The Varsity: Signature Restaurant
My friend came and picked me up and took me here for lunch. The restaurant has been here since the late 20s and it is a drive-in but it also has counter service inside.
It's very tied in to the local education institutions and the local sports teams.
It's a BIG place, but the A/C wasn't on and it was a hot day.
The wait staff has a kind of cant that they speak and they have a special lingo/slang that they use (you can look on their website to see what it is).
After you order, you find a table to sit.
Favorite Dish: They have hot dogs, chili dogs, hamburger, and steak sandwiches, but they also have egg salad and tuna salad. I think I may have either had a hot dog or egg salad.
VARSITY: What to eat
The Varsity is a staple of Atlanta. It is located off Interstate 75/85 right near Downtown. The place to go before sporting events since the day it opened. The food, well it's Hot dogs and Hamburgers and pimiento cheese sandwiches. The neat thing is when you order the staff says What will you have 3 times and it kind of runs together so pay attention. I recommend the experience to everyone.
Favorite Dish: Chile cheese dog walking. That is a hot dog with Chile and cheese to go. If you want a plain hot dog so you can fix it the way you want order the naked dog
The Varsity: "What'll ya have?"
The Varsity has been an Atlanta icon since 1928 when it began as a drive-in restaurant.
Favorite Dish: I love the hot dogs, onion rings, and the frosted orange, which is like an orange creamsicle in a cup!
