Fun!

Highly recommend for a fun experience. Not only was our food good, but you have to to read the menu, All of the sayings and comments are worth the trip. i did not see anyone smoking , but once I caught a hint of smoke, which might cause some people some pause.

Unbelievable place, you need to see it yourself. Comfort food that is out of this world. Drinks are a huge attraction here. Service was great. Funky place, can't wait to go back.

I had the Holy Guacamole Burger. It was great! The guacamole was freshly prepared and paired well with the other toppings on the burger! 😃

The burgers at The Vortex are amazing! I can't recall the name of my burger but I substituted ground beef for turkey and it came with mushrooms, bleu cheese, and bacon! I wasn't expecting it to taste that great! It was probably the best burger I've had! The only down side would be the smoking that took place outside (I... More

It's best to read a little about the vortex so you know what to expect when you go. The food was great and the atmosphere was good. The Yokohama mama burger is great!

I've been to the vortex on numerous occasions, typically celebratory. Most recently, post Tough Mudder. I opted for the double bypass burger. You have to replace all those calories somehow. The burgers are outstanding.

We like to sit on the patio at the Peachtree Street location. The Vortex is a place that we love to take our friends when they're visiting Atlanta, but it's definitely an... More

This decor of this place is like a biker's version and of Friday's. I liked all the skeltys on motorbikes. The inverted P-51 was super cool too! We got the Dixie fries for an app, really liked the gravy and cheese. I had the zombie apocalypse which was served open-faced with eggs over easy. The eggs were more like over... More
