Talk about decadence. Fat Bottom’s burger is a beef patty, stuffed with a garlic Boursin cheese, and topped with Muenster cheese, crispy fried onions, and an oatmeal stout with bone marrow butter. Wow.
800 44th Ave N.
It wouldn’t be Nashville Burger Week without something hot, which Germantown Pub was happy to deliver. Their Nashville Hot Burger is a fresh ground beef patty with their signature spice rub, pico de gallo and pepperjack cheese, topped with a toasted brioche bun and a fried jalapeño.
708 Monroe Street
This might be a burger you eat with a fork. The grass-fed, locally-sourced beef patty is served with organic, house-made ingredients, including guacamole, jalapeño cream sauce, guajillo mayo, mozzarella cheese, griddle onions, crunchy house-made tostada, lettuce, and tomato on a house-made bun.

It stands to reason that Burger Republic would have a stand-out burger. This year’s Jamburger is a generously-sized burger, topped with tomato jam, and both what they call west coast onions and their crispy fried Tennessee onions, served on a locally-baked Brioche bun.
Make sure you’re extra hungry before trying the Boxcar Burger at Ergo, which is fresh ground ribeye, brisket, and short rib, with smoked poblano, chicken-fried squash blossom, oaxaca cheese, and topped with onion and garlic aioli, served on an everything bun. Wow.
