If you’re looking for a top-notch burger, The Pharmacy is your place. The Pharmacy claims to be Nashville’s “Wurst-Burger” Joint. It was voted Nashville’s Best New Restaurant in 2012 and Nashville’s #1 Burger in 2013 and 2014. Locals enjoy this uniquely Nashville restaurant because it is not only unique to Nashville, but it is also unlike any other burger joint you have experienced. It is not for individuals on a diet, but definitely for those looking for a great burger experience!
First and foremost, we must touch on the distinct burgers that are made with 100% Tennessee beef. Cheeseburgers are one of the most common American staples, but at The Pharmacy you don’t just get one slice of cheese – you get three (Yellow Cheddar, Swiss, Muenster)! If you love hot dogs and burgers and want the best of both worlds, order the Chili Burger. The Chili Burger is topped with chili, sour cream, chives, and cheddar. Another burger option unique to The Pharmacy is the Stroganoff Burger that is topped with mushroom stroganoff béchamel, sour cream, caramelized onions and Swiss cheese. Guacamole lovers should indulge in the Mission City Burger made with guacamole, pico de gallo, slow-cooked black beans and horchata crema fresca. All of the burgers’ patties can be substituted for a turkey burger. Another option besides the beef patty is a chickpea patty, as offered on the Falafel Burger, making it a great vegetarian option (created with vegetarian chickpea patty, yogurt raita, goat cheese, tomato and onion). The Pharmacy offers cool burger toppings like beer mustard, maple mustard, horseradish mustard, and beer gravy.
The Pharmacy is not just a burger joint – they also have an impressive line up of German bratwurst. Every bratwurst served is grinded, stuffed and smoked in house. The fabulous selection of bratwursts includes a Currywurst (classic brat poached and simmered with pils beer, topped with curried paprika and tomato sauce) and a Jagerwurst (pork wurst with coriander, garlic, mustard seed, nutmeg and a hint of ginger). Each of the burgers and wursts are served with the choice of a side. I recommend the tater tots because each tot is crisped to perfection.
Now, what’s a burger without a milkshake or beer?! If you’re going to indulge, you better go all the way. The Pharmacy is a beer garden with plenty of beer options to go with your entrée. However, the soda shop is where the real fun is. Their sodas contain no preservatives, caffeine, corn syrup, or artificial flavors. Guests can choose to indulge in one of The Pharmacy’s “Favorite Sodas:” Creamsicle, Strawberry Ginger, Egg Cream Soda, or Cream Soda. Milkshakes and malts come in the standard vanilla, chocolate and strawberry flavors and can even be spiked. Martin’s ice cream sodas, shakes and malts are perfect throughout the warmer months. These drinks are the perfect way to round out your meal!
For a delicious burger experience, visit The Pharmacy – you won’t regret it.
