Not A Damn Chance Burger (or “NADC” for less of a mouthful) is a smashburger spot from the folks behind Pasta Bar and operates out of a window in the back of Idle Hands on Rainey Street. NADC Burger’s menu is short: one burger, a grilled cheese that’s essentially just burger toppings (and not worth it), and fries. The burger is made with wagyu beef and served on a Martin’s potato roll with secret sauce and comes in at $16, no fries included. It’s aggressively salted, and saucy enough that the bun will probably collapse into a soggy mess about midway through, but the patties have a great crust and are juicy throughout. This is the kind of burger that’s best enjoyed after one too many beers—thankfully, NADC is open very late.
