The Vortex has the most unbelievable burgers in Atlanta...... You can choose from a large array of toppings. They have huge burgers and if you can eat a whole one my hat is off to you. Their fries are excellent, everything they serve is delicious!!!! They have great selection of beer even though I am not a beer drinker. I... More

Walked down here for dinner with the work crowd. They card everyone at the door - you can see why once you get in :) This is a great place - part bar, part restaurant. The menu is great - they tell you right off the bat the customer is not always right! No real need to worry about it... More

The burgers at the vortex are good as well as the drinks! The potato salad as a side option is really good. The burgers were cooked just as we ordered them and they are topped well with condiments at the table for you to add. The service was alright. The waitress wasn't particularly friendly, but she did check in on... More

They have the best burger ever! Sweet potato fries aren't bad, either. Every type of beer you can imagine.

This place is a bar first, and then a restaurant, and then a club (in the back.) I was with friends at a concert in Atlanta on a Sunday evening and we looked on Tripadvisor.com to find a restaurant close to our concert Venue. We were close to The Vortex on Peachtree Street, and the reviews looked good except for... More

After having an early dinner at a very upscale restaurant, and attending a local show at the Fox, we went back to our room at The Georgian, had a cocktail and decided we were STARVING. So we set out to find a late night hangout to FEED US BURGERS. We found The Vortex and the best late night menu in... More

Loved the food, loved the environment, loved the service. Burger was as good as it gets with a twist. Great place that is definitely a change from the normal burger joint. Can't wait to go back next time I'm in town. Just say no to chains!!
