      wow, they actually serve fried plantains
      The plantains are phenomal, if you order something strong in spices, this side item is perfect, otherwise the burgers are great, and the staff very friendly and extremely acomodating, Omg, my vegiterian friend went with me, and no matter how much they tried he was hard to pleased, so not recommended for veggie eaters.

      Best Burger Around
      What's not to love about The Vortex? The atmosphere is fun, the service is great and the burgers are the best. Probably not the place for the reserved or tradition burger crowd. But if you're willing to explore, try something wild from here; you won't regret it.

      Good Food
      Best burger around. Awesome wall art. Dozens of burger types to choose from with all sizes. Original home of the Laughing Skull Beer. 18+ so no worries about annoying little ones.

      the worst
      hamburger was dry & seemed like 'pre-made'. service was the pits. the smoke was enough to kill you. the place seemed like it needed a good cleaning. need i say more... if u have any standards, skip this place!

      Great food. Adult clientele
      Best burger in town. Great tuna melt, cuban sandwich and beer selection is 2nd to none. Hip, edgy, fun atmosphere. No one under 18 allowed at Peachtree location (not sure about the other one).
