Great Food, Great Service, ADULT Atmosphere!

This place has a fun menu with a good drink selection. The wait staff has always been top notch, fun and very interactive. The place does feature a very Adult atmosphere with scantily clad male and female servers, smoking, and a lot of alcohol. If thats what you're looking for you have come to the... read more

The food was very good. My friend had a burger and said it was one of the best she had had. I had the black bean burger and it was tasty with a little kick. They server tater tots instead of fries and the bar menu is extensive. It's noisy and the décor is something to see. Now if the... More

Loved the burger and the atmosphere...will definitely go back!! Everyone in our party got a different burger, and we all thought they were great. The service was just ho hum, but it was busy. I'm hoping that's the only reason why...

This is by far the best burger I have ever had. The menu in itself is very entertaining to read. The service has always been good and I have never had any issue with the food. It always comes out very quickly and very good. The tater tots are also the best I have ever had. Just remember that you... More

I was in Atlanta for one night and thought I would go somehwere other than my hotel. I arrived at around 5pm and the place was about half full. I was on my own so I went to the bar (after getting ID'd, which as a 32 year old I took as a great compliment). The staff talked me through... More

We were advised to eat at The Vortex and we are glad we did, The place is jammed - floor to ceiling with stuff. I ordered the Rebel Outlaw burger - a burger covered with pulled pork, cheddar cheese, bacon and a teriyaki sauce. It was tasty- filling, lots of amazing flavors mixed together. I had the onion rings as... More

The food is insanely good the service is on it and the atmosphere is loud and no nonsense. Love the FRIED ZUCCHINI SLICES I had the MICHAEL CRISTO and my fiance had the HOT SOUTHERN MESS they were great. My one huge drawback and the reason I won't return is that they still allow smoking!!! Couldn't believe it! But that... More

A friend first took me to this place in 2012 and now I make sure to stop and eat there anytime I am traveling near Atlanta. I have been at least a couple dozen times and have never once had food that was less than outstanding. The decor is weird and all the waitresses look like they have severe father... More
