1) The Bunganut Pig Pub & Eatery – 1143 Columbia Avenue Franklin, TN 37064

Since 1986 this pub style joint has been serving up Black Angus specialty burgers that are melt in your mouth delicious.  You can even enjoy live music and a little dancing.  In 1997, they opened another location in Murfreesboro.

2) Burger Shack – 7175 Nolensville Road Nolensville, TN 37135

Located in Nolensville, features what former West Coasters will attest to as a serious copycat IN-N-OUT burger.  As former west coasters ourselves, we had to try it out.  Burger Shack can certainly fool the taste buds into thinking we are biting into a little piece of west coast magic that is IN-N-OUT burger without ever leaving out back yard.  You can even get their version of IN-N-OUT’s Animal Style Fries – – they call the Shack Fries.

3) Burger Republic – 6900 Lenox Village Dr., Suite 22 Nashville, TN 37211

From the Tennessee Burger to the Truffle Tots this eatery has carved out a niche for making not only great burgers, but some delicious milkshakes in some crazy-delicious combinations.  Did someone say Nutella? Yep, they’ve got that – and if you want it SPIKED, they’ve got that too!

4) Southside Grill – 6601 Sugar Valley #101 Drive Nashville, TN 37201

Three words come to mind when I think of Southside Grill.  Effortless, Cool and Delicious.  The vibe there is the kind of cool that appears effortless.  However, there are so many incredible details that go into all that is Southside Grill that foodies will appreciate.  We had the pleasure of dining with a couple regulars and the attention and service of the staff was bar none.  Refreshing to see that the art of treating customers well has not died.  The burgers were absolutely incredible.  Juicy, great flavor….a real burger.

Don’t just go for a burger though, their menu features delicious options including a gigantic slice of chocolate cake.  You’ve been warned.  (You can thank us later).



A quick disclaimer: ** Pharmacy – you’re on our list!  We tried at 8pm on Sunday night and there was a wait of more than an hour.  So, we are certainly going to have to find out how to get in on that action – – if it’s worth waiting an hour for, we want to try it!

We need YOUR help!  Can you help us?  We’d like to add a # 5 to our list.
