AHT: Atlanta Todd Brock 5 comments

The Hank is one of those burgers you can't put down, for two reasons. One, you know you'll never get a decent handle on it again if you try to reposition it. Two, it's that outrageously spectacular. More

The 'Influential' Burger (That Influences You to Order Chili Dogs Instead) at The Varsity in Atlanta

AHT: Atlanta Todd Brock 32 comments

Two chalky-brown industrial patties wedged between a flattened bun that hadn't even been fully split, with cheese that's not really melting so much as drooping with sadness at being exiled to this travesty of burgerdom. How is this "influential"? More

Expand Your Vocabulary and Get a Superb Burger at Ink & Elm in Atlanta

AHT: Atlanta Todd Brock 15 comments

Ink & Elm is pretty up front about wanting to be both "casual" and "comfort-driven," yet "refined" and a "destination." That can be a tough twofer to pull off under one roof. So it's not surprising that Ink & Elm's signature burger has a little Jekyll-and-Hyde thing going on, too. More

AHT: Atlanta Todd Brock 8 comments

'50s-Style Fast Food Burgers Still Going Strong at Zesto in Atlanta

AHT: Atlanta Todd Brock 4 comments

Unless you're a diehard Big Mac fanatic, Zesto's Big Mac-like Chubby Decker would probably win a blind taste-test because it was cooked for you instead of just assembled. Otherwise, the food doesn't always live up to the legend; most who've grown up with Zesto give it something of a pass based on sheer nostalgia. More

Atlanta: Heavenly Burgers from a Jewish Deli at The General Muir

AHT: Atlanta Todd Brock 12 comments

You could argue that an exceptional burger was programmed into The General Muir's DNA from the very beginning. Both burgers here are so good that you'll find yourself scrabbling after all the bits and pieces of shrapnel. Just remember to add the poutine. More

Atlanta: Brunch Burgers Worth Waking Up For at Buttermilk Kitchen

AHT: Atlanta Todd Brock 10 comments

I know. It's a burger on a waffle. Surprisingly simple in its construction. But Dad's Waffle is superb in its execution. I didn't expect to be blown away by burgers at a brunch place, but Buttermilk Kitchen's did just that. More

AHT: Atlanta Todd Brock 3 comments

AHT: Atlanta Todd Brock 7 comments
