“Cool people , good food .”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013 via mobile

I love dining in places that I've seen on tv .. Food network and travel channel especially so I HAD to try the Vortex . Off the bat , it gives off a cool rocker vibe on the inside with interesting pictures of goth women on the walls and an eclectic staff . My only regret is that I wish I wasn't so safe with my order ! I will definitely go back and when I do , I'm trying something crazy ! Overall the food and value were good and I would recommend it .

“Perpare yourself for the Triple Coronary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Humongous and tasty - between grilled cheese sandwiches/' C'mon, how can you go wrong?

Had the pleasure of stopping in during a visit to Hotlanta, to watch GT flounder yet again (sorry GT FB Fans) a huge lead to my Hurricanes last year.

I was fortunate to meet the owners while there. This place takes you back - with all of the eclectic design, art, zebra, etc... The staff was great, and the food was dynamite! Great place to meet locals, grab some great grub and enjoy the show. Will definitely be back.

“A Burger for Every Taste”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Went to Vortex Bar & Grill in Midtown (S/O saw it on Man vs. Food). I had the white bean chicken chilli (surprising good), bacon cheeseburger (good) and onion rings (love beer-battered rings). S/O had the Dixie fries (tasty and generous), Coronary Bypass burger (ridiculous...lol). The burger menu is pretty extensive. Something for every taste, even veggie. Smokers are welcome there, but thank goodness none there when we were. Children are not welcome. Must be 18 and older all of the time. They serve just about every kind of liquor made and beer made. No house or specialty cocktails. So you will have to know what you what. Would definitely go back again.

“"Get sucked in!" - the burgers are bomb!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

The "Rebel Outlaw" the perfect blend of pulled pork, spicy outlaw sauce, cheddar cheese and bacon on top of a perfect burger! Gotta make it a regular stop!

“Love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

This is one of the best restaurants I've been to in Atlanta. We always go back every time we visit. The burgers are great and I also really appreciate that they have veggie burgers for us vegetarians!
