    The Woodstock burger with Benton's bacon and sweetwater white cheddar is absolutely delectable - the best burger that I've had in Nash!
  • Carly Pearce
    Burger Up is hands down my favorite go to in Nashville. I love the atmosphere, wine selection and they have the best kale salad and sweet potato fries in town!

    Sat at the bar and got excellent service from Ethan. Food was awesome. Their home made ketchup is amazing. I'll definitely come back if I'm in town again.

    The Woodstock remains the best seller, but I personally love the veggie options (try the Marathon, a black bean and quinoa patty and a kale salad). Read more

    Burgers are awesome and so are the fries but the fried pickle chips are not very good and the cheddar cheese powder on top of them is just wrong and weird.

    Get the Bison Burger, except ask to sub fried chicken instead of the bison. Get the delicious fries as your side. Perfect off-the-menu meal.

    The patty melt is excellent. Consider having the kale salad with it, instead of fries. Yummy!

    Like christmas in my mouth. Lamb burger is amazing. Ask for the Dabney (not on menu) to quench your thirst, compliments the truffle fries

    I had the truffle fries and the lamb burger. Both so good! I couldn't finish them. The homemade mustard and ketchup were pluses.

    Get the gluten-free bun for your awesome Burger-Up burger!! You'll love it and you won't have that white flour "bloat"!

    If you're lucky enough to be here when their seasonal couscous is a "side" option, get it! Healthier than fries and freaking delicious.

    Was expecting fast food burgers but definitely more upscale. Plan on spending $12-15 per person for a gourmet burger and fries. I tried the blackbean burger and truffle fries. Delicious!

    Went for the Bison Burger and very tasty if a little dry. Krispy Kreme bread pudding is tasty but a bit much on the sugar scale, glade I had it but it's a one time thing

    The kale salad with a bison patty. The sweet potato fries (be sure to ask for the aioli sauce with these!)

    Vegans/Vegetarians: the ketchup is not vegetarian. It contains Worcestershire sauce (anchovies!). And the black bean quinoa burger contains the ketchup, so it's not vegetarian either.

    The burgers here are arguably some of the best in Nashville...just don't ask the story behind why it's nicknamed 'murder up'.

    Bison burger. Add egg. The only other two words you need to know...other than thank you. You're welcome.

    Woodstock burger was good. Truffle fries are $1 extra - not bad. Way better than umami burger in Cali.

    Food was great, but the waiter was off his game. Couldn't try dessert because the waiter just brought the checks. And they were wrong... If it wasn't for the food, it may not be worth the wait.

    Disappointed. Med-rare burger came out well-done & despite hearing good things about them being friendly to those with gluten allergies, the bartender / server taking our order wasn't helpful at all.

    Fries were WAY too salty. The burger was good, but I've had equally good burgers for half the price. Too expensive for a decent burger and fries I couldn't eat.
