Foursquare Tips

  • I get brussel sprouts every time. Honey sriracha fries after the best. All ingredients are local! #ibelieveinatlanta
  • Get the okanomiayki fries and the buttermilk biscuit pie!
  • I had the special of the day my wife had "the Hank". They were amazing. Homemade pork rinds on the side was great too! Highly recommended.
  • The Hank is their signature burger (a take on the Big Mac), but I prefer the more complex Nasty Nate or Warden
  • Amazing Brussels sprouts and heirloom tomato side!
  • The Hank was need to make it a double.Nasty Nate is great,but a little too flavorful to mix with Okonomiyaki fries,which were good but quite salty/fishy.The buns are buttery and delicious!
  • Rated as one of Eater's Top Burgers Nationwide
  • One of the best burgers in Atlanta. Try the Nasty Nate. Don't skip the fries, either--the honey sriracha fries were excellent.
  • Tucked between Dark Horse Tavern and a parking lot on, Illegal Food appears under an illuminated sign with its handcuffs logo. Try their pork terrine with the When The Smoke Clears tequila cocktail.
  • Burgers...
  • Chef Steven Lingenfelter gets a side of Brasstown Beef each week, which is fodder for his burgers & weekly specials. There's a certain arrogance to the restaurant that announces "Yeah it's that good"
  • The worst service in Atlanta... Drinks took forever; sides came out 15 minutes before entrees; one party didn't get their food until everyone was done...
  • Horrible service-never was served and sat there for over an hour. Had to walk out bc they couldn't ballpark when my food would be ready. Something needs to change
