Despite an unassuming appearance, burgers contain a tremendous amount of flavor. It is undoubtedly one of the world's most extraordinary dishes, and Tennessee has more than its fair share of places to get it.

Where should one go, and which burger joints should one visit? As a result, we created a list of premium burger experiences. So get the pen and paper out, folks – you are going to need planning to work your way through the best burger restaurants in Tennessee!

The Pharmacy Burger Parlor, Tennessee 

The staff at the Pharmacy Burger Parlor believe in serving the very best products at the very best value. They use 100% Tennessee-raised beef for their legendary burgers and 100% pure cane sugar in our sodas. They also boast Music City's hardest-working kitchen that grinds, stuff, and smokes every wurst (sausage) they serve. They prefer to craft their condiments as opposed to purchasing them. Their beer selection is the most unique and meticulously selected you're likely to find. Their biergarten is so welcoming and beautiful that you will find yourself listlessly wasting hours at a time without notice. They are also very proud of their accolades but take more pride in their community.

At the Pharmacy Burger Parlor, their dream burger comes with flavorful juice and is loaded with toppings. Their menu includes legendary burgers, German wurst, a selection of German beers, and a 1930s-era soda fountain serving ice cream soda.

In addition to being as good as any burger in Nashville, the one in Tennessee is easily the best one as well.
