Great experience! We had the lamb burger and the veggie burger. The sweet potato fries are huge and the portion size was insane! (in a good way) I had the Tennessee Mule cocktail and it was delicious! They have a really nice patio off to the side but the restaurant itself is beautiful and family style seating. We highly recommend!

I was once a vegetarian and I don't care much for burgers. That being said, this place has the best burger I have ever tasted. Everything that came out of the kitchen looked great and the truffle fries are to die for!! New favorite place in Nashville.

Found ourselves in Five Points in Nashville and read reviews for Burger Up and decided to give it a try. Husband got the classic burger and fries and I got the half serving chopped kale salad with burger patty on top. OMG both meals were just delicious! Great prices and the food portions were perfect. Menu has many choices and... More

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
