Business partners Drew Jackman and Jeff Warne opened Burger Republic in Lenox Village Town Center off Nolensville Pike in 2012 after both had experienced success on the corporate level. Since then, the South Nashville eatery has garnered a reputation as a place of comfort and quality by offering something for everyone. In January of 2014, Burger Republic opened the second restaurant in the Gulch.
In addition to the use of only certified Black Angus beef, what makes the burgers at Burger Republic stand out are the inventive accoutrements, such as Vermont aged white cheddar and Guinness-braised bacon for The Burger Republic burger and lump crab and hollandaise sauce for the Burger Oscar. For an adventure in the capabilities of what can be sandwiched between two brioche buns, this is the place to go.
Aside from the burgers, Burger Republic now serves 20 beers on tap, has flat-screen televisions on every wall for sports and, to top it all off, has hand-spun and -mixed milkshakes. For those over 21, the spiked milkshakes add a modern twist to the traditional favorite.
For those on the never-ending quest to find the best burger in town, Burger Republic presents a quality and respect to be reckoned with. Since opening in 2012, business has boomed, and the sister restaurant in the Gulch is booming as well.
