Who better to talk about the Perfect Hamburger than our friends from the VORTEX Bar & Grill in Atlanta.The VORTEX has been voted the Best Hamburger in Atlanta for the past 13 years in a row. VORTEX burgers are a two fisted delight. Our daughter just graduated from Georgia Tech and lived a block from the midtown location so it became our neighborhood bar. We still visit the VORTEX regularly when we are in Atlanta.
