Besr burger in Nashville? You are too modest!

Delicious, moist and flavorful grass fed beef with perfectly cooked fries. This is more than Nashville's top burger, it's one of the best burgers I've ever had! Our party of 3 all had burgers; one classic, one double cheeseburger and one patty melt. Although dessert looked delicious no one had room... read more

There are better burgers in Nashville that won't cost you an arm and a leg! I would suggest going somewhere else for a nice burger!

I had a good lunch last week at Burger Up. Service was spot-on for our group of 6. I had one of the veggie burgers. The burger looked so much like beef that I had to confirm it was veggie. The burger itself was good but it was a bit too dense to call great. Overall a very good lunch... More

We really like this restaurant. It is spacious and the staff is always welcoming and courteous. Not only are the burgers great but the kale salad with salmon is also delicious. I tried their soup butternut squash and it was also tasty. They have a nice dessert menu but we have never tried any. The woman at the next table... More

4 people, 4 different bugres, 4 different sides and all were well satisfied. Beef is aged with a great flavor to it. Turkey was good and would be ordered again. Great sweet potato fries. Truffle fries were good, but tasted like fiies with truffle oil spkinkled on after cooking.. Don't expect more, this is how they were advertised.

Very surprised, after reading all these good reviews i couldn't believe how much i disliked my burger. Maybe it was an off day, but i will not return at those prices.

We visited from the Knoxville,Tn area and had never been here before. My daughter had raved about the Burger Up Chili Burger. So, we got the chili burger and fries. The portions were average, but the flavor was huge! Great seasonings on the fries as well. The service was quick, friendly, and accurate. The atmosphere is quite unique and gives... More

These guys are pros! The place is mobbed, the wait is short and the service is quick. The perfect burger with fresh cut French fries (sweet potato if you like). My husband said it was the best bison burger he'd ever had - super moist and delish.

The 12th Street South Neighborhood has some really interesting stores and food places. A nice feeling. Maybe a little yuppy with kids vibe if that bothers you. No reservations, so it can be a long wait. We had fried pickles as an appetizer, and they are not may cup of tea, but many at the table enjoyed them. Wait staff... More
