Jack Brown’s Beer & Burger Joint
1123 3rd Avenue North, Nashville, TN 37208
The What’s Cookin’ Germantown Crew had heard so much about Jack Brown’s we just had to try it for lunch. Well, we got a surprise when I ordered a cheese burger with onion and pickle. “We can’t do that today” the waiter replied. What? Out of all our vast wisdom we had failed to read the menu. Should we stay or should we go? We decided to stay and find out what the deal was that a burger joint didn’t sell the gold standard of the hamburger world.
Here’s the deal:
THE BURGERS ARE 100% ALL NATURAL WAGYU BEEF.
DON’T ASK FOR LETTUCE AND TOMATO, OUR BURGERS ARE PREPARED SIMPLE AND BASIC. OUR SPECIALS ARE A CREATIVE TWIST ON AN AMERICAN CLASSIC.
Each day they have a special. We were there on Thursday so it was the Nacho Libre.
The Nacho What? – Burger topped with diced black olives and jalapeños, Pepper jack cheese, green onions mixed in sour cream, re-fried beans and house made tortilla chips.
NEVER HEARD OF SUCH A THING !
We said “OK give us one”
They don’t just have one burger available each day they have more.Take a look: Menu
While we were waiting we took a look around the place.
OK STOP !! BURGERS ARE READY.
Looks good , smells better and BOOM the taste was out of this world. No wonder the place was filling up. They get so busy they have valet parking. For a burger Joint? YES !!
Oh look, they have a patio and Corn Hole:
You can walk from Germantown a quick Uber or Lift from downtown Nashville.
Come on — you will want a beer or two. Enjoy yourself.
We give Jack Brown’s a Five Finger lick rating.
WHO DOESN’T WANT THEIR OWN BAR?
Jack Brown’s Beer & Burger Joint is the childhood dream of two best friends, Aaron Ludwig and Mike Sabin. They had always talked about opening their own bar back in the day while collecting beer cans and skateboarding. Aaron had spent 15 years in the business world operating a ski and snowboard shop in Harrisonburg. Mike spent 20 years in South Beach Miami in the restaurant business. After one crappy day at work in 2008, Aaron called Mike to propose a “what if” scenario and the rest as the saying goes, is history. Aaron was into craft beer and Mike was a chef of 4 restaurants; a beer and burger joint was born.
The menu is purposely simple. Jack Brown’s is a bar, that sells a great burger. It is not a restaurant trying to please all tastes. They focus on: do one thing and do it right. There is an amazing menu of craft beer ranging from the local darlings to rare beers from around the world.
They designed the bar that they like hanging out in. They grew up as drinking buddies so it wasn’t too difficult a task. Although there might not be a rhyme or reason to the décor, it sure gives you something to talk about.
The staff is a key part of Jack Brown’s. They have been trained to guide customers through the world of beer and to make sure you have a good time.
Mike and Aaron hope you enjoy the experience of your beer and your burger and hope you have a blast when you’re here. Good food, good beer and good times.
