Visiting Atlanta next week, first time, two night stay. Will be at either the Hyatt Regency downtown or the Grand Hyatt in Buckhead, looking for a great bar/burger... ideally a great bar with a great burger attached. For a burger bar I'm nearer the dive end than the high end. Used to love McHale's in NYC, if that helps. Like the look of Holeman and Finch but not sure that jetlag will keep me up until burger call at 10pm.
Buckhead seems to be quite 'corporate', which isn't really my thing - Gordon Biersch makes the list because it's very close to the GH in Buckhead. I understand that downtown isn't great, but the HR/Max Lager combo is very neat if the burger is worth it. George's seems like the closest to my ideal (ie neighbourhood bar with good burger) but not sure about getting there... easy ?
Any suggestions on the relative merit of these three, or any other options, gratefully appreciated.
This will be on Monday night btw
