Voted 2013 & 2012 Best Burger in Atlanta by AJC readers! 2013 World Food Championships Competitor! Welcome to KirbyG's,(R) a cook-to-order family owned diner that began in 2008. We've trademarked a new name since then but we still strive to make your experience enjoyable. KirbyG's(R) is our tribute to the 1950s! So, take the Pit Crew challenge and stroll down memory lane.

Patrons are treated to handpattied burgers such as Ike's "I Like Cheese" Burger, Ole Blue Eyes and The Duke. And, if a hamburger isn't for you, diners will find mouth-watering delectables such Desi's Fried Dill Pickles, Rock-a-Billy's Grilled Chicken, and the Whiz Kids Philly Cheesesteak.

Completely disappointed with our food, service and the music on this Friday night. First, our 1/3 pound hamburgers were a shock when we saw them....small, dry and not even close to any picture on this site. $7.25 just for the hamburger, garden and a pickle? (fries were extra). We ate our dinner, and was still hungry.....for $23.00. Sat in the... More

I came here unexpected, I was in the area to get my wife jewelry repair and asked for any restaurant around the area and they brought up KirbyG's. I am thankful that they did, the place has a retro look to it, the waiters were great and really respectful and it plays all of the old school jams from the... More

Waitress gave order to another table. Hamburger was okay. Didn't refill drinks. I would try this place once more for a second chance

We enjoy going to Kirby G's for a great burger and delicious sides. Be sure to try the fried green beans!

KirbyG's is some of the best burger eatin' south of Atlanta. I've yet to have a bad dish to date. I do prefer weeknight visits (or weekends before live music starts). This can rule out a Friday night visit for me due to the noise when the music starts. It's not bad music, but the building layout can put you... More

KirbyG's in McDonough, GA is a really neat restaurant. They play oldie's music and the dining room is decorated with photos of the Rat Pack, John Wayne, Elvis and many others. It's interesting. The food is really, really good. I usually build my own burger and I can get it to 125 degrees, which most places won't do. They have... More

Very basic, but pretty good. Locals only type place, with comfort food and a bar. Off the tourist track, so much easier to get into. Burgers are good, wings basic. But a decent place to get a decent meal.

Looks like the place needs a good scrub down. The bread had absorbed some sort of old lady perfume taste. Our food was delivered by a woman talking on the telephone. No one asked if we needed anything. (Like ketchup or refills)

We were lucky and parked right out front. The curb there can be pretty intimidating. I'm not sure I will go back. I loved the 50's atmosphere, but the food wasn't impressive. I got a double meat burger with swiss, and carmelized onions and a side of deep fried green beans. The beans were a little over cooked and tasteless.... More
