The Elvis Burger from The Vortex

My mom sent me an email about this place called The Vortex here in Atlanta that she saw on the travel channel. They serve a variety of interesting burgers including one called The Elvis Burger.

Here’s what the entrance looks like:20090220-_mg_1734

The Elvis Burger consists of a juicy half pound burger, fried bananas, bacon, and a large slathering of creamy peanut butter. Yep, Peanut Butter on a burger… interesting… I’m a big fan of a peanut butter so I knew I had to try this epic burger. So last night was the big night. 20090516-_mg_4499

First of all this thing was huge! Probably at least 6 inches tall. As I ate it, I got lots of peanut butter and hamburger juice all over my face and hands… I liked the combo of sweet fried bananas mixed with the peanut butter but paired with the bacon and burger just didn’t seem to fit together that well. There was definitely a flavor fight happening in my mouth. I don’t think I would order it again but I’m really glad they make this thing and I’m really glad I tried it. I do want to sample the other burgers on the list, like the Double Coronary Bypass Burger! yummy!

  1. UGH!! I don’t think this is what I’d try first. Bring on the chocolate covered pickles with chocolate chips in the mayo!!!

  2. In the late 70’s my mom managed a truck stop, and being the peanut butter lover that she was, she added peanut butter to her burger in the restaurant. A truck driver saw her eat it and wanted one. She decided to add it to the menu and truck drivers from all over came to order the peanut butter burger. She was a true Elvis fan and may have got the inspiration from him.
