As far as Atlanta goes, Ann's always gets a lot of raves, but I think there are others just as good, without having to wait, wade through attitude, and carry a BUG...that's back-up gun!
They ain't kiddin' about the "Ghetto" part. I thought it was a mess to eat, but some folks love that grease factor. Something I think Ann was actually trying to achive. If so, she did it!
Personally, the Vortex makes me happy. Lots of different burgers, fixed a lot of different ways. I like the "Ragin' Cajun" Ostrich burger.
Overall, superior bar food, all the way around. Plus, I like young girls with ink & pierced things!
My other favorite is The Highlander on Monroe Dr. Kinda like the Vortex. Again, superior burger, superior bar food, and more hot chicks with nose rings.
Maybe the biggest burger in the city, is also one of the better ones. It can be found at the Downwind Restaurant, located inside the Peachtree-Dekalb Airport. Great date place, as the deck overlooks the runways, and you can watch the planes take-off and land. Fun!
