Flip Burger on Roswell Road in Buckhead has closed its doors after seven years. The gourmet burger chain announced the closure on their Instagram page on Monday afternoon with no explanation, asking burger seekers to continue visiting the original Atlanta location on Howell Mill Road.
This is the second Flip Burger to close in Atlanta in just two years. The outpost in Poncey-Highland on North Highland Avenue shuttered in November 2015. That closure was blamed on its close proximity to the Buckhead and Westside locations.
Flip Burger, from Top Chef alum and Atlanta ex-pat Richard Blais, expanded to Nashville in 2008 and Birmingham in 2009. The Nashville outpost shuttered this past September citing increased competition from other burger chains, including the Atlanta-based Farm Burger. Only Birmingham and the original burger outpost on Howell Mill remain open.
Eater Atlanta has reached out to Flip Burger for further comment on the Buckhead closure and will update the story as more information becomes available.
