The level of service and food is a 5+! When you walk in, the smiles and greetings run deep from the staff. The food is equally as awesome and my fav is the Gabby Burger. Sweet Potato fries are killer. Stop in and say hi to Doug and his staff. Must visit when you are in Nashville.

Found this delightful hole in the wall and we are glad we did! Upon entering, be sure to grab a menu and get in line to order. Once you place your order, you receive a number, then go quickly grab a seat. The hamburgers are enormous--I couldn't finish mine. I ordered the Bacon Swiss and it was delicious. I'm not... More

OMG...what a find! The burger, sweet potato fries and milkshake were the absolute best. Staff was very friendly! We went on a Saturday afternoon and didn't have to wait more than 10 mins to get a our food ordered and to the table. Must try if you are in the area.

A great burger does not need a fancy establishment. In fact, some of the best burgers I've ever had have come from places you might never expect by looking at them on the outside. Gabby's is one of those places. As others have written, this location has been a "landmark" in the Nashville area for decades, beginning with the original... More

This place has become famous and if you want to get a decent seat, you want to come early. Lots of burger choices, and the fries are the best. They are fresh cut; in fact, you can watch the guy as he slices the potatoes right there near the counter. My burger was a little pink, so you might want... More

So, I had been telling co workers that I liked burger joints and my wife was a burger lover as well. I was told I would be taken to Gabby's. We pulled up and it was a small little hole in the wall type of building. I ordered my seamus (SHAY mus) burger and sweet potato fries and went to... More

Someone told us about this place the day before while visiting from Richmond va. My wife had gone to her meeting so I decided to go. I walked in this tiny place at 11 am and it was already half full. To make a long story short I sat down with my bacon Swiss burger took 1 bite and immediately... More

I've lived in Nashville my entire life. Visited Gabby's twice. The first time was near closing one day and the food was average. I gave them the benefit of the doubt because of it being closing time. Today I was craving a burger. I enjoy standing in long lines of trendy restaurants from time to time because of the full... More

I had this delivered to me so i can only comment on the food itself and not service or location. I'd heard the burgers were good and as a 9 yr Nashville Transplant I've grown accustom to avoiding hot spots in Nashville because who really has time to wait in a line for food? I'm a full time student, a... More
