There isn’t really a wrong time or place to eat a burger, but Burger Up in 12South is great for when you want to sit down for one and have a good cocktail too. With large communal tables and a huge bar, it works just as well for a casual date as it does for dropping in for a solo burger and a drink. Burger-wise, we’re partial to the Woodstock, which comes with bacon, white cheddar, and their strangely addicting Jack Daniel’s maple ketchup. If you want something that won’t knock you out though, order the Troyathlon quinoa burger instead.
