1. FLiP Burger Boutique 1587 Howell Mill Rd NW, Atlanta, GA 30318

Flip Burger Boutique, the Atlanta-born, modern burger joint from acclaimed Chef Richard Blais, was one of the city’s first to hone in on boutique burgers, and it ignited a frenzy. Now with locations in Nashville and Birmingham, Flip continues to serve the Southeastern masses over a dozen innovative burgers, sides, and nitro-milkshakes. You can’t go wrong with the Classic, but the Stack is something really special (two specialty-seasoned patties, American cheese, grilled onions, tomato, shredded lettuce, pickles, flip sauce, you’re welcome). If you’re craving adventure, try the raw steak tartare burger, or go poultry with the fried chicken sandwich, or avoid meat all together with the "Fauxlafel." No matter what you order, it’s important to enjoy it with a side of sweet potato tots, and to wash it down with a milkshake.

2. YEAH! Burger 1168 Howell Mill Rd, Atlanta, GA 30318

YEAH!, the fast-casual burger brainchild of local culinary star Shaun Doty and his buddy Lil' Jon Erik Maier, lets you custom-rig natural and organic meats, breads, sauces, and cheeses into a beautiful burger of your own. You can go as simple as you want with a grass-fed beef patty and the usual lettuce and tomato add-ons, or go off the deep-end with a bison patty topped with pimento cheese, hot relish, onion rings and bacon. Point is: the options are endless and the choice is yours.

5. BurgerFi 1520 Avenue Pl, Ste B-140, Atlanta, GA 30329

No, BurgerFi isn't how Marines ask for a cheeseburger in the mess hall. Nor is it an experimental procedure that changes you into a juicy double-stack (…although that would be pretty cool). BurgerFi is Emory Point's home for burgers, dogs, and frozen custard.
