Went there for drinks with friends on a Monday evening. They have interesting and well-made cocktails but the serving staff was just rude!

The server was good and came quickly to take our order, the food followed very quickly (within 10 mins) and we had a bucket o' skulls (the local beer - laughing skull... More

You think I am joking about the Cardiologist dont you? I'm not. The burgers there have catchy names like the "Heart Attack"..the "Double Bypass"...yes, really! The food tastes great, especially if you can subdue the guilt. Lots of meat, cheese , carbs, cholesterol.... just awesome. You can nearly hear the arteries closing..and you dont care! The interior is a touch... More

Great place for a burger and drinks with friends in the Little Five Points area. There is always something to do there and the food is very good. Some of the best burgers in Atlanta area.

Awesome burger alternatives in a pretty unique place. Service was pretty good and the beer selection as well. Bear in mind it is NOT SMOKE FREE! Having said that most customers were pretty decent and went outside to smoke. Not expensive at all.

Don't be confused... go to The Vortex in Little 5 Points and not in mid town. This place is one of the best burger joints I have ever been to. The food is great.

I picked vortex after all the great reviews, and it lived up to the expectations! I got the original burger and my husband got the blue shroom. We had to wait about 20 minutes for a table around lunchtime. We loved everything!! Tater tots were extra crispy
