Best Burgers in Nashville
Craving a good burger can spring on someone at any time, and the best way to satisfy those cravings are to hit up some of Nashville’s most popular burger joints. With one-of-a-kind craft burgers or even a perfected classic burger, Nashville burger restaurants will have you leaving full and satisfied.
Gabby’s Burgers and Fries
Located right across the street of the old abandoned Nashville Sounds stadium, Gabby’s is the place to go for a “no-frills” all-American burger. Inside is your local burger joint, complete with an open grill and classic decorations. One of the most popular burgers is the chili cheese burger, complete with a heaping helping of fresh fries. But nothing beats the classic “Gabby Burger,” that is just 2 patties’, cheese and basic toppings cooked to perfection. All burgers have grass-fed patties and are served to you within minutes of ordering.
M.L Rose Craft Burgers
With 2 locations, one on Franklin Pike and the other on Charlotte Pike, M.L Rose has quickly become one of the most popular, eclectic and fun place to grab a craft burger. If you are in the mood for a burger that is not too out of the ordinary but still has a different spin on it that you would not find anywhere else, then come to M.L Rose. Their waffle fries come in multiple ways, loaded, cheesy, blue cheese, sweet potato and Carolina sweet. Each are so delicious; you will want to order all of them!
Make sure you find the time to try The Pharmacy, a classic staple in East Nashville with a very popular biergarten (beer garden). Voted Nashville’s best burger time and time again, it is no surprise that the burger parlor burgers are delicious. But what really makes them great? Try some of their homemade topping like beer mustard, Horchata Cream Fresca, maple mustard, wasabi aioli and curry ketchup. May as well order yourself a root beer float or a Kentucky mint phosphate since they have their own soda shop.
Winner of countless awards and burger competitions in Nashville, Burger Republic knows how to create a mouthwatering craft burger, and it shows. Like in the “96 Burger” which received the highest rating in the 2014 World Food Championships (a 96) with angus beef blended with bleu cheese, topped with honey-balsamic glazed mushrooms, onions and bacon, then topped with shoestring fries and garlic-horseradish aioli. Or the Anniversary Burger #3, the 2015 Nashville Burger Brawl winner complete with Yazoo smoked porter BBQ sauce, slaw, pork belly and gouda. Also while you’re treating yourself, order a spiked milkshake to shake things up. Check them out in Lenox Village or the Gulch.
