We make a stop to The Vortex every time we're in ATL. They have very cool and unique burger flavors and it is always hard to choose which one to get, but we're never disappointed with what we choose. Their fries and tots are good and drinks are great and not too pricey. Make a stop here!

We stopped in because of location and it was recommended by the front desk clerk at our hotel. It was definitely a great experience. There were a lot of locals visiting the place which to me is a good indication of the establishment. Our waitress was great and the drinks were good. We didn't eat because of the time of... More

Stopped in here on a weekend away with my wife. We wanted to go someplace different and many friends suggested The Vortex. We were seated immediately and got to get a good view of the place. This is the dive bar of dive bars, and I loved it!! The draft beers are huge and a great price. Definitely go for... More

We stopped here for a quick bite during our road trip. The location was listed on Man VS Food so we had to try it. The inside is decorated with a bunch of interesting items that makes you instantly feel relaxed and laid back. Being from Chicago, we were taken back by the smoking in a restaurant but quickly got...

The burgers here are awesome, so much choice and all sound amazing. We tried a good few between us over a few nights. The beer choice is also pretty good. We had a few of the festive cocktail drinks which were good as well. It's a pretty fun place with lots of crazy stuff over the walls and a good... More

Sorry to offend any smokers, but for those that don't this was a negative to me, not sure what laws are in Atlanta but most places I travel have seemed to stop smoking in eating establishments. Aside from that, the food was great, we of course did burgers and also enjoyed a couple nice cold beers. Everything was fresh and... More

Great place - busy busy busy - wait was about 15 minutes at noon on a Saturday - fun store front and interior - awesome burgers with wonderfully creative names! The wait staff was harried but efficient.

I've been here many times and have not been disappointed. The burgers are very good and there is a flavor for everyone. Love the tater tots also. Service is good--not overly attentive, but just right.
