Bobby Flay’s Burger Palace is open at the Atlanta airport

The battle of the celebrity-owned burger stalls is about to go down at Hartsfield-Jackson airport now that chef Bobby Flay’s Burger Palace is open. The restaurant is hosting a grand opening Tuesday, October 23, at 11 a.m. in Concourse B at Gate 26. The latest airport burger kiosk joins the newly-opened Shake Shack — owned by prolific NYC restaurateur Danny Meyer — located on Concourse A near gate A28. Much like Meyer’s burger shack, Flay’s palace serves several types of burgers topped with a variety of accoutrements as well as shakes that can be spiked with vodka, and fries, including sweet potato. Flay will be on hand to cut the ribbon next Tuesday and to sign books. For those who prefer to keep their burgers local, Atlanta’s Grindhouse Killer Burgers has locations on concourses D and T.
