Burgers for Brunch at Atlanta's Holeman & Finch
When anyone tells you that Holeman & Finch has the best burger in Atlanta, you probably think to yourself, "So what? There are a lot of great burgers in Atlanta," which is true. Each burger joint has its own way of doing things, whether it be branding themselves gourmet, grass-fed or over-the-top. But H&F is in a league all its own. Driving down Peachtree Street, you can find pretty much all of the city's top rated restaurants. Tucked on the back side of an apartment complex is the restaurant and cocktail bar. I recommend skipping the tables and sitting at the bar, where all the action is. The H&F bartenders know everything about specialty cocktails and every obscure beer, wine or liquor you can think of. They sell said obscure beverages at their own bottle shop because they are that unique. During the week, the restaurant serves farm to table fare, all with the Southern twist. They don't take reservations, so it's not uncommon to see a line out the door and a wait time of 2 1/2 hours. What really makes this burger fantastic is the bread, which H&F makes in house and sells to other restaurants. You can only order one of 24 at 10 pm nightly or anytime during Sunday brunch. They quite routinely run out because they're that good. It comes with two patties, cheese, onions and pickles with a side of fries for $12. But don't try to make substitutions or tell them how you want it cooked. You get what you get and you don't pitch a fit.
