Atlanta A new burger place opens in Atlanta about as frequently as you want to eat a burger: every day. But the sheer number of legitimately sweet meat-wiches can make it hard to choose which's best... so we did it for you (yayyy!). Here are five new ATL burgers you should formally introduce to your face:
Lamburger at Flip Burger Boutique: This Strauss lamb, feta cheese, marinated vegetable, arugula, pickled red onion, tzatziki & garam masala spice creation isn't baaaaaaaaaaaa-d. In fact, it's pretty frickin' badass. Continue Reading
The Vegan at Yeah! Burger: This thing's got provolone-style cheese, sliced organic avocado, hydroponic arugula, vegan mayo on a Rudi's vegan bun, and... wait, there's no meat on this thing? We didn't even notice the housemade organic vegan patty, and you probably won't either.
The Pounder at US Cafe: The "secret menu" Pounder burger is pretty simple -- it's just lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise, mustard, pickle & onion on top of guess-how-much beef or turkey.
The Rey Mysterio at Cypress Street Pint & Plate: What makes this thing good isn't any mystery. It's the half-pound blackened burger patty, wing sauce, pepper Jack cheese, cayenne mayo, fresh jalapeño & Tabasco-marinated fried onions.
Breakfast All Day Burger at BurgerFi: This all-natural, Angus patty w/ American cheese, hickory bacon, a fried egg, hash browns, grilled onions, and ketchup is drizzled with maple syrup, which means you'll never have to choose between the two best food groups -- brunch and burgers -- again.
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.
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.
Home of the "Super Burger", US Cafe is known for dishing up delicious beef creations and siding them with thirst-quenching brews. But since they've been around for over 25 years, they've had plenty of time to perfect their wings and fries, so don't miss out on the killer sides to go with your monster meatwich.
Midtown's beloved beer emporium, Cypress's got awesome daily features like trivia Wednesdays and 1/2 off apps Friday.
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.
