Back in the day, a grindhouse was a theater that showed movies that were just on the border of acceptable to watch. Thankfully, Atlanta’s two Grindhouse Killer Burgers locations, in Sweet Auburn Curb Market and on Piedmont Road, serve burgers that are more than worth the price of admission.
Like most burger joints these days, it’s a build-your-own deal, with beef, turkey, or veggie burgers, with veggies and sauces thrown on for free. There’s a $0.50 charge for cheese and regular toppings, and a $1.00 for premium toppings. For example, a bacon double cheeseburger will cost you around $7.50, and you can add fries and a drink for another $2.50. Yes, it’s more than double what you’d pay at McDonald’s or Burger King, but here they use fresh beef, ground fresh, and cooked to medium (unless you ask for something different).
The Apache burger is topped with pepper jack cheese, grilled onions, lettuce & the pièce de résistance– a roasted New Mexico green chili. This blast of Western flavors has made this burger one of Grindhouse’s most popular menu items for years. We definitely recommend pairing it with some onion rings because… well… everything’s better with kickass onion rings.
If you’re over 21, be sure to try a boozy milkshake. Whether it’s the delicious banana chocolate peanut butter flavors of the Monkey Wrench, or the Puddin’ Out, which comes complete with ‘nilla Wafers, you won’t be disappointed.
Dixie Style Burger
Welcome to the south where we put pimento cheese and fried green tomatoes on our burgers! If that wasn’t enough for ya, Grindhouse also adds crunchy Carolina coleslaw & chipotle ranch. The Dixie Style Burger is basically the food-personification of the word “y’all” & we LOVE it.
