Disclosure: We are a member of the Nashville Food Bloggers. This review was written after receiving a free meal from Hoss’ Loaded Burgers. Our opinion is ours alone and hope you enjoy our take on this Nashville-area eatery.
Ever had a “Juicy Lucy” Burger? You know, a big, tender burger stuffed with cheese on the inside? You take a big bite and the melty-goodness oozes out. Yes, that’s what Hoss’ Loaded Burgers serves in true Nashville style. Oh, and killer-crispy fries and a homemade Concrete Custard to die for. Known for their signature-style burgers out of their Food Truck since 2011, Hoss’ Loaded Burgers is now available in their first brick and mortar location. Keep reading to learn more.
What is Hoss’ Loaded Burgers?
Hoss’ Loaded Burgers was founded by owner Dallas Shaw in 2011. This is the guy that brought the Juicy Lucy-style burger to the Music City. (Say “Thank you, Dallas!”)
The Hoss Food Truck has been cruising around downtown for almost a decade, serving great flavors using only quality ingredients. You can catch the Food Truck – Here’s their online schedule.
Hoss’ Loaded Burgers is featured on many “top food truck” lists like Thrillist & The Guardian, as well as on The Cooking Channel’s Eat Street and rated as the #1 “Thing To Eat In Nashville Before You Die” by Thrillist.
The owners now offer their menu of locally sourced beef burgers and custom custards in sit-down fashion, too. And we are so glad they did. Nashville restaurants are popping up everywhere, and we want to clue you in on one of our new fave spots to eat.
Hoss’ Loaded Burgers is NOW open in the Burkitt Commons area of Nolensville in a bright, clean and family-friendly style restaurant. The location is easy to get to right off of Nolensville Road, just minutes from the Interstate.
I felt like I was in a new-meets-old diner. The staff is super friendly and there is plenty of seating for your whole family.
The menu is simple and easy to understand, featuring the Hoss Signature “Old Timer” and “Hoss ” burgers available all year round. Every month they feature a Specialty Burger. (Surprises, y’all!)
What we Ate:
My fave part about Hoss’ menu? Straight to the point. Me? I had to have the classic Hoss Burger. This loaded burger starts with a custom ground-beef blend from locally sourced Porter Road Butcher.
Then the burger is stuffed with cheddar, topped with hickory smoked BBQ sauce, onion crispers, Benton’s bacon, and fresh cilantro. So good! You’ve got to check it out for yourself.
The taste and quality of the beef really stands out to me. Juicy but not greasy, the burgers are great.
My friend Suzy picked their monthly special: The Big Easy Burger.
This New Orleans-inspired burger is stuffed with creamy provolone, topped with Cajun spices, homemade Creole rémoulade, and red onion.
All burgers are served on bakery-style buns made fresh daily from Nashville’s own Charpier’s Bakery. Or you can pick a lettuce wrap for a low-carb, gluten-free option.
We totally went for the gourmet bun. Because cheeseburgers.
Of course, no meal at Hoss’ Loaded Burgers is complete without a side of crispy spiced fries and a Concrete Custard. Make your own, or go with the German Chocolate Custard like I did. WOW!
You can only get the custard at the restaurant, so head over to Nolensville. This is a Nashville Must-Try.
Hoss’ Loaded Burgers + Frozen Custard offers a rotation of craft beers sourced from local breweries. Loving all of the local touches.
The place is very bright, colorful and CLEAN. Staff is SUPER friendly and knowledgeable about their burgers and sides.
Ordering is a little cumbersome. My eyes really want an overhead menu at the counter, but you have to order off of a printed menu. You put in your order, pay up front, take a number and have a seat. Drinks and condiments are self-serve fast-food style. The food is out quickly, but made to order.
The first impression of the burger is that it would be “bigger” based on the price and the pictures. It came out smaller than expected. However, it is very filling and MORE than enough for a hearty appetite.
The Cajun spiced fries kick ass. Super hot, super crisp, and the perfect side dish for any burger you pick.
And the Custard. Y’all, I would drive down to Nolensville just for the custard. No joke. Smooth, creamy, love it. Best custard I’ve ever had. (And I’ve eaten quit a bit of frozen goodies.)
If you are looking for a casual place to grab a gourmet bite to eat that is affordable and friendly, I highly recommend Hoss’ Burgers. 🙂
