Nashville’s “Wurst” Burger Joint?
The Burgers at the Pharmacy are some of the best I have had anywhere and definitely my favorite burger in Nashville. 100% of the beef used in their burgers is raised in Tennessee, the condiments are made on site, and the buns come from a local bakery. This is some seriously good food. During our last trip there, they were celebrating “Burger Week” and had a couple of specials just for the occasion. I went with a BBQ burger topped with french fried onions, and my better half had the original Pharmacy Burger, and we were both thrilled with how our food turned out.
Truthfully, it was difficult to pick what I wanted to eat because everything on the menu looked incredible. Did I mention that they grind, smoke and stuff their own wurst here too? I really want to get back soon and try the bratwurst.
I would like to tell you that I have some amazing pictures of the food to share with you, but here’s the thing: I was hungry and it looked entirely too good to wait on pictures.
Old Fashioned Soda Fountain
If you are going to be eating a really good burger, you need something to wash it down with. The Pharmacy has an old Fashioned soda fountain and serves amazing phosphates, milkshakes, and ice cream sodas. With my burger, I had a creme soda and a chocolate milk shake for dessert. Both of these were incredible. The creme soda had just the right amount of lemon, and the milkshake was the perfect texture. I didn’t feel like I was going to rupture a blood vessel drinking it. If you prefer commercial beverages, you can also get Mexican Coca-cola in the bottle and a couple of other sodas.
Beer! Along with making my favorite burger in Nashville, The Pharmacy has one of the best selections of beer in town too. With everything from German imports to local craft beers, they have the perfect beer for you. There is no better place to enjoy that brew than in the biergarten attached to the restaurant. Lots of outdoor seating and plenty of greenery it is easy to see why Nashville loves this place.
