
