Grindhouse Aims To Kill It Downtown

Opening next week, Grindhouse Killer Burgers is the latest in what seems to be a growing trend of boutique burger joints. Owner Alex Brounstein has taken over the old Red's Tasty Express in the Sweet Auburn Curb Market at 209 Edgewood Ave. Located in downtown Atlanta, not far from Georgia State University, the eatery's location is between three student dorms that together house nearly 3,000 students! Though the area in which it is located may not be thought of as the safest by some, it's the revitalization and redevelopment of real estate downtown that will make the progress necessary for downtown to thrive in ways it has not recently. With a menu unlike our local Flip, it more closely resembles Flip burger that is located inside Bloomingsdale's New York flagship. With options of single or double patties of fresh ground beef, fresh turkey or veggie along with a plethora of topping selections for under $10 bucks, its sounds like a winning menu. If you don't feel comfortable with building your own burger, pre "styled" burgers are also available. Our favorite from the menu is, "The Hypocrite" a veggie burger with Grindhouse chili, thick cut bacon and Pepper Jack cheese. Though we hope to drop by prior to opening and check out the space, Grindhouse already has both a Facebook and Twitter account for those that would kill to be the first to know! Repeat Atlanta!

If the food is good I could really be in to this place. It's good to see a trailblazer trying to help revitalize the community in that area by starting a business there.

Burger - good, but overpriced
Look - good, but out of place
Location - Awful, really awful

...Chances of getting enough people, (esp. biz and students) to make the trek down to this hidden joint adjacent to crack houses and in a market thats so unsafe there are multiple armed guards at virtually every door... virtually nonexistent
