I should've written a review on Gabby's a long time ago. I've been so many times. This place is a Nashville institution. Delicious consistent burgers, fast. I love the experience. Recommend for a to-go lunch! Don't get scared of a line either.

We stopped in after driving through the neighborhood. Had been here before and loved the burgers, and the sweet potato fries. Place is always busy- so expect some wait, but it’s worth it
