“Good food. Good experience.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Saw this place on the Travel Channel and had to give it a try. The burgers were great, but they are just burgers. Service was good. It was a neat place. Cetainly worth the trip. The place has the potential for a great dinner out, especially with the right group. Burgers are about $10 and up. Beer is $5 or $6. Cool place.

“Smokey!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Too smokey for an enjoyable meal. I cannot stand the smell. I will never return unless they update the ventilation.

“Unique”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

Excellent choice if you have never been. Not only is vortex for the experience, it has quality. I grabbed just the simple vortex burger and enjoyed every bite. If you're here for a burger, please don't ruin it by getting medium or plus, get the damn thing medium rare, and a beer! Read the menu and follow the obnoxious but hilarious rules and enjoy!

“Politically incorrect burgers and beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

One of the best places to eat hamburgers and drink beer. Excellent atmosphere and service, fun and delicious.

Weird decorations with motorcycles, sculls and many other rare things. I recommend the draf beers and the "bacon cheeseburger". If you are hard to fill, try the "double by pass" (I passed on that one).

“Overrated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Yeah, the burgers are great, but the staff and the menu need to get over themselves. We know having an attitude is part of the whole schtick, but its overdone and obnoxious.
