Nashville may be known for its barbecue, but there are also some epic burger joints in Tennessee’s capital city. From classic all-American dive bar burgers to modern twists on a beloved favorite, you’ll find burger restaurants across the city serving up the juiciest, tastiest, most delicious burgers around.

Whether your burger patty of choice is made from prime grass-fed beef, Wagyu, chicken, turkey, or beans, you’re sure to find a hotspot in Nashville to tempt your taste buds and satiate your craving. With so many burger joints to choose from across the city, the only problem you’ll have is deciding which one to try!

It’s a dilemma indeed, but don’t worry — we’ve rounded up 15 of our favorite burger bars in Nashville for 2023, in no particular order. There’s something here to suit all tastes and budgets, from burger joints in East Nashville to Germantown’s finest offerings. Want a side of fries with that?

M.L.Rose Craft Beer & Burgers

With a choice of three locations across the city and a vast burger menu, it’s easy to see why “Nashville Lifestyles” named M.L.Rose Craft Beer & Burgers one of their top 10 spots for burgers in the city. After all, has there ever been a better combo than juicy burgers and crisp, cold craft beer?

The burgers here are a step up from the usual offerings, with imaginative combos loaded with flavor. Try the Southern Belle, served on a sweet potato bun with crispy tobacco onions, pimento cheese, Duke’s mayo, and Belle Meade Bourbon barbecue sauce. Or spice it up with the Sgt. Pepper Burger with habanero jack, serrano-bleu cheese, grilled jalapeño, chipotle ranch, onion, and tomato. One reviewer on Yelp recommended the Belgian burger, while a Tripadvisor reviewer said, “The burgers were fantastic. Some of the best in recent memory.”

Burgers here come with a side of waffle fries or house chips, and for a couple of bucks extra, you can upgrade to sweet potato waffle fries, a side salad, or jalapeño slaw. Don’t fancy beef? Sub an Impossible patty or opt for the Bakersfield Burger with a housemade turkey patty.

Wash everything down with a rotating choice of dozens of craft beers on tap, plus a wide range of bottles and cans. The cocktail menu has some interesting offerings, too, like the Housemade Mango Ranch Water with reposado tequila, Liquid Death Mango sparkling water, fresh lime, orange, and agave.
