Atlanta has many Zagat rated restaurants and four-course menus, but sometimes a juicy burger is a craving that one cannot deny themselves. Here’s a list of Atlanta burger spots for when the craving hits.
Grindhouse Killer Burgers
A simple menu featuring a handful of “killer” burger styles ranging from Euro to Dixie, Grindhouse also allows diners to build their own beef, turkey, or veggie burger. Award-winning smokey brisket chili is a topping so divine that diners will want to order a cup on its own. My dining companion can almost always finish a burger in four bites, and is always left wanting more.
Holeman & Finch Public House
The list would not be complete without a mention of the Holeman & Finch burger. Harder to come by than other burgers on this list, diners must be in the right place at the right time (10:00pm exactly) to even think about getting their hands on one of the 24 burgers served each night. Even then it’s not guaranteed – as this off-the-menu burger can long be spoken for before the 10:00pm “burger time.” These double patty cheeseburgers are worth the wait and handcrafted to perfection.
The Vortex Bar & Grill
Perhaps one of the best known spots in Atlanta for indulgent burgers, the atmosphere at The Vortex alone is enough to draw diners in. Their signature burgers have artful names such as “Rebel Outlaw,” served covered in pulled pork and cheddar cheese; “Fat Elvis,” which The King himself would have crooned over, features peanut butter, bacon and fried bananas; and the “Triple Coronary Bypass,” a mega-burger that, well, you’ll want to save some room for. The Vortex also offers non-beef options and meal-worthy appetizers. Diners must be 18 and older to dine inside each of the two skull-adorned locales.
“Food You Can Feel Good About” is the motto which Yeah! Burger creates its menu options by. Diners can eat easy and enjoy a naturally-raised, locally-sourced burger free from heavy processing. Add all-natural and organic produce and dairy products to artisan buns locally made from Holeman & Finch Bread Company, and diners have a meal they can feel good about. Stop by the Virginia Highland or Howell Mill location.
