I had read a little about this place and thought it sounded interesting. Waitress was polite but seemed to take a long time to get a refill of soda or when paying the bill. Food was good, ordered the blue shrooms and medium rare with tater tots. Burger was large, tasty but hamburger was cool and raw in the middle.... More

After a day at the zoo I decided to grab a burger, yet this is not your "ordinary" burger. I had the double decker melt with a side of zucchini and ranch dressing. I must say everything was delish and the portions are equal to the amount of money you spend. If you are ever in the area I recommend... More

You'd be hard pressed to find a place that offers a more extensive combination of burgers and beers on their menu. You could go back to the Vortex daily for several weeks and never run out of new combinations to try.

I really fell in love for the no-nonsense vibe at this restaurant. The people working there are very upfront, yet respectful. Ain't no need for unecessary bullcrap. The food was authentic, warm and delicious. I got to discover some awesome beers during my visit there but nothing prepared me for their tater tots...Absolutely delicious! Out of this world! Would (almost)... More

I had their burger with the blue cheese spread, mushrooms and bacon and it was amazing. Cole slaw on the side was a little too creamy for my taste. Server was really friendly and helpful. A great choice in midtown.

Dark and filled with the trendy and the used-to-be trendy. A great place to go when theres an event, or something to gossip about. The burgers are big and tasty with several potato salad options.

The Hot Southern Mess sandwich was really, really good. The Guacamole Burger was so tasty and perfectly cooked, not to mention the bevy of sensibly priced beverages! There's definetely a certain way about this place - a "no nonsense, straight to the nuts and bolts of operations so we can move on to delicious foods and drinks" way. It reminded... More

Love their hamburgers and tater tots. Sad to learn that bison and turkey burgers are no longer an option. Still enjoyed my sirlon burger with extra tots!
