Headed out of town and choice of places.. here or the “V”. Duh... best burgers in town and great beers. Just wish I had two stomachs to eat more. Great service and greater food and greatest beer.

Traveling with my 15 year old went here for lunch. No where does it tell you that you can’t eat here unless you are 21. So we made a trip there and couldn’t eat there. Better advertising is needed.

I love Vortex, and always stop in for a laughing skull and rebel outlaw burger. This time we tried the loaded tots as well. Delicious! Vortex is consistently great....just wish they still had sweet potato fries and marshmallow dip to go with my burger.

I am not sure if they have gluten free bun? I know I have had them wrap my hamburger in lettuce. The burgers are so good It is worth trying them even if you went bun free (That is what I do most of the time)
