Cheap Eats: Grindhouse Killer Burgers

posted on November 4, 2009 at 8:29 am


To most people, a burger is just a burger — a timeless American treat worth the occasional caloric splurge. Playful flavor combinations and fancy deconstructions are exciting, but there’s something to be said about a spot, such as Grindhouse Killer Burgers (209 Edgewood Ave., 404-522-3444,, that skips the pretense and gets straight to the beef.

Owner Alex Brounstein (a real estate developer and attorney) chose the Sweet Auburn Curb Market as the restaurant’s location for many reasons. The market already has a captive audience of shoppers with food on the mind, and the overhead is much cheaper than a traditional bricks and mortar space. What’s more, the restaurant’s presence helps revitalize a historic Atlanta food-centric landmark.

Amid the hustle and bustle of the market, tucked away in a corner, sits a curving counter surrounded by stools. The seating faces a semi-open kitchen and a makeshift movie theater where kooky action movies such as Kung Fu Hustle are projected on the wall. Click here to read the rest…

    Hit Grindhouse today at noon with fifteen people in line. Worth the wait. Sliders were a hit with the kids.

    Don't forget to get your parking validated!!

    Agree with you re the Apache Burger. So good! Ditto the onion rings. Can't wait to go back.

    Grindhouse is great! I loved the Apache Burger and delicious french fries. Afterwards, I grabbed coffee at this adorable little coffee shop in the market. Congrats to Sweet Auburn- it's coming back go life.
