The burger menu is unique with sustainable ingredients. Very cool atmosphere and located on 12 South so you can shop after you eat. They even make their own ketchup. I like to split a burger with a friend and enjoy a beer from one of the local breweries. You must check it out!

Burger Up has excellent burgers, fries, salads, and chicken sandwiches. Overall the food is just well done. The spot itself is cool & stays crowded. Parking is on the side streets. Service is somewhat spotty. I recommend the patty melt.

Best burgers and fries around. Every time I'm in Nashville, I can't help but eat at Burger Up because I crave their truffle fries. The service is always great, and the food has never let me down.

I have to say the burgers looked amazing however we went In for a healthy choice and were not disappointed. We had the kale salad with grilled chicken. Awesome !! Totally recommend this burger place for some kale too!

Went on a Friday night, which is definitely always crowded. However, the wait was over an hour and then once we sat it took another hour for our food to come. When it did come every single order had something wrong with it. The food was underwhelming to boot - very strong truffle and aioli taste. The hamburgers were just... More

I sat at the bar and waited while my wife shopped. I started out just having a beer and my buddy had a glass of wine. I was not hungry. Soon I could notice a perfect process from the bar to what was coming from the kitchen. Everything was working like a Swiss watch, ever plate that came to the... More

We went for lunch on a Sunday. Actually, my friends also went on Friday. "Best burger in the world" said the met eaters, but I said "Best black Bean Burger in the world!" And my other girlfriend said "Best Kale Salad in the world!" Great service. Fresh open atmosphere!

Stopped in for a quick dinner and we were very happy with burgers and service. We both had the classic burger and they were cooked to our liking and plentiful. Fries were fresh and hot and cocktails tasty.

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.

Thank Jen D
