Burger Week continues with a map of Atlanta's newest burgers. They range from sliders to double stacks and hail from restaurants that recently added burgers to the menu or that opened in the last four months (plus two so new that they haven't quite started serving yet).

Eater Atlanta Burger Heatmap: Where to Find New Burgers
Ford Fry's King + Duke won't open until late May, but exec chef Joe Schafer has a burger on the menu: The Duke, with house-ground Angus chuck & dry-aged trimmings, white cheddar, coal-roasted onion & mushroom preserves, and pastry chef Chrysta Poulos's buttermilk-caraway bun.
Ben's Brown Bag
Ben's Brown Bag opened quietly just a couple weeks ago, replacing Curly's Fried Chicken on Howell Mill. The takeout-only spot has a $5 burger with add-on toppings like bacon, fried pickles, and a "sloppy Joe scoop."
So the burger has been around for quite some time, but now it can be found in three new locations: the three H&F Burger stands inside Turner Field. Early reports say to expect long lines but authentic Holeman & Finch tastes.
Mother opened earlier this month and serves a "gooey double stack" lamb burger with white American cheese, spring mix, tomato, and herbed mayo, similar to the In-N-Out and Shake Shack creations but without the beef. The restaurant's kitchen is helmed by Dave Anderson, previously of H. Harper Station and Octopus Bar.

The Argosy opened in East Atlanta in late February, and its plancha burger has two grass-fed beef patties that are pressed in a tortilla press, griddled with American cheese and caramelized onions, and topped with pickles. Knife & Fork's Christiane Lauterbach calls it "delicious."
BurgerFi's very first Georgia location opens today in Emory Point. The Florida-based chain offers lots of burgers, so check out the menu here.
Bantam & Biddy
As of April 1, Bantam & Biddy offers 13 sliders on Monday evenings as part of $3 Slider Night. Every week will bring new options, but they include falafel, beef brisket, pork belly, and chicken meatball.
The General Muir
The General Muir opened at the end of January, and chef Todd Ginsberg, the man responsible for the Bocado double stack, brought another winning burger to Emory Point: It's a blend of brisket, chuck, and short rib ground in-house and topped with American cheese, shaved onion, pickles, lettuce, and Russian dressing.
Early this year, Livingston Restaurant added a classic cheeseburger to the menu. It's got a salted and peppered blend of chuck and brisket, American cheese, and pickles. Chef Zeb Stevenson says, "We added our burger in January and now it’s overtaken my butcher’s work load."
The burger at Seven Lamps is a blend of grass-fed brisket and top round blend with bacon, caramelized onions, Thousand Island dressing, the kitchen's own B&B pickles, and a grilled cheese gratin on top. It's not on the menu but is available at all times.
Diesel Filling Station
There's a whole new burger menu up at Diesel. See the full list right here; it includes options like the Happy Meal burger, with American cheese, sauteed onions, and Coca-Cola ketchup.
The Atlanta Burger Truck
So new that it's not even open yet, the Atlanta Burger Truck will be at the Atlanta Food Truck Park on Howell Mill starting Thursday. They've got Atlanta-inspired set burgers as well as build-your-own options, so scope the menu right this way.
