KirbyG’s Diner and Pub (formerly Chevy’s Diner) in McDonough was the readers’ pick for best burger in and around Atlanta. It might be a surprise winner for those unfamiliar with it, but this restaurant’s fans are passionate about the Henry County spot.

You say, “KirbyG’s (used to be Chevy’s) in McDonough. Big and juicy burgers on a toasted and buttered bun – Delicious! Vortex used to be my favorite, so Vortex-lovers don’t knock KirbyG’s (because of all the nominations it’s getting) until you’ve tried it. It’s worth the trip” and “By the way no shilling here. Just a lot of locals that LOVE to eat at KirbyG’s…..Do not say bad things unless you have tried it!!! Love the Ole Blue Eyes. I do not have to drive into downtown traffic to get an awesome burger.”
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
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.”
