Best milkshake in and around Atlanta

YOUR PICKS

Chick-fil-A's hand-spun shakes

Chick-fil-A's hand-spun shakes

1) Chick-fil-A

You said, “None of the fancy places can touch their shakes!”

2) Steak and Shake

3) Flip Burger Boutique

4) Zesto

5) OK Café

OUR PICKS

1) Rita’s

Dining critic Meridith Ford Goldman says, “The power-packed punch of mango ice with vanilla custard from this Philly-based chain (I like mine better without the cookies) will elevate your mood so much that you’re bound to burn some extra calories just by drinking it.”

2) 10 Degrees South’s “Don Pedro”

3) The Varsity’s F.O. (frosted orange)

4) Flip Burger Boutique

Krispy Kreme is overrated. Go for the pistachio.

5) Dairy Queen

Specifically, the “banana cream pie dream pie” Blizzard

These opinion type polls are a waste of time. Any time you get suburban morons voting for things you are going to get the lowest of the low type votes. Burger King??!! Are you kidding me? If you eat at burger king enough to have even realized that they have a milkshake then you should probably just kill yourself. Or dont, you will be dead soon anyways.

Edgewood, you do realize that Flip is rigging the contest? Or did you think that Atlanta had suddenly developed an unquenchable thirst for Fois Gras milkshakes?

They have other types of milkshakes besides Fois Gras (that is disgusting by the way). It is not rigged, it is that every few years or so all the SUVs in MariettaAlpharetta Land hear of a safe eatery downtown to try. Flip is this years choice because of the American Idol like appeal of Richard Blais. Dont worry, it will all be over soon and they will go back to eating at Burger King.

Apply your critical thinking skills. How many people around atlanta have gone to Flip compared to steak and shake, chick fil a, DQ etc? Yet overwhelming voting is going to Flip. But apparently anyone who lives in Alpharetta, marietta etc eats nothing but fastfood. I’ve had there milkshakes and they are not better than any average fastfood chain. Just different. I’d protest the rigging of these contests that encourage managers of small town eateries to shoot for free publicity.

The Milkshakes at FLIP burger on Howell Mill are the best. My favorite is the burnt marshmallow and nutella shake. My husband loves the krispy kreme shake.

I think EdgewoodAdam is a pretty good example of the pretension that makes so many people laugh each time the “in crowd” declare a hot new eatery as “THE BEST.” I like Flip. I’ve been there four times now since it opened a few months back. And if it is still there twenty-four months from now, I will be completely surprised. Because, you see, snobby guys like EdgewoodAdam latch onto what ever the flavor of the month is, and then move on. It’s a shame. As much as EdgewoodAdam likes to turn up his nose at those who live outside of the Perimeter, I’ll guarantee that Richard Blais hopes that they keep coming back, because he knows that Adam and his intown hummingbirds are too busy trying to find the next “BIG THING” to sustain anything original for more than a short time.

Hey Greg,
I know of a real good place to get a milkshake. Its in my pants but you have to work for the whipped cream. Only served in one size though. LARGE.

I’ve tried ‘em all, even Flip’s, but the best is the chocolate shake at Wendy’s. Yup, Wendy’s.

Burger Kings the real deal. Farkin’ flame broiled and a homestyle milkshake. Get you a ho afterwards and you got a good day.

Pimping Ho’s all day is hard work and only a BK Milkshake can quench the thirst I develop after a hard day of pimpin’.
