Burger Up

“A Burger Joint?  Well, it’s really much more than that…

“The idea of Burger Up was born in November of 2008. I remember the day, the phone conversation. I was talking with a developer friend about what concept would do well in this corner space. (@12th and Paris) We discussed a quality burger place – a community-driven restaurant – a place people of all ages would feel welcome – an opportunity to take the kids out to dinner too – A place appropriate for a business lunch, a first date, an anniversary. Aaron, my developer friend thought that all sounded great and responded with “who is going to open it?” Within a few seconds, I replied “I will”. That week a lease was signed and close to 18 months later the doors were open.”  read more ›

Portland Brew

2605 12th Avenue South  |   Nashville, TN 37204



2905 12th Avenue South  |   Nashville, TN 37204  |  615.499.4793  |  slocolocal.com

“Most American eaters have become accustomed to processed, mass-produced food when they eat out and no longer expect art from the kitchen. Our industry has used technology, science, the efficiencies of scale and subsidies to produce food at artificially cheap prices. A reawakening of a community fed up (pun intended) with modern food has created a push toward local, organic, “real” food bought from farmers growing without the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides, antibiotics and genetic modification. To the argument that “real” food is too expensive, we respectfully disagree and promise sustainably sourced food at affordable prices – prices that are in line with shops across the city and country, while using nose-to-tail cookery, making everything in-house, utilizing the most sustainable product available and prepared in the same amount of time it takes at any quick service joint.”  read more ›

The clean and playful design of all of the restaurants, the speed at which “from scratch” Southern, Mexican and Southwestern dishes are delivered, and the taste of such original selections creates a dining experience unlike many others.” read more ›
