The location is a bit odd sort of industrial estate meets Marshalling yards. Busy inside. Efficiently took our orders while we found a table (outside) I had the Gabby burger with some bacon, also a bowl of chili. Very pleasant. It looks a bit of a dive but great food and staff. Try it !!

Great burger! I had the bacon swiss. Delicious. I could not stop eating the fries with the wasabi mayo, though. YUM. YUM. YUM. There's a secret menu on their website--password is seamus (which is one of the burgers and the name of the owner's son; the daughter is Gabby). So glad I took Lyft here on the way to the... More

Excellent burgers! The flavor is terrific and it's cooked to perfection (medium to medium well). Very juicy. I also got chili and that too was terrific. Not spicy but packing good flavor. The only thing I'd say NOT to get is a milkshake. Very runny and lacking any flavor. Highly recommend it here!

This is such a cute establishment and I love how they are true to theirselves, not willing to expand or add locations, but staying simple! My husband ordered a mushroom swiss burger and loved it!!! I had the quinoa burger and it was fairly good. However, I ordered the sweet potato fries and they were so disappointing that I could... More

Enjoyed a birthday lunch with my son who has recently moved into this area of town. Lots of folks coming in during lunch but good service. We both enjoyed the small hamburger and one of us ordered the regular fries and one ordered sweet potato fries. It's wonderful to see a local business serving local grass fed meat with a... More

This place was probably a gas station it it's former life but now it is a no frills hamburger joint. Everyone who works here is happy and friendly. The burgers and fries are some of the best we have ever had. The prices were very reasonable and most of the customers seem to be locals. The place is only open... More

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.
