I appreciate a restaurant that focuses on one thing and does that one thing really well.
In places like these, you don’t have to guess what that thing is. It’s often right in the name.
This is the case with Graze Burgers in Sevierville, Tenn.
And the name behind Graze Burgers is undoubtedly inspired by its grass-fed beef burgers. These quality beef patties have no added hormones, no steroids, no artificial ingredients and no antibiotics.
And if it’s anything Graze Burgers wants you to know, it’s that quality is on the menu.
It’s definitely where you should go if you’re looking for one of the best burgers in the Smoky Mountains.
Graze Burgers in Sevierville, TN menu items
Graze has a good selection of menu items, and frankly, they all look delicious.
For starters, they have the usual selections like house fried pickles, queso dip and crispy mushrooms.
The Nachos feature grass-fed beef chili, queso, shredded cheddar, roasted jalapenos, pico de gallo and sour cream.
But if you want to try something less generic, get the Green Tomato and Pimento, which are crispy local green tomatoes with house pimento cheese and bacon jam.
The Pig Wings, crispy double thick pork belly, is another highly-rated appetizer.
Starters range from about $7-13.
Of course, the stars of the menu are the burgers.
They have just about any kind of organic grass-fed beef burger you can imagine.
The Bourbon Bleu has cajun spices, house bacon, aged bleu cheese fondue, bourbon caramelized onions and sauteed mushrooms.
The Tennessee has bacon jam, bourbon BBQ, smoked gouda, beer battered onion rings, house slaw, tomatoes and pickles.
If you have a vegetarian in the group, that’s no problem, either.
The Hippie is a veggie burger with black beans, corn, feta cheese, roasted peppers, bourbon caramelized onions, sauteed mushrooms, local greens, tomatoes, house pickles and pesto mayo.
The Chili Chili Bang Bang has beef chili, aged cheddar, roasted peppers, southern slaw, bean and corn salsa.
It’s hard to know which one to start with, so I asked my server for her recommendation. She recommended the Local Farmer, which has aged cheddar, house bacon, fried egg, local greens, onions, tomatoes, house pickles and Graze sauce.
Burgers are served with hand-cut fries or battered onion rings. You can even get your sides half and half if you want both.
You can also upgrade to a premium side. We tried the Balsalmic Belly Brussels and the Six Mac.
Burgers range in price from about $13-19. They are served on a locally sourced brioche bun with fresh greens. Gluten-free options are also available for an additional charge.
What else does Graze Burgers have?
Although burgers are the stars of the show, the restaurant also features an array of big hot dogs, or Big Dawgs.
Keeping with the theme, these aren’t your average hot dogs. They are char-grilled beef with, again, no hormones, steroids or antibiotics.
The hot dogs, erm, Dawgs, range in price from $12-13. The Trailer Park, one of the most popular items, is made with beef chili, aged cheddar, house pickles, house bacon, bourbon, caramelized onions and stone ground mustard.
If you visit Graze Burgers more than once, you have my blessing to order the hot dog instead of the burger.
If there’s any room in your belly, you can wash it down with one of their delicious Root Beer Floats, which has vanilla ice cream and Abita root beer. They also have a selection of shakes that sound delicious, including the Nutella Crunch shake and the Bananas Foster shake.
For dessert, you can choose between a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup pie or a Chocolate Mouse pie.
Is Graze Burgers worth it?
Honestly, I love burgers. Burgers are great, and even when they’re bad, somehow, they’re still good.
So is a Graze Burger a great burger? I’d say it is. Probably the best burger I’ve had in a while.
You have a wide selection of craft, quality, premium burgers that you can feel good about eating.
My burger was juicy and flavorful and so large that I couldn’t even finish it.
It’s a lot of quality food for a good price.
I also experienced friendly staff, and in a world of current staffing shortages, that can be tricky to find. We also visited when the restaurant first opened during lunch, which is usually a bit less crowded.
I didn’t absolutely love the Six Mac macaroni and cheese. It came recommended, and while I’m sure the right person would love it, I prefer my mac and cheese a little more simple.
However, the burger was top notch and I will certainly be back to try some of the other craft menu items.

Graze Burgers is one of the main restaurants in Sevierville, which has grown quite a bit over the last few years. I think it’s one of the best lunch spots in the area, at least for now.
But it will soon have a few neighbors, and I have to admit that I’m quite looking forward to trying Pinchy’s Lobster.
If you’re in the mood for a high-end dinner, The Appalachian nearby is one of the top eateries in all of Sevierville. It is an upscale selection, but is worth the price.
