Burgers of Clarksville: 8 local hamburger joints you need to check out

CLARKSVILLE, TN (CLARKSVILLE NOW) – We all know what to expect at the big chains, but there are so many local restaurants with their own unusual flair for burgers.

Here’s a list of burger joints in Clarksville that you need to check out, from basic but mouth-watering diner patties to fancy artisanal gourmet sandwiches.

1. Johnny’s Big Burgers: This hometown staple is located at 428 College St. across from Austin Peay State University’s campus. They won Silver for Best Burger in the 2021 Clarksville’s Best competition. Johnny’s is open 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The burger is in their name, and you definitely need to get that with their famous crinkle fries. While you’re there, don’t forget to try their fried honeybun with ice cream dessert.

2. Blackhorse Pub & Brewery: Located at 132 Franklin St., this restaurant recently reopened their new and improved lobby with old flavors to love. For burgers, try the Cletus (with fried green tomato, pimento cheese and tomato jam), the Volcano (with pineapple-jalapeno jam, peppercorn bacon, pepper jack cheese, fried onion strings and creamy sriracha sauce) or the Hangover (with bacon, pepper jack cheese, fried egg and bloody mary aioli). They are open on Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., on Friday and Saturday until midnight, and on Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.

3. Brgrs N More: Located at 1780 Tiny Town Road, their burger menu features a Z-Brgr (with Philly steak and an egg), a Munchy Brgr (with fries between two patties) and much more. They are open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday through Thursday, and they are open until 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

4. Dock 17: Located at 2231-D Madison St. right next to the City Forum, this restaurant is fairly new but has made a big impact. Signature burgers include the Sumo (with pickled red cabbage, goat cheese, portabella mushroom, green onions and sake sauce), the Bayou (with Cajun remoulade, capicola ham, grilled onions and bourbon jam) and Smokey & the Brisket (with queso, smoked brisket, lime, avocado, cilantro and tabasco). Their hours are from 3 to 10 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday. 3 to 11 p.m. on Friday, and they are open earlier on weekends for brunch.

5. Kelly’s Big Burger: Located at 405 N Riverside Drive, this burger joint is open 24/7 and is another classic in the Clarksville area. The diner serves burgers in most any combo, including with gouda, bleu cheese or feta.

6. Mickey’s Downtown: Another newer favorite, this restaurant is at 125 Franklin St. Among their options are the Top Heavy (with gouda between two patties, bacon, jalapenos and onion rings) and the D Burger (with Havarti, bacon, fried egg and avocado.) Their hours are from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Sunday, and from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

7. Pbody’s: Pbody’s is located inside the Clarksville Country Club at 334 Fairway Drive, but you don’t have to be a club member to enjoy monster burgers like the one pictured above – they are also open to the general public. Featured burgers include the Best of Both Worlds (with pulled pork, crispy onion and BBQ sauce) and Buford T’s Diablo (1 pound of hamburger topped with bacon, ghost pepper cheese and 5150 sauce). Their hours are from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Tuesday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday.

8. Wicked Good Sandwiches: This restaurant at 605 Cumberland Drive lives up to its name. They’ve become a regular spot for Austin Peay students, with some of their menu items after the area. Try the Southwest Burger (with bacon, cheddar-jack, jalapenos and southwest sauce, served between crispy tortillas), or the College Street with Thousand Island dressing.
