About This Spot
A Nashville-born burger and barbecue spot dedicated to simple, delicious food and warm Southern hospitality. The vision of restaurateur and founder Pat Martin, Hugh-Baby’s is a loving tribute to the small-town eateries Martin frequented in his childhood. The restaurant’s vibrant, modern design and all-are-welcome-here mindset draws inspiration from the old school barbecue and burger spots of days gone by. Nearly everything at Hugh-Baby’s is made from scratch and cooked to order, and the team takes great care in preparing a menu that speaks to founder Pat Martin’s mid-South roots–with burgers, Memphis-style barbecue, hot dogs, fries, and hand-spun shakes at its heart. The restaurant’s vibrant, modern design and all-are-welcome-here mindset come to life via a counter-service experience that draws inspiration from the old school barbecue and burger spots of days gone by. Hugh-Baby’s celebrated burgers feature a proprietary blend of premium beef that is ground fresh daily. The barbecue sandwiches follow time-honored traditions of Memphis-style barbecue, with the restaurant slow-smoking pork, turkey, and bologna onsite, every single day. Menu highlights include Hugh-Baby’s signature Burgers (Classic Single or Double, BBQ Burger, Shroom & Swiss Burger), BBQ Sandwiches (Pulled Pork, Smoked Bologna, Smoked Turkey Club), and Hot Dogs that throw back to the quintessential gas station dogs of Martin’s youth (Ball Park Dog, Slaw Dog, Chili Cheese Dog, and Pickwick Dog). Other standouts include a Fried Chicken Sandwich, a Veggie Burger with a loyal following, crispy golden French Fries, and hand-spun, scratch-made Milkshakes featuring chocolate, strawberry, and seasonal fruit flavors. Hugh-Baby’s is open every day from 11 AM to 9 PM for dine-in, drive-thru, take home, and delivery.
