Atlanta-based burger concept Grindhouse Killer Burgers is expanding to the Westside with an eighth location planned to open on Chattahoochee Avenue in 2025. The new 7,000-squarefoot concept will include a second-story deck and ample indoor- outdoor dining, as well as Grindhouse’s classic menu of freshly ground beef and housemade toppings. In the meantime, look for the Grindhouse Killer Burgers catering food truck at events around Atlanta. Alex Brounstein, who owns the restaurant with Johnny Farrow, dishes on why they chose the Westside and what’s new.

Why did you choose the Westside for this new location?

All five of the existing Grindhouse locations are on the eastside of Atlanta, and even farther east in Athens, so going to the Westside was always our plan for the next restaurant. This location on Chattahoochee just seemed perfect, though: a corner lot and very visible across from TopGolf and in front of The Works development. And the old bank branch building had a retro feel to it.

What makes the Westside location unique?

It’s our only location on the Westside! Also, the design will be a little different with some architectural elements we haven’t done before. This is the first location we have designed post- COVID, so the layout is different in terms of outdoor space and making things easier to pick up takeout food.

What excites you the most about this new location?

I think the design by our architect Leslie Ellsworth of Studio SOGO is going to be very eye-catching. Also I’m excited to get to know a whole new customer base.

Will there be anything new/ unique on the menu?

Nope, all Grindhouse locations have the exact same menu. The only thing that can vary by location is our selection of top-shelf whiskeys and tequilas.

Can you tell us about the Grindhouse truck?

We have been working on the catering/food truck for a while. There have been so many requests for catering that we had to turn down in the past because burgers and fries don’t always travel very well. So our goal was to design a truck that can bring the entire Grindhouse experience to you—and not just the amazing food but the entire Grindhouse vibe. So we can now offer catering for any size occasion.
