An ever-expanding array of Tennessee and surrounding area farms are represented on the Burger Up menu. Seasonally that number may fluctuate a bit. You have no idea how proud they are to encourage thoughtful consuming – it seeps in the minds and hearts of the kitchen staff and is lovingly translated to you. You could visit local Farmers’ Markets and recreate a vast majority of the menu.

In addition to the use of only certified Black Angus beef, what makes the burgers at Burger Republic stand out are the inventive accoutrements, such as Vermont aged white cheddar and Guinness-braised bacon for The Burger Republic burger and lump crab and hollandaise sauce for the Burger Oscar. For an adventure in the capabilities of what can be sandwiched between two brioche buns, this is the place to go.

People literally drive for an HOUR just for the fries. And over it all is a fun atmosphere of good music and laughing people. Just a fun place with great food. Worth talking about!
