Over rated more of a place for college age

On thinking I liked was you had to be 21 or older to enter. Long Line to get in. This place is more about the beer than then food. Food was okay not great my bun for the hamburger fell apart on the first bite.

To the tater tots! Had the burger with the egg. Very good. If you're used to no smoking you might want to stay away. Great place in midtown to eat alone.

And the parking wasn't even that bad. Right across the street. 5 bucks. I just couldn't think of anything I didn't like about this place. A wonderful selection of beer(import and domestic). Amazing cheese fries appetizer(can't remember the name) and Mac and cheese wraps..yes Mac and cheese wraps. Bomb. Burgers were amazing. Service was amazing.

I have been here multiple times with my frinds, and we always have a good time. Food is great and the staffs are friendly. My favorite is definitely the blue cheese burger. I have also tried the Elvis Burger and it is amazing as well. Who would have thought to put peanut butter and grilled banana in a burger!

Didn't even have to ask for a to-go cup for our soft drinks! Service was fast, food was delicious and the atmosphere was great. I will warn anyone considering the Rebel Outlaw burger that they mean SPICY when they say spicy on the teriyaki sauce. Also...not for families as no one under 21 is admitted.

We were in Atlanta for business & we had heard about The Vortex. We got there pretty early so it wasn't that crowded yet.

This is one of our must go's when we go to ATL. The staff is fun with attitude. The beer selection is vast. And their food menu is monster. Ask for Amy to serve you, she was great and helped us find more trouble to get into. Really cool vibe and great swag you can buy to take back home.

I went here the other day with two friends. Our waiter was courteous and checked on us often, they had a great beer selection and the food was delicious! I got the mushroom burger with a side of plantains and they were both incredible. The hostesses weren't the nicest though. Never once smiled. Also I know that it is in... More
