488 Flat Shoals Ave. 404-522-3950 http://www.badearl.com 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...

Ann's Snack Bar
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 formore...
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...

Who would guess that a chain restaurant would serve the best burger in town, but TED'S MONTANA GRILL has won us over. (Ted, of course, is Atlanta's own Mr. Turner, who started the chain with George McKerrow Jr., of Longhorn Steakhouse fame.) These snazzy burger joints have a warm, masculine vibe that feels cozy to settle into. The patty in question - choose from beef or bison raised on Turner's ranches - can be topped with infinite combinations, though our favorite remains the New Mexico burger with Anaheim chiles, guac and Jack cheese. Calorie-watchers can order a pious chicken sandwich, but really, Ted's is all about chowing down on a big ol' burger in style.

You haven't lived until you feel like you're dying after eating a "ghetto burger" at ANN'S SNACK BAR, an eight-stool diner that's been in business almost 30 years. We content ourselves with a double cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato and a small amount of mayo ... and we still can't lie down comfortably for several hours after eating. Delicious, gigantic, cooked before your very eyes, any burger here is spectacular. Miss Ann has rules - like not putting your baby on the counter or expecting her to make your order before she's ready. A trip. "1615 Memorial Drive. 404-687-9207." less...

1615 Memorial Drive 404-687-9207 Honestly, we keep looking for a burger we find as sloppily delicious as Ann Price's, but 27 years have given her the instincts of a ground beef goddess. Miss Ann throws the meat from the package on a hot grill, smashes it with onions and seasonings and then piles the huge thing on a toasted bun. We prefer the double cheeseburger with just a bit of mayo, but there is also a meat lover's hallucination called the "ghetto burger. Imagine a whole cow ground up and smothered in chili and bacon. less...

You may not curse, you may not put your baby on the counter and you may not order until she's good and ready to cook for you. What you get is a gigantic burger cooked with onions and spices, served on a fresh bun. Although we prefer the merely huge double cheeseburger, you might want to try the infamous "ghetto burger," which is the size of a small farm animal, smothered in chili and bacon. less...

Truly a burger joint, Vortex will suck you in with an impressive selection of original hamburgers, including teriyaki, Sante Fe and pimento cheese. The Western BBQ is particularly mouth-watering, topped with ham and cheese and smothered in BBQ sauce. If you seek a meatless meal, Vortex offers a number of scrumptious veggie burgers. The dish comes with a side, but the burger itself is a meal. The atmosphere, which has an eternal-happy-hour feel, is as much of an attraction as the food. less...
