YOUR PICKS
1. Chevy’s Diner
You say, “Chevy’s Diner in McDonough makes the best burger! Old Blue Eyes is a half pound of awesome-ness with two pieces of thick cut bacon and bleu cheese crumbles.. There’s something about the seasonings they use in the freshly made patties, y’all. It’s just the best burger I’ve ever had!” and “Fantastic hunks of beef on enormous buns with fresh everything — This is the kind of hamburger that you crave and nothing else will do until you can get back over to Chevy’s.”

2. US Café
3. The Vortex
4. Farm Burger
5. George’s
6. Grindhouse
7. Ann’s Snack Bar

Sometimes the simple pleasures are the best. That's what you'll get with Bocado's classic burger, elevated by the finest ingredients. It's our critic's pick for best burger in and around Atlanta. Photo: Becky Stein / Special

OUR PICKS
1. Bocado
The AJC dining team’s Popular Eats specialist Jon Watson says, “Chef Todd Ginsberg’s burger at Bocado, a double stack of house-ground farm-raised beef, American cheese and house-made pickles served on an H&F bun, stands out amongst the many contenders for Atlanta’s best burger. Ginsberg’s simple preparation and attention to quality ingredients makes this the strongest offering of its kind in town.”

Tavern 99 in Buckhead is awesome. Flip – one of the worst burgers in the city. The staff sucks as much or more than the food.

@Rick James, Just to clarify I am speaking of the Vortex in Midtown. Rude is an understatement. No love for the folks in the hood.

Lucky’s Burger & Brew in Roswell. The Undertaker is a Keeper! Onion Rings, Fired Artichoke Hearts, Old School Beer Specials. And you can bring your dog to the patio as well. Very Good food and the service is outstanding. My mouth is watering thinking about it.

I had my favorites until I tried Kaleidoscope’s burger with the pimento cheese, chow chow, and slaw. Juicy, delicious, my favorite burger in Atlanta by far. Nothing even comes close to the myriad of flavors on this piece of meat.

The BEST burger in Atlanta is at Vortex. A chedder cheese burger and sweet potato fries at the Votex is TOPS in my book!

Fan of the Counter, but it is a hike to get there. For something I can get to all the time is Cheeseburger Bobbys in Kennesaw. I know they are a chain, but I find their burgers superior the Five Guys.
