Great variety of food. Best hamburgers and hotdogs in town. Their barbecue is some of the best around. It's a small place so get there early. The owner is often seen talking with his customers as they dine!

Varsity serves a terrific BBQ sandwich. Better than the other area barbecue restaurants (you know who you are). Large portion. Hot and fresh. With several homemade sauces to choose from. Try their hot dogs, wings, and hamburgers. Also, try the Brunswick stew (when in season)....More

We went with our 2 young children and the waitress was super accommodating and friendly with them which always helps. Good barbecue with amazing fountain Cheerwine and crushed ice! Helps that the Party House is connected for a sweet treat before you leave!
