This place is so wonderful I want to type this rating twice. While the selection has too much garbage on it, there are always a few beers that will nicely compliment your meal. And OH MY GOD THE FOOD! In many trips here other important aspects of a good beer bar/restaurant experience are always incredible. The burgers are an absolute knockout, the service, every time, is near perfect(management does a wonderful job training/hiring people) and itís just a really fun place to sit inside or out and enjoy Atlanta. The "Bar Rules" written on the front of the menu had me laughing so hard i was hysterical. Highly Recommended, unless youíre vegetarian ;)

Great bottle selection and usually something tasty on tap too. You have to ask what it is though. Best burgers, especially the coronary bypass.

My favourite burger is the Coronary Bypass, and service is usually very prompt for such a laid-back place. Draught selection is not superb, but bottle is for an Atlanta restaurant. Staff is always friendly if youíre willing to be patient and enjoy your time there. Highly recommended for out-of-town travelers if looking for a good burger joint to eat at.

Packed on a Friday night - I guess from being featured on that "Man vs Food" show. Regardless, the service was quick and friendly and, uh, kinda hot... The burgers were excellent and the beer selection, while not mind blowing, was more than adequate. Fun place.

One of the most unique places, with purposefully rude, but very attentive service. The beer list isnít large or amazing, but they have several good beer, including rare catches and local brews. The burgers, without a doubt, are the highlight, followed slightly by the sweet potato fries. The prices arenít great, but they arenít a rip-off either. Even as a straight-laced geek, this place has become a go-to hangout.

The beer selection here is pretty good but not great for Atlanta. But with 15 taps and 75 or so bottles its not bad either. The atmosphere is a little on the gothy side. The menu brags of zero tolerance for asshole customers. I think its a good policy! I got very good service there.

I was a little disappointed in this place the last time I visited. They chose to be 18 and over in order to allow smoking inside. They still have great burgers and a good beer selection, but Iíd prefer to not be bathed in smoke when I go for a good beer. Seriously, considering how empty the place was when I visited, theyíre running off more customers than they attract by allowing smoking.

Laid-back atmosphere that has a nice mix of all sorts of people, but seemed mostly the college and punk crowd when I was there. Fairly good selection of brews and nice enough servers. Didnít try the food. Iím just getting too old for the loud music and smoking places, but otherwise this is a nice hangout.
