In medieval Germany, hamburgers were held in such high esteem that they were frequently elected to mayor, hence the word "burgermeister." Today's Groupon treats Nashville to its own master of the hamburgerly arts. For $9, you get $20 worth of satisfying bites at Gabby's Burgers & Fries, which Nashville Scene deems the Best Burger in Nashville. This Groupon is good for dine-in or to-go. Gabby's is open Monday–Thursday 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Friday 10:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., and closed on weekends.
Gabby's menu boasts a bevy of big-flavor burgers made from grass-fed beef such as the signature double Gabby burger with a slice of American cheese for each patty ($6.95), the BBQ burger with charbroiled, caramelized barbecue sauce ($5.95), and the marinated chicken burger ($5.95). For diners who'd rather be fed grass than grass-fed beef, the Coreen Burger tops a black bean, brown-rice veggie patty with barbecue sauce and Swiss cheese ($5.95). All sandwiches come with a side of either Gabby's buzz-worthy sweet-potato fries, regular fresh-cut fries, a cup of chili, or cole slaw. Everything is served up with palpable cheeriness by proprietor Doug and his wife Coreen, who are celebrating a year of living their dream of owning their own restaurant after a frightening year spent living the dream where they're falling.
Prove your love for hamburgers in a way that naming your first child Hamburger never could with today's Groupon to Gabby's.
- For so many reasons, I love this little burger joint nestled in the crook of the road where Chestnut and Humphreys streets meet. Housed in the legendary Hap Townes building near Greer Stadium, Gabby's is everything that's good about a dive—intimate, affordable, unpretentious—yet it's spanking clean...As good as the burger was, it was the sweet potato fries that left us talking. Long planks were deep-fried until the dark brown surface concealed a steaming bright orange core. (The occasional fried nub at the bottom of the pile is like a piece of candy that melts in your mouth.) – Carrington Fox, Nashville Scene
- There are no bones about it. They make a good burger, at a good price…and pride themselves on friendly service. – Pickled and Fried
- I go for the Gabby Burger (double cheeseburger with everything), fries, and then I dip whatever is nearby in the wasabi mayo. I'm telling you, it's the best. – Cameron Daigle, Urbanspoon
- From their wall-of-fame in the doorway to the friendliness of the staff to the food - its [sic] all great. You are treated like a regular from the first time that you are there. – Ryan Harmon, Urbanspoon
