A tourist trap to some, a Varsity fried pie is one of my favorite sugary indulgences in the city

Nothing better than a naked dog and greasy rings; skip the drive up and go inside for the full experience..."what ya'll have?" Great for kids and super cheap!

Bad Food- Great Atmosphere – I go every time I am in town. The food is actually quie bad. The famed hot dogs are just boiled hot dogs on a steamed soggy bun. Those who claim the food is good are delusional or have never eaten a decent hot dog. The atmosphere is what makes going to the varsity worth while. Just people watching is worth the price of the bad food.

Greasy Food – I'm not sure which way to lean on it, on one hand there is a great atmosphere because you have the blend of different types of people that come here. Everyone from college kids to working professionals. On the other hand the food is really greasy, any the people could use a little more customer service training. The food tastes really good though, and even though I know its not good for me, I find myself craving The Varsity ever so often.

Cool service – My brother and I visited this restaurant and the food they served us was good. Yes, it was greasy, but it tasted good. It was truly mouth watering. The wait staff was so cool and the ambiance was indeed full of life. We had an enjoyable time while finishing up our meal.

wonderful greasy food – Not exactly health food, but you don't go here for that. Hot and greasy fries and onion rings, burgers and hotdogs...just thinking about it is making my mouth water.

Great Place and good food – We ate at The Varsity twice while we were in Atlanta for our mini vacation. We ate here after seeing The Varsity on the Travel channel for their hotdogs.

Me and my fiancé wanted to try the hotdogs and hamburger so we got the Braves special with 2 hotdogs, fries and a drink and got a cheesburger too. We split the cheesburger and each got a hotdog. Both were REALLY good. The fries weren't the best, they were soft and greasy. We also got an order of onion rings and they were GREAT!.

We would def. eat here again the next time we go to or travel through Atlanta.

Oh, and they have tons of seating and parking, so there is no problem finding a spark to park or a seat to eat ate.

"Whaddya Have, Whaddya Have??" – Seriously, does this place even need to have reviews?? The Varsity is a staple of Atlanta with it's greasy food, hot chili dogs, crispy onion rings, and much more to fill you up! "Whaddya Have?" is what you will hear as soon as you enter into this restaurant. With its upbeat and loud employees, The Varsity is a great place to go before any sports game in Atlanta! It is packed before Falcons games and Braves game and is also the late night spot of choice for those Braves stragglers that had too much fun the Bud Zone at the game! If you visit Atlanta, this is a place you MUST try!

Atlanta's iconic drive-in is a must-try experience. – In Short
Lodged on the corner of North and Spring, "the V" is Atlanta's drive-in tradition, with colorful car hops and game-day grub. Chili dogs, rings and fries are good .... as in greasy-good, so don’t even think about ordering something light. They have a cool language only they use (FO--frosted orange, bag o rags--chips) and a clientele that has no boundaries. So grab a dog, sit in the CNN room between a preacher and a prostitute, and embrace everything right about Atlanta's legendary bad-for-you food stand.

I know this might sound crazy but The Varsity has the best Egg Salad sandwich in town.

Love the fried peach and apple pie.
