This is a great throwback to the old 50's malt shop. Great burgers, milkshakes, and fries. Can't eat it everyday, but it's a great treat!

The burgers are great but the sides need to go back to being made from scratch. Burgers are cooked right the way you like them. Cool little bar area, booths and takes with a larger room for a big family event. Decent beer selection. Cute soda fountain feature to get your dairy fix with a float, sundae, malt or whatever....

Since moving to Georgia I've been here four times. Every time the service has been very good. The burgers were done exactly the way we ask for them every time. The atmosphere is back in the day with pictures of Elvis and other notable stars all over the walls and there are themed seating areas that make one reminisce about... More

Tried the Mick Burger - this was a very juicy burger with excellent flavors. Our waitress was very pleasant. If you like sweet tea, this tea is very sweet.

Quaint little 50's type dinner. Lots of memorabilia on the wall. Great burgers and sweet potato tots.

I thought the place was closed the first and second time I stopped by. Parking is not ideal, and the second time I went was only because I was craving fried pickles and this is the only place near me that serves them. The service here was horrible, maybe they had a bad day.

We waited 40 minutes for our order. The staff seemed a little overwhelmed. The burgers were a little over cooked. I also ordered chicken tenders which were definitely frozen. Crunchy on the outside, cool on the inside. They used to have great food. I hope the other day was just a hiccup.

Thank Essabae

Voted 2013 & 2012 Best Burger in Atlanta by AJC readers! 2013 World Food Championships Competitor!

Welcome to KirbyG's,(R) a cook-to-order family owned diner that began in 2008. We've trademarked a new name since then but we still strive to make your experience enjoyable. KirbyG's(R) is our tribute to the 1950s! So, take the Pit Crew challenge and stroll down memory lane. Put a name to a face, a quote to a star & a character to a movie. For the very brave, you may even attempt to find them on our walls. Patrons are treated to handpattied burgers such as Ike's "I Like Cheese" Burger, Ole Blue Eyes and The Duke. And, if a hamburger isn't for you, diners will find mouth-watering delectables such Desi's Fried Dill Pickles, Rock-a-Billy's Grilled Chicken, and the Whiz Kids Philly Cheesesteak. Topped off with a hand-spun shake or a cold microbrew, patrons will find that "The 50's Never Tasted Better!
