After having an early dinner at a very upscale restaurant, and attending a local show at the Fox, we went back to our room at The Georgian, had a cocktail and decided we were STARVING. So we set out to find a late night hangout to FEED US BURGERS. We found The Vortex and the best late night menu in Atlanta. If you haven't had the pleasure of The Vortex after midnight...GO. It should be on everyone's ATL bucket list!

The atmosphere here is what keeps people coming back. Very rock and roll/bad ass. I find the food to be heavy and the burgers are OK. I remember having their Cajun burger and hating it because they over did the Cajun dressing on it.

Best Burgers in Atlanta

Been a going to The Vortex since I was 18. You HAVE to try this place!

Have tried most of the menu at least once, and most everything is good and a safe bet. The appetizers are good (the cheese dip will make your mouth bless you). If you get a burger you should definitely order it with tots. I would recommend the Double Coronary Bypass just to at least say you have done it once, but I personally prefer the Yokohama Mama and the Tasmanian Devil Burgers. Attractive staff, good service, chill atmosphere, and great food will keep you returning for more.

I drive 45mins just to go to this place, and have taken many a date here with success. This location is 10x better than the other.

I can feel my Arteries clogging just think of it's greatness

This iconic burger joint in the heart of little 5 is a mecca for the burger loving folks around the Atlanta area. Best burger in atlanta hands down is the Double bypass burger with a side of tots. Every gooey bite of this debaucherous will send you into a food induced coma. They have a great beer selection and the Atmosphere is great as is the music selection. Trust me go eat drink and be merry.

crappy service

Although I've been to this Vortex a few times, and in the past have had good service with better-than-average bar food, I had to give only one star due to the recent bad experience I had there.

Two nights ago, I and 5 of my friends attempted to dine in at this establishment. It was around midnight. The hostess led us outside and up a flight of stairs to a small upstairs dining room. The place was literally EMPTY. The people in my party were the only diners there. She led us all the way to the back of the room to one of the larger tables. However, the table was pushed back close to the far wall. So that my friends could easily access the other half of the table (so they could pull out their chairs, comfortably remove their coats, etc.), we moved the table about 3 feet away from the wall. No big deal, right?

The server, a 30-something black dude with braids pulled back, walked out and immediately said, with an extremely disgusted look on his face, ""Why did you move the table?"" We were all taken aback by his attitude, as we tried to stammer out the fact that we couldn't easily access the 3 chairs on the one side of the table. He rolled his eyes and walked away.

Needless to say, we had suddenly lost our appetites. We walked out. We went to Gladys Knight's Chicken 'n Waffles around the corner and had a great experience with a nice, smiling staff.

With the plethora of dining choices in Atlanta, I find it hard to believe that the Vortex can afford to provide this type of service. Yes, you have good burgers, but if you have jerks delivering them to the tables, then I'd rather go hungry!

Best Burgers EVER!!

Just moving to GA I was excited to finally get the chance to visit the famous Vortex! I was a little upset that my 14 year old son wasn't able to join me since he would have LOVED the awesome enviroment. The place was packed but there wasn't a wait to be seated. They do need expand the building to give more seating, hopefully one day though. Our waitress wasn't very friendly and hardly made an effort to serve my table. My husband ordered the hell burger (I think that's what it was called) and loved it! I was hoping to be brave enough to try the Elvis burger but right before being rushed to order I chickened out and went with the cardic one - which was fantastic! Love the decor of the resturant and the shops around it make it even better. I vow to challenge my comfort zone one day and conquer the mighty Elvis...hopefully next time we'll get a waitress that meets the awesomeness of the food.
