My husband and I went for a weekend trip and were looking for something very casual, but good. This was the perfect place. We only had to wait about 15 minutes for a table, and it was worth it. The appetizers were great, and the burgers were fantastic. The dessert was my favorite! A warm brownie with brownie ice cream!?... More

We dined at Burger Up East last week because the reviews were promising. Our friends had already taken a table inside or I would have requested one of the outside tables. Service was good. The fried macaroni and cheese bites were amazing. The Woodstock Burger was good, and the fries were great. We'll definitely be back.

We actually ate at the Burger Up in East Nashville, but there wasn't a listing in Tripadvisor for this location. I'm sure the food is the same and the decor similar. The burgers were interesting and tasty. I loved their fries. A fun place to eat and the prices were pretty reasonable considering this is one of the "hip" places... More

Our party of 10 split between two tables enjoyed fried pickles, amazing kale salad, beet and arugula salads. Their speciaility drinks are worth a try however they also offer a full bar. The wait staff is efficient and friendly. This area of Nashville near Belmont was one of my favorite stops.

My wife, daughter and I all enjoyed burgers here. They are good but, imho, not THE best. My own are the best based on Allen Brothers steak burgers which come in 6, 8 and other sizes. Not lean but great. These burgers at Burger Up are really good but not the best in flavor or texture but probably best in... More

My wife and I were visiting our son in Nashville and I had heard Burger Up was even better than Pharmacy, which was my all-time favorite burger place. I was skeptical that anyone could top Pharmacy, but the lamb burger was undoubtedly the best burger I have ever had! The mint honey Dijon aioli was the perfect flavor touch to... More

We visit quite a few burger joints in the Nashville area, but we always seem to come back to Burger Up. Great food and service, with a craft beer selection that is good, but not great. They also have spirits which some burger places lack. The ambience and decor add to the experience. A solid 4, more craft beers and... More

Great burger joint in the 12 south area that's a fun area. The burger was great and had gluten free buns that were the best I've ever had. Friendly staff and great atmosphere.

Thank luby12
