Pharmacy Burger is honoring some of Nashville’s most iconic restaurants with their Nashville Burger Time Machine, creating a unique burger each month, inspired by some of the city’s most popular eateries, which unfortunately no longer exist.
The specialty burgers began in September, and will run through February of 2024, each month recreating or making a burger inspired by the popular restaurants. September’s burger is a Rotier’s burger, honoring the Nashville favorite, which closed in 2021. The burger features a generously-sized classic beef patty with extra cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion and pickles, served on French bread.
The Rotier’s burger is a nod to the classic food Rotier’s was known for during its almost 75 years in operation, while puting a new, classic Pharmacy Burger twist on it was well.
Other nostalgic restaurants scheduled be highlighted as part of the Nashville Burger Time Machine are Gold Rush, Edgefield Sports Bar & Grill, King Solomon Gyros, Arnold’s Country Kitchen, and Omni Hut.
Daniel Frazier, Director of Operations for The Pharmacy Burger, has been a “burger-lover his whole life,” per a press release. Born and raised in Nashville, it was Frazier’s idea to pay homage to some of the restaurants that helped shape Music City, in Pharmacy Burger’s own unique way.
The specialty burgers will be offered at both the 731 McFerrin Avenue location, and inside the Assembly Food Hall, located at 5055 Broadway.
In addition to the Time Machine offerings, Pharmacy Burger offers an eclectic menu, offering meat and vegetarian options, including their Falafel and Black Bean Burger, plus a full bar, and alcoholic (or non-alcoholic) milkshake options.
