Five great Atlanta restaurants
Located in the super-artsy Little Five Points area of Candler Park, The Vortex has perhaps the most unique atmosphere of any restaurant in Atlanta: You enter this popular biker dive through a giant skull. The eclectic decor of bones, coffins, motorcycles, signs, and airplanes will keep you entertained while you wait for your food. The Vortex offers some of the most creative burgers anywhere to be found. The Fat Elvis burger has peanut butter, bacon and fried bananas. The Carnivorgasm has grilled sirloin patties, pulled, smoked pork, bacon, sliced ham, turkey, cheddar cheese, and whiskey pimento cheese. My favorite burger is the Double Coronary Bypass: a half-pound of sirloin patty topped with two fried eggs, six slices of American cheese, and eight slices of bacon, served between two grilled cheese sandwiches that are used in place of regular hamburger buns.
