Burgers in Atlanta

Posted: 6/11/2014 8:18 AM

Burgers in Atlanta 


You 5 probably saw/heard the talk on the news the past couple of days about the top Burgers in Atlanta. I keep hearing about the ghetto burger at Ann's snack shack or whatever it is. I have never tried one but am considering it. Is it really as good as they make it out to be?

I wish I still had the photo of the Ghetto Burger that I had at Miss Ann's a couple of years ago to show you. I do have the t-shirt that is proof that I was there.

It was delicious....huge.....a heart attack on a bun!

But it is the total experience of going to Miss Ann's that makes it worth the visit.

Remember your first time to The Varsity, especially if you went as a kid? How you were mesmerized by the all that was transpiring even if you had no clue what was really going on?

Go to Miss Ann's & soak it in. Sit at the counter so you can watch her at the grill.

Just do not order anything special or she will scold you something fierce!!

Any list that has Five Guys on it is a joke.

The Vortex is definitely noteworthy.

Others deserving mention:

The burger at Holeman and Finch
The McDowell at Local Three

Very true.

I would rank Vu's tailgate "Garbage Burger" high on any list.  tongue

I first heard at least 2 years ago that Miss Ann was looking to sell the place and retire, but as far as I know, she's still running it.

The best I've had are Holeman & Finch, "The Duke" at King+Duke, Farm Burger, anything at Vortex, and Mix'd Up Truck Stop in Grant Park.

I don't think I've ever eaten anything else as hyped up as the H&F burger...that actually delivered.  It's incredible.

Anyone know if the ones at the Braves games are up to par with the restaurant?
You can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning.

Totally agree. The H&F burger is one of the few things I've had that lives up to the hype. That, and Antico pizza.

The ones at the Braves game are very good, but not on par with the restaurant.

The Vortex has some cool/unique burgers that are really good, but if you compare a basic cheeseburger or bacon cheeseburger from the Vortex to some of the other places, it's nowhere near the "best" conversation.  It's just not in the same class.

Re: Burgers in Atlanta 


How does one go about getting a H&F burger? Is there a good time to arrive? Will I know if I made the cut when I first sit down?

I've read and heard about the whole 24 burger thing. Would love one, but not sure of the logistics of the experience.

I have also never enjoyed a Ghetto Burger, but I reeeeaaaallly want one.  I've heard they live up to the hype. 

The cynic in me wanted the H&F burger to fall flat because of all its hype, but it really is good.  I think their burger is a testament to how delicious a very simple dish can be when made from high quality ingredients. 

The Vortex is my go-to for burgers.  The huge number of specialty burgers may turn off some, but don't be fooled by the shtick.  Their burgers are delicious and juicy.

I also really, really enjoy the bison burgers at Ted's, but I know you can find Ted's pretty much anywhere.

Just up the street from our houses is the Tucker Meat Market on Brockett where they grill great burgers. We love the ground sirloin/bacon burger where the bacon is mixed in with the beef. Also a delicious lamb burger.

That's where we get our meat for our backyard grilling including both of those flavors above.

I went to H&F for a late dinner on a weeknight. At 9 I arrived and the first thing the hostess said was that they had 4 burgers left if we wanted to get on the list for one. So yes, you'll know immediately.

By the time we finished our meal it was burger time. Not a bad dessert.

Re: Burgers in Atlanta 


Important secret to know about Holeman & Finch... the burgers are available at Sunday Brunch there.

I think they open at 1130.  When I went, I was in line by about 1045AM - 11AM.  They get people seated quickly and since many are there for the burger, you'll see them being made as you walk in.

That burger definitely delivered, I think, because they kind of taste like White Castle.  It was great.

I miss being a regular at The Vortex more than their burgers.  Their burgers are really good, but after moving to NYC, where we have a similar burger culture, I boldly stated I'd never eat their burgers again when I visit.  Haven't since.

If I'm getting a burger in ATL now, it's usually at The Cheetah or Dantanna's.  Ted's or Five Guys are good choices if you're just running out for a burger.

I would like to try Ann's at some point.

The last two posts are what you need to know, plus this:

http://atlanta.braves.mlb.com/...g/hf_burger.jsp

You can get a package for a ticket and a burger, but as was mentioned earlier it may not be quite the same exprience.
You can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning.

I love TMM.  They are very friendly, and all the steaks I've had them cut for me have been fantastic.  I have yet to try one of their burgers.

Another friend of mine from the neighborhood recommended their lamb burger.  I guess I shouldn't keep ignoring these recommendations. biggrin

+1 

Think hand made versus mass-produced.

The Braves game burgers are good though. The line can be really long and slow.

EDITED TO ASK:

What is this thing called "news" that you see or hear according to the original post? wink

Do people actually turn on televisions to have someone read news to them anymore? eek

Now that you mention it, in my case, I'm afraid it's much worse than that. I actually first heard it on the radio on (Dare I say it) WSB! while driving home from work. 

So congratulations, you've outed me as an old fart.

Now go tweet that in your facebook and sync it up your iPhone. tongue
