The Varsity Tips (3)

The Varsity

The Varsity is a famous place to visit when you are in Atlanta.

The restaurant is next to Ga Tech and was started by a tech dropout. Greasy stuff but boy is it good. You can go to the drive up in your car or you can park and go inside to sit and dine.
Order a cheesburger with pamento cheese, an onion ring a chili dog with onions on the side and a famous frozen orange for your drink.

The Varsity. Fast food joint....

The Varsity. Fast food joint. If you did not visit the varsity, you did not visit Atlanta.
This is Atlanta's oldest fast food joint. They have been serving hotdogs since the 1920s. Cheap and grease burguers, and hot dogs, fries and onion rings served with an attitude. Don't be insulted when you step up to the counter and they yell at you: ' what'll you have, what'll you have? An Atlanta institution it has served Presidents Clinton, and Bush and other celebrities. Inside several dinning rooms with tv sets so you can keep up with what's going on while you eat. Go to the varsity and get a lube job.

Get your quota of grease in

Here you'll find business men eating along side of students. Everyone is up to their elbows in chili dogs and onion rings. It is wonderful food, taken in moderation!
