Traveling from PA to Nashville and didn't want the typical fast-food dinner stop. Used them near me feature of Trip Advisor and it led us to this gem. Excellent burgers! Sweets fries and Parmesan fries served with delicious dipping sauces. Highly recommend!

You can't go wrong with a burger at the Burger Bar. This place is historical and has probably entertained several celebrities. Also popular with locals. Their breakfast is also good, and one of the few places to eat on Saturday morning in the downtown area. My husband likes their milkshakes.
