Illegal Food Is Making One of Atlanta's Best Burgers Out of a Tiny Bar Kitchen

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

Creative Double Burgers and (Mostly) Solid Sides at Stax Burger Bar in Atlanta

AHT: Atlanta Todd Brock 5 comments

I enjoyed the food at Stax Burger Bar very much, but there's a residual odor that permeates this restaurant to the point that I can't just ignore it. My next visit will be in warmer weather so my nose can seek refuge on the sizable outdoor patio. More

Where There's Smoke, There's Lots of Good Stuff at Stillhouse in Atlanta

AHT: Atlanta Todd Brock 8 comments

While a quick glance may have you thinking that Stillhouse is a flash-in-the-pan gimmick destined to shut down once the next big thing comes along, there's actually quite a lot to like, for burger lovers and hooch heads alike. More

Erin Jackson 3 comments

The burgers at this hip neighborhood spot in Savannah show promise, but the pretzel bun has got to go. More

Keeping it Simple at Green Truck Pub in Savannah, GA

Erin Jackson 1 comment

This burger spot beloved by locals has a well-earned reputation for greatness (and is supremely affordable, too). More

'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

A Killer Burger (with a Kooky Codename) at One Eared Stag in Atlanta

AHT: Atlanta Todd Brock 9 comments

Order the Meatstick and you'll get a pretty excellent hidden gem of a burger that, while not perfect, certainly has the foundation to be included in any conversation about this city's great burgers. More

Burgers (& More) Just Off the Beaten Path at Hop Alley Brew Pub in Alpharetta, GA

AHT: Atlanta Todd Brock 6 comments

Beerhounds can go nerd out over ABVs and IBUs all day long, but this little gem of a brewpub I hadn't even heard of is cranking out some excellent burgers that are among the best I've found recently. More

Chain Reaction: Texas Roadhouse

AHT: Atlanta Todd Brock 20 comments

A glass case of hand-cut steaks greeting you at the door, a tableside bucket of peanuts in the shell, the occasional yee-haw rising up from a far corner of the restaurant: what's not to love about Texas Roadhouse? Well, as it turns out, the burgers. More

Atlanta: Enjoy Some Bark with Your Bite at Lucky's Burger & Brew

AHT: Atlanta Todd Brock 4 comments

Lucky's didn't win any Best of Breed awards in my burger book, but they do some solid pub grub in a canine-friendly atmosphere that's fun for two- and four-legged friends alike. More

Chain Reaction: Waffle House

AHT: Atlanta Todd Brock 32 comments

You may not consider Waffle House a burger place, but I submit that theirs is actually better and a much better bargain than what the clown, the king, and the pigtailed girl are handing out. Hot, steamy, melty, with real grease dripping off of it—this is fast food without everything that makes fast-food cringeworthy. 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

Chain Reaction: Wild Wing Cafe

AHT: Atlanta Todd Brock 9 comments

The our-burgers-are-so-extreme-that-we-have-to-serve-them-with-a-steak-knife-plunged-through-the-center schtick is way overdone, but on my next visit to Wild Wing Cafe, there's a very good chance I'll do another burger. More

Atlanta: Seven Lamps, One 'Secret' Burger

AHT: Atlanta Todd Brock 3 comments

The hip Buckhead hotspot has a "secret" burger on the menu that's worth looking into, but judging by how many I saw walk out of the kitchen during my recent lunch visit, the 50/50 Burger may not technically qualify as a secret at all. More

Atlanta: A Mixed Bag of Burgers and Sliders at The Shed at Glenwood

AHT: Atlanta Todd Brock 7 comments

Hits include tasty Angus beef cooked beautifully, superb buns, and a few of the more conventional $3 slider varieties. But there are misses, too: limp fries, chewy onion rings, and some of the experimental snack-sizers...but that may depend on your opinion of beef tongue. More

AHT: Atlanta Todd Brock 13 comments
