This past weekend we continued our Atlanta burger journey at the Vortex in Little Five Points. The Vortex touts itself as a "biker-burger bar" that takes a hard-line with customers (see "rules" on the website) and considers itself an "idiot-free" zone. They also make you wait at least an hour if not more for a burger, which may be part of the hype. Their burgers are known for their hugeness and over-the-top aspects. The menu includes the "Coronary Bypass Burger" which consists of a 1/2 lb patty, a fried egg, 3 slices of American cheese, 4 slices of bacon, and plenty of mayo. Thankfully, no one ordered that (though some members of our party were tempted).
I think our friend Adam ordered the mushroom swiss with bacon, with a side of potato salad that he definitely regretted ordering.
All in all, the sides were a waste of stomach space but the burgers went down easy.
Leaving, we may have felt like this...
... in the way one normally feels after consuming insane quantities of meat.
Farm Burger is still champion in our minds, but the Vortex was a fun visit.
