Everyone seems to visit at least once. Ordering is service is like an atlanta event . They have closed 1 or 2 locations but the downtown area is the famous Varsity. A greasy spoon but tasty . Give it a go and be entertained.

As I understand it this restaurant was started by a Georgia Tech drop out. There are a few locations in Georgia but the original one on North Avenue is worth the trip. It is usually crowded and loud but that is part of the charm and history. It is truly an Atlanta Icon and i enjoy taking people from out of town here. Everything is made fresh but not healthy eats. Very casual!! A great place to grab a bite after an event down town or a night on the town! Old Time favorite...Chili Dog, Onion Rings, Peach Pie, Frosted Orange.....Don't forget your varsity hat

What ya'll have....not for vegans but if you like a burger, hot dog or even grill cheese, this is an Atlanta institution. It is a great spot with kids before doing downtown sightseeing. It is near the North Avenue MARTA station near the campus of Georgia Tech. Their Orange drink is amazing and worth the visit. They also have car hops if you don't want to get out of your car.

When we went it was crowded, there's a whole gift shop practically in the front door. We only had a few minutes to see the menu before we had to order. We pretty much ordered randomly, but it worked out really well for us. The food was hot and fresh, really good. It's an Atlanta tradition, go, wear the hats, have fun!
