Good Burger

Went here during our weekend stay on a Saturday Night. It was packed! We had great service and the burgers were really good. You can't go wrong with a good burger. It was reasonably priced as well. We tried a few cocktails that were on their endless list of drinks. The drinks were very tasty... read more

I've had some great food at The Vortex, especially some world class hamburgers. The menu at this place is like the writer's room of SNL - hilarious and totally irreverent. The wait staff are equally irreverent but very skilled. The place is loud and always crowded, but it's a real experience to go there. Parking is sometimes tough on the... More

I was pretty impressed with the burgers and food here. My expectations were tempered and this location is in an interesting area of town. This is a great neighborhood to people watch! The burgers at the Vortex were very good. They were prepared fresh to order and they were cooked exactly to the desired temperatures which is hard to find... More

The decor was eclectic and exciting. I was in town for a conference and went there twice. Once with my work buddies and another with new friends. Wait staff was friendly and in point. Food was awesome! I will be back Im sure.

This has to best one of the best restaurants/bars I have ever been to. The food was great, the staff was great, the atmosphere... you guessed it; GREAT!!! For newcomers, read the front and rear of the menu for a complete set of bar rules... You won't be disappointed.

Great food, particularly burgers and sandwiches and bar food. Great service and atmosphere. Not your typical experience, tattooed staff and edgy bar rock and roll atmosphere and decor. Smoking allowed. No one under 21. Not for everyone, but if you like places that are not mainstream and boring, you will enjoy.

My wife and I dined here prior to a comedy show. We loved the great food and the fast professional service. The hamburgers and very tasty and the appetizer menu is great. I also enjoyed the variety of beers they offer.

I was in ATL for a concert and decided I wanted to grab some grub before. I had been to the Vortex in little 5 points and loved it, so I decided to try the one in Midtown this time. The decor is generally the same as the L5P location..quirky with skeletons, random animal head mounts and sexy ladies on... More
