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 you’re 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.

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 it’s 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 you’re vegetarian ;)

If you are in midtown or at gordon biersch (1 block away) then you should probalby check this place out. First of all, most of the waitresses are really hot- if you are into the peircings and tatoos etc. They also have Poker Tourneys on Wed and Thursday nights I think. Food was awesome- We got a couple burgers, and they do live up to thier reputation. I had the Coronary bypass- just what I needed after I ate it. Expansive beer list in both bottle and Tap. about half of the taps are good beers, the rest being mostly macro stuff. This one hot waitress randomly asked if we wanted the Happy Ending. Not knowing what she meant we just said - "of course!" , then she came back with our sweetwater happy ending impy stout. Oh well....

Definitely one of the coolest places in midtown and the best place to go in town for a cheesebruger. Selection of beer is pretty decent, but they have a tendency to stick to what sells. The 5 points location experiments a little bit more with their list.

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

They have a sister location in Little Five points I prefer. Love the selection of alcohol in general. Lots of beer, lots of scotch, lots of everything else. Great burgers and hot dogs. The staff is a lot of fun, and there isn’t a lot of BS to it. Don’t expect any of them to kiss your ass though, not that kind of place. Probably why I like it so much...
