Re: “Burger Up

Whoa baby! Killer burgers! My husband and I have been on a quest for awesome burgers in and around Nashville. This place came very close to 5 stars. Very nice vintage decor, although felt a little fancy for a burger joint. Luckily it wasn't crowded, I think we came on the early bird side. The service was... ok, we were not ignored, but not really waited on either. My husband was asked if he wanted a drink refill only after they took our plates away; to be fair, we do eat quickly. As we were waiting for the check, i noticed that all of the men working had the exact same big black plastic hipster eye-glasses and I pondered if that was just a coincidence or part of the uniform.

Ok, now for the burgers. Juicy, extremely flavorful beef, nice char and cooked to a perfect medium rare. The mouth watering bacon that came on my burger was thick cut, sweet and smokey. Really fantastic! The lightly sweet and soft bun complimented the burger and took it to an exceptional level. My only complaint was the size of the burger. It was too small. I wanted more! It was $11 for an, albeit incredibly delicious, but disappointingly small burger. Next time that I go, and I will be back, I will order a double. I'm not exactly sure what that will do to the price, but I think it will be worth it!

Oh, and I loved the fries. They were crisp, salty, and hand cut. The specials also looked amazing, again, next time I will branch out. This visit was for a straight up burger review!

Re: “Los Arcos

For Mexican Food by far this is my favorite spot in Nashville.
Service is great, food is delicious, and the decor breath taking. I took my mom for her birthday, they went out of their way to make her a fresh made margarita instead of serving her a house made with cheap tequila that only gives you a headache. I was impressed, that little detail has me going back at least once a month.

Re: “Peter's Sushi And Thai

Great sushi restaurant in/near the city. I've been to some of the more expensive/upscale sushi bars in the city, they are not even close to having the service, quality and freshness of sushi as Peter's. If you want to be seen go to the other places, if you want great sushi with good service go to Peter's.

Re: “Mellow Mushroom

Living in Nashville since January 2012, it's sad to say that this is (a chain restaurant) has the best Pizza in town; that I've found. Consistent quality, service varies day to day; but you always get good pizza.

Re: “Frothy Monkey

I'm in love with the Frothy Monkey. Friendly service, good food, and WiFi. Definitely has the coffee shop feel with chalkboard specials and early morning hours. I recommend the cider, the Nathan, and the soft chocolate chip cookies. I will return as always, and have yet to have a bad experience. Crossing my fingers.

Re: “August Moon [Closed]

I am sorry the previous reviewer had such a bad experience, but we like August Moon. It's not phenomenal, but it's good. One of our favorites is the pork with black bean sauce. We get take-out from there a few times a month.

Re: “Taziki's

Great little gem tucked away behind the Whole Foods at the McEwen exit out in Cool Springs. I live over on the other side of 65 and I drive over here all the time.

The pasta special they do on Friday is my favorite but I also love the chicken roll ups. Wasn't a huge fan of the baklava but I'm not a dessert girl anyway. Overall the food is just really fresh and healthy so its pretty hard to go wrong on their menu. This is quickly becoming a regular stop for me and my besties.

Re: “Cool Springs Wines & Spirits

Great selection here. I am a huge wino and they just have such a wide variety of wines (and nice craft beers too). Tip - go in the back room for the best wine selections. The clerks here are super helpful too they have pointed me to some delicious cabernets.

Re: “Jackson's Bar And Bistro

The service was okay, but friendly, and the food was great. A great atmosphere, whether it is for a casual date or just going out to eat with friends.

Re: “Swagruha

Great flavors, but the goat was very tough! The young girl said it was their most popular dish, and the spice was just right; I will try it again - maybe I just got a bad goat. Along with the Channa Masala (Chick Peas in a scrumptious curry cream sauce) it was almost more food than I could eat! The samosas are savory and (again) BIG, served with a hot/sweet sauce that really balances well with their cardamom. Included for the $6.50 price were two curries and a mountain of saffron rice, naan, and a super-sweet rice pudding to cool you off after the feast. {Indian accent here}-> Most excellent repast I must say, tank you beddy much Swagruha!
