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.

The Triathlon black bean and quinoa burger is amazing. Couple it with the sweet potato fries with their aoli sauce. Have a great craft beer as well. The environment is very relaxed and casual, but not commercialized A definite spot to visit as a great taste and look of Nashville. Don't worry,they also have spectacular bison burgers for the meat... More

Second visit in 2 years (out-of-town visitor). Still very high quality food, tasty, great atmosphere, and good drinks. A very friendly spot. ALL the burgers (8 of us) were very fresh and tasty. Excellent onion rings, too (good happy-hour deals).

I was looking for a great burger and this definitely met my expectations. The burger was soo good (I had the Ramsey one), ans the fries were insane. The trip didn't come cheaply though, the burgers are quite expensive but you get what you pay for.

Had a late dinner at Burger Up while visiting Nashville and it was a nice time! Recommended to us as a local and it was not a let down. Great burgers and fries. Stick to that though - the salad certainly wasn't as good. Cool environment inside even though we ended up sitting outside which was a bit quieter and... More

In a normal city this would be the best burger place. In Nashville with all the competition its a toss up, but this place is one of the best, if not the best. Really enjoyed the burger and the truffle fries. Can not go wrong going here.

I eat gluten free snd was thrilled they served organic humanely raised burgers with gluten free buns!!! Awesome coffee too. My friend has fried pickles and loved them. Everything is fresh organic and local and they even make their own catch up. Great place to hang out have a drink have lunch and dinner. Great atmosphere, service, fresh food! Great... More
