The Varsity has been around for a long time and is an iconic restaurant in Atlanta. The orange drink and orange frosty are both great classics. I like the hot dogs and fries myself to eat. They also have an ice cream bar with tasty ice cream.
The service is exceptionally fast; they have perfected the art of moving people quickly through the line so you never wait more than 2 minutes even when crowded.
The various rooms have televisions playing: some news, some sports, etc which is a nice touch.

Being new to Atlanta I've been told of how great the Varsity was , but when I tried them it wasn't what I thought it would be. Now don't get me wrong the hot dogs weren't bad , but from the talk of the town.... I thought they would be better. I had a slaw dog and a chili dog. The chili dog was a little over priced if you asked me . The team moved the line quickly, but I wouldn't say that they gave me Chick-fil-a type customer service ( best customer service at a fast food restaurant). I hear that back in the day it was better ,so try it for yourself and then you be the judge.

Love stopping by The Varsity on our way through Atlanta. The FO is definitely a MUST try if you stop.

Stopped in for lunch while in Atlanta based on some friends recommendation. First, I knew this was downtown but wow. The food was okay but not spectacular. I've had better burgers.

I've lived in Atlanta for 2 years and this past weekend was the first time I went to the Varisty. It's definitely a staple here and a must try. I had a cheeseburger, onions rings and fries which were all delicious. If you got make sure you've saved up some extra calories cause you can easily blow a days worth of calories on a meal here.

I can't drive through Atlanta or Athens without stopping for a bite to eat at the varsity! My favorite menu items… Grilled pimento cheese, onion rings and a frosted orange! Not a place to go if you're on a diet!

Worse good I have ever eaten. Had been looking forward to the experience for ten years but ���� Would not ever go back. The dogs were not hot in fact all of our food was cold. Save you money. Burgers yuk. Thanks but no thank. Do not get a pie either.

Ok, as a graduate of GT I know I'm biased, but I love the Varsity for what it is. Decent food with a charm and character that is unique in Atlanta. Don't expect anything gourmet here but the chili dogs are decent, the fries and rings are appropriately greasy, the fried pies are a treat and the FOs (frozen orange - think of an orange frosty) are yummy. We used to come here and sit in the car and we enjoyed every minute of it. Now I stop by on my way to an event in the city and still enjoy the hustle and bustle on gameday, the "what'll ya haves" echoing throughout and the energy of this place. Its a definite must-visit for out of town guests.

The food is not that great to me. Greasy Onion rings, cheep hot dogs. I think it must just be the history behind the Varsity that draws everybody there. To me it's just another fast food place.

Whenever I need to take care of my grease craving, I go to the Varsity! I have two dogs, two all the way steaks, fries, rings, a peach pie & a large PC!!!!!!!!!!

Wow! What a fun place! On a recent trip, my husband and I ate there 3 times! Great chili dogs and onion rings. Very popular place!

I love their Frozen Orange in summer! Food can be very oily and greasy, a line can be long before/after GT game or any other major event in downtown. I think Varsity is a bit pricey than McDonald or Burger King. No refill for drink.
