FLIP is a trendy burger joint in Atlanta's Westside that is known by a lot of people for its chef, Richard Blais from Top Chef. The restaurant is very busy and does not take reservations (first-come, first-serve only). Even during non-peak hours, there can be a wait. Bar seating is the fastest way to be seated. There are booths along the wall and tables in the center placed closely together. The restaurant decor is modern and stylish with elaborate graphics on the wall and flat panel TVs made to look like framed artwork. The space isn't very big and because of the crowd, it gets very loud inside. They also offer outdoor patio seating. The restaurant has a small parking lot, so if you can't find a spot there, just park along the adjacent side street (Verner). The burgers themselves are pretty good - flavorful and sizing is smaller, comparable to H&F and Bocado, not Vortex. The beef burgers are made from grass-fed beef and they also offer a variety of other burger meats, including crab, lamb, veal, sausage, and tuna. The burgers are creative - e.g. they offer a Korean burger made from Wagyu beef, a gyro burger with lamb and tzatziki sauce, and a spicy chicken Thai burger. Sides, including confit duck nuggets, are extra. FLIP is also known for their milkshakes. I've tried the Nutella + burnt marshmallow and the Krispy Kreme shakes and each are sweet, super rich, and creamy. You will probably leave full if having a burger, side, and shake here.

Harlot gets two stars for a variety of reasons: 1. It is overpriced and crowded. 2. I went there and they over charged me by $5, called them left a polite message what this was concerning and requested a call back. Waited 5 days, with no responce from them I was forced to open up a dispute with my CC company. 3. Besides the billing error I've never had bad services, but I've never had good service. To me the seem mediocre at best. It earned its second star for carrying St. George Absinthe.
