Flip Burger Boutique, is still in the top ranks of burger joints, having been listed in the top 10 burger spots in the country by Fox News as well as a mention from The Boston Globe all in the last month. Not having been back to Flip Burger in about three years, I visited on Cinco de Mayo last month.
My first visit was the Howell Mill Road location, and on this visit I went to the Buckhead location. Decor remains much the same with swanky white seating and ornate mirrors and wall decor. Since the weather was pleasant, we chose outdoor seating.
As it was Cinco de Mayo, we couldn’t resist the Gingerita shake made with Tequila, Ginger ice cream and lime sherbet. Oh my heavens, I can’t wait to get this again (it is available each day, not just on Cinco de Mayo)! However, virgin shakes are nothing to sneeze at with flavors like Nutella and burnt marshmallow, Cap’n Crunch and Strawberry Shortcake just to name a few.
I opted for the Carnitas burger topped with pork cheek and salsa verde. I sampled my companion’s burgers as well: BBQ and Chorizo. Super tasty. All were pleased with their burger choice and we mopped up both burgers and sides.
The burgers look deceptively small (somewhere between the size of slider and regular burger). But once all the toppings are piled on, it is quite a filling meal.
