Atlanta Restaurant Scene

This Atlanta burger spot was named among the top 31 in the country

It was said to have the best burger in Atlanta by national entertainment website Thrillist , and now it's been named one of the best places for burgers in America.

Fred's Meat & Bread, home of the Burger Stack, was among 31 restaurants named to the list and the only one in Georgia.

"To be fair, Fred's offers up a lot of "meat and bread" options beyond its burger, but the Burger Stack here is the undeniable star and the best reason to visit Atlanta's popular Krog Street Market," Matt Lynch wrote.  Atlanta's best burger tastes, as our national burger critic put it, "like a grilled cheese with meat inside it," with bread-and-butter pickles punctuating the richness and a sesame seed bun doing an admirable job attempting to contain all the cheesy, greasy protein. Once you've had it you may find yourself wanting to return to try the cheesesteak or the chicken Parm, but odds are strong to quite strong you'll buckle in the heat of the moment and have another go round with the Burger Stack."

The burger is also available at The Canteen micro food hall in Midtown . Fred's is owned by Jennifer and Ben Johnson, Shelley Sweet and Chef Todd Ginsberg, who also own Yalla at Krog Street Market , The Canteen and The General Muir and are partnering on the forthcoming Wood's Chapel BBQ in Summerhill. Sweet and the Johnsons are also partners in West Egg Café.
