Grindhouse wins every year for a reason, it's f*cking delicious. We don't know what kind of crack Alex Brounstein puts on his grill, but we're totally addicted. Disclaimer: They do not serve crack it's just really good. Now that we've decided the Impossible Burger is like eating negative calories, you'll find us at the Grant Park location all the time.

Farm Burger
When Farm Buger first opened its Decatur location in the spring of 2010, people lined up, often waiting 30 minutes or more for a basket of ethical fast food. Three years and three new locations later, you can still find a queue spilling out of the true farm-to-table restaurant. Meat is sourced from Moonshinemore...
When Farm Buger first opened its Decatur location in the spring of 2010, people lined up, often waiting 30 minutes or more for a basket of ethical fast food. Three years and three new locations later, you can still find a queue spilling out of the true farm-to-table restaurant. Meat is sourced from Moonshine Meats, a collective of Georgia farmers and ranchers founded by Farm Burger partner Jason Mann. Most vegetables also come from area farms such as Crystal Organic, Love is Love at Gaia Gardens, and Riverview Farms. Complement the clean flavor of grassfed beef with offbeat burger toppings such as oxtail marmalade, roasted bone marrow, or Decimal Place Farms goat cheese. less...

THE EARL is frequently praised for its bar food, partly because of the now-legendary Earl Burger, which this past year earned kudos in a much-cited Wall Street Journal piece about Atlanta as America’s burger capital. The unce patty of Black Angus beef is perfectly prepared to order over an open flame. It’s never greasy, features fresh and perfectly proportioned dressings (leafy green lettuce, red onions, tomato, pickles), and is served on a buttered and toasted sesame seed bun. The optional wasabi mayo offers a nice change of pace and displays an attention to detail that allows the Earl Burger to sizzle to the top. less...

Don’t make the mistake of setting your baby on the counter at ANN’S SNACK BAR, or you’ll probably be asked to leave, according to a sign at this 34-year-old, eight-stool restaurant. In fact, don’t speak at all until Ann Price asks for your order. She is too busy for idle chat while making burgers the size of — well — a ghetto. The “Ghetto Burger” indeed fills a plate and is covered with chili. We prefer the double cheeseburger with just a touch of mayo. Fries are hot and crunchy. Actually, so are the deep-fried hot dogs. less...

Diehard burger fiends in the know agree that the best versions of this most American of all meals can be had at U.S. CAFE EXPRESS. Beef burgers — available as hearty single combinations (with the usual topping suspects of lettuce, tomato, cheese and bacon) or as hefty, gotta-squash-’em doubles — deliver pure red-meat gratification. But it’s the turkey burgers that are unexpectedly supreme. The thick, juicy burgers are as rich as their beef brethren and as satisfying to your meat-craving animal heart, but almost completely fat free. Until you slather them with mayo, that is. less...
