The Varsity is quite the institution in Atlanta. Every visit is an experience! The portions of onion rings and fries are massive and yummy. Try the Frozen Orange for an extra treat!

If you are visiting Atlanta for the first time, The Varsity is a must! It's fast food at it's best. Now don't expect anything fancy, no need to get all dressed up. Just go with a hungry belly and possibly an antacid! But it's worth it. My recommendations are the Onion Rings, Chili Slaw Dog topped off with a Varsity Orange. ENJOY!

When I was in high school in Atlanta (go NF bulldogs!) from 1957-1962, my friends and I were at the Varsity every Friday night, and sometimes on Saturdays too! The greatest place in the world for onion rings, hot dogs, french fries , a PC or a Frosted O. But the BEST was meeting the boys (swarms of them) from Tech. Even now, the food tastes exactly the same. Not sure how they do it, but it's gooooooood. Hey, and I remember a time when women were not allowed to go inside..only order from the car! And sure, I remember the carhop "Flossie Mae." A great American institution!

The Varsity is an Atlanta tradition from generations to generations. The service is just that a service in a fast food and a quick pace environment. Rather you want a naked dawg walking or salad, you must go to this Atlanta lndmark.

From the moment you walk in the doors, you'll notice several things. First, the lines are ALWAYS long, regardless of what time of the day you go and worst when there is a special event nearby. Secondly, the bulletin boards as you come in the front door showcase the numerous celebrities, including Presidents that have eaten there. Next, you're bound to recognize the rudeness of the wait staff taking

Everytime we would pass by, my husband would tell us how he used to go and that it was the spot when he was younger.

He finally took us and we eally enjoyed it.

The kids had chicken strips with honey mustard and fries. I had the grill chicken and tuna salad on the side. Great food.

Service was fast, despite the long lines they have.

Youcan also order outside from your car... now where else an you do that today besides sonic?

By being in Atlanta this place is always full but just being apart of the experience is worth the wait in line. The wings are good, the service is good, and although I've never had the hot dogs I will one day before I day.

Don't let the 1,000 people in line in front of you fool you, fast food fast is coming your way. Try the chili dogs with slaw (my favorite) with a huge order of greasy onion rings. This food is not for the queasy of stomach, as I need an antacid just to walk in the place, but the food is just as advertised. Many traditions surround the biggest fast food restaurant in the world, many involving the huge campus next door at Ga. Tech. Make sure you know what you want to order before you step up: What'll ya have?

PROS: fast food fast
CONS: indigestion level high

The Varsity is an Atlanta institution. If you are here visiting, you have to go to this diner, especially since it is the largest drive-in in the country. The chili burgers and onion rings are greasy, but the Frosty is simply amazing. I highly recommend running a few miles after eating here!

PROS: Great food
CONS: Unhealthy

Cause after a certain age, one of these meals will kill you, haha. Seriously, though, this place has great hot dogs and onion rings. It's old-fashioned, has long lines during lunch, but the food is oh-so-good while you're eating it. Just be wary of the greasy feeling you get afterwards.

This place has been around forever.

The Varsity has been in Atlanta since 1928. You must eat there if you visit Atlanta. The food is greasy, but it is great... and perfect for after a Braves game or a Georgia Tech football game (Go Yellow Jackets!). This place is huge... it's a must-see in Atlanta.

PROS: good greasy food, lots of history
CONS: greasy greasy greasy food
