Sean Brock’s First Fast Food Joint Is Now Serving Burgers and Biscuits To-Go

Sean Brock has quietly snuck up with carry-out and curbside menu offerings from his new fast food playground Joyland, according to social media posts.

With proper safety measures of course in place, Joyland is now serving a pared down menu of burgers (including Impossible burger), sausage biscuit, fried chicken biscuit, chicken on a stick, plus fries and shakes — all designed just for carryout. Check out Joyland’s Instagram to see the full menu (also embedded below)

They’re currently only taking orders by phone, at 615-922-4934, and encourage callers to keep trying if they receive a busy signal.

Located in the former Stay Golden space on Woodland Street in East Nashville, Brock says Joyland was born from James Beard award-winning chef’s innate curiosity, love for Southern ingredients, and fascination with the attention to cleanliness and detail seen in Japanese convenience stores.

It’s an unprecedented time in the restaurant industry, with an unknown future due to current COVID-19 mandated dine-in closures. The carryout-friendly restaurant was just days away from opening, sandwiched between the East Nashville tornado and current state of affairs. Brock has started donating all proceeds from his newly offered online cooking classes and offers Joyland merch and gift card sales, plus a Venmo (@TeamsAudrey-Joyland), all to keep his current staffs at Joyland and Audrey employed.
