Crazy atmosphere and crazy good food. Skip breakfast, skip lunch, and roll in here around 3ish. This all works best if you have over enjoyed Atlanta's nightlife the evening before! Come in, order what they say, chow until you can chow no more. Pay cheap, tip big, nap it out, and hit the city again....

Came here for a burger. Brilliant decision as we had an excellent meal. Love the attitude of the place with all its rules. We found this quirky rather than off putting. My colleague had the chilli, which really isn't for pussys. I had the zombie apocalypse burger which i thought was delicious. I just wish I had the fries and... More

Went here for dinner/drinks after a long day. The bar was packed with a mix of much older and much younger patrons. It is 18+ which can be a negative, although it was not when we were there. The food was just average. I am pescatarian though and it is primarily a burger place. This is also the first bar... More

Burger lovers must eat here. If you don't love it, I pity you for your lack of taste buds. I always enjoy the environment and the drink menu provides interesting mixtures for you to enjoy with your meal.

My wife and I visited the Vortex with another couple. The burgers were very good and they serve tater tots which is awesome. Had to wait for about 20 mins for a table on a Wednesday night. Good atmosphere but for adults only. Smoking is allowed and thus by law no kids. Service was little slow but friendly. Would go... More

We drove up for a 3 day conference and didn't really have much time to spare. On the first night we decided to head here for dinner and it was delicious!!! Do not count on staying on your diet here, cool/fun atmosphere. Absolutely no minors allowed and for good reason, there's a penis statue at the entrance if you need... More

I had been wanting to go here forever and it did not disappoint. Very cool atmosphere. Lots of neat things on the walls to look. Food was phenomenal! Appetizer wise we ordered french fries with gravy on them which blew my taste buds away! I ordered the Meat Packer Melt for my meal. A cheeseburger topped with turkey ham and... More

The vortex is always fun, but the staff has a bad attitude. (The menu states that customers should not whine or complain, which I thought was a joke). We could not be seated until all 7 of us arrived even though there were plenty of tables. When I questioned this "policy" I got attitude from the staff. Lots of bar... More
