“A place everyone has heard of and yes u should go.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

This place has the best atmosphere in midtown. The burgers are wonderful and the service is very good. Also catch a comedy show after dinner. This place is 18+ al the time and they allow smoking but u can hardly tell.

“Great place to visit when coming to ATL!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

Food was great, good atmosphere, and excellent service! First time in Atlanta and had to stop in and check it out. One of the best burgers I have had in a very long time. Well worth the average of $10 a burger. Food was out minutes after being ordered. Going to order a Ruben to go for a late night snack.

“Good burger but not the best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

We have read the many reviews for The Vortex but had not made it there on previous trips to Atlanta. So, we made a special effort to give it a try on our latest visit.
We ate here for lunch on Sunday before a Falcons game. The theme of the restaurant is interesting. Kind of a Goth thing but not over the top though the music had my head banging.
The burgers were very good. The size of the burger was adequate. I asked for it to be cooked medium and it was a bit overlooked. If it would have been a bit juicer, it might have been better.
The service was quick and attentive.
Prices were average.
We are glad we tried it but it's not a " must return"

“Definitely worth the trip!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

We used Tripadvisor to find the best burger joint in town and Vortex popped up so we decided to give it a shot...omg these are the BEST burgers we have ever had! Words cannot describe just how tasty and delicious these burgers are...that explains why it was featured on Man vs. Food. If you are want to have the best burger in your life and happen to be in Atlanta, do not hesitate to visit Vortex. Lines tend to be long and we had to wait for 30 mins before we were seated but the quality of the food definitely makes up for it!!!
