FLIP Burger Boutique, Atlanta, GA
We tried FLIP Burger Boutique on a beautiful, cool fall Sunday afternoon and we had high hopes. We’d been hearing many good reports about the place so we had to check it out for ourselves. Unfortunately, we didn’t flip over FLIP.
We were not surprised it was the middle of the afternoon and FLIP had a TON of diners. Although we were seated right away, it took some waiting to get our drinks. The menu was a minefield of burger (both beef and veggie) choices, many of which were confusing and needed an explanation. Sorry guys, we just didn’t GET IT.
We started out with fried pickles for an appetizer, they came out cold. The sauce was nice and the light batter was unique but, it just went downhill from there.
We all had some type of beef burger but I was so confused by the time we finally placed our order I couldn’t begin to tell you which. Our server said they didn’t really do a “build-a-burger” yet she said “pick the one closest and then add/hold what you want/don’t want”. So what’s the diff? Still confused.
For sides we chose onion rings, french fries and something called “Buffalo Sweetbreads”. Not sure what these actually were as they were described as “like chicken”. Hmmm…. I didn’t really care and they were really very good.
When the fries and onion rings came they were cold. Now I don’t mean “not as warm as we would have preferred” but stark cold. We had to send them back. To their credit, they did fix it and brought some hot ones but by that time “the thrill is gone”. The onion rings were stringy rather than meaty. The fries were oh so ever ho-hum. We were ready to be wow’d and had such a disappointing afternoon.
The burgers were good but barely warm enough to eat. Were they having a problem running food that day or what? There sure seemed to be plenty of people standing around talking to each other and, to be fair, we always had drinks refills promptly. IDK, go figure. But serving food hot is a must.
The only thing colder than the food was the atmosphere. We did not feel that warm, welcome feeling that ANY restaurant should make their guests feel. When we departed we were not greeted and thanked for our patronage.
The other thing is this place doesn’t come cheap! We don’t think FLIP Burger Boutique is worth your time or money.
