“the best burger in Atlanta”

Just in case you didn’t know, The Vortex has been honored with “Best Burger” awards by a multitude of local and national publications from the day it opened. Additional accolades followed over the years, including awards for “Best Beer Selection,” “Best Neighborhood Bar,” “Best Overall Liquor Selection in Atlanta,” “Best Bar Food,” “Best Veggie Burger,”  and “One of the Top 50 Restaurants in Atlanta.” As their reputation continued to grow, the partners began to get requests to be featured on television programs. The Vortex has appeared on Man vs. Food, and many other “Best Restaurant” themed TV shows. All of this recognition was certainly nice, but the siblings never let it go to their heads. As long as their loyal customers were happy, they were happy. It’s been a long time since the siblings quietly opened their tiny corner bar to the public. Since that day, the two existing Vortex locations have gone on to become Atlanta institutions, each with a diverse, friendly staff and an exceptionally loyal clientele. The Vortex’s award-winning food, extensive selection of booze and lively, non-conformist atmosphere keep loyal patrons coming back for more. The authentic, anti-corporate, “No-Bull” attitude of this little family business seems to be what a lot of folks are looking for.

Good food but nothing special. I’m not sure I’d feature it as must-see in Atlanta. Lots of other places with better atmosphere.
