When we visit Atlanta we always try to eat at the varsity. The food is not gourmet by any means, but they do have good hamburgers and hotdogs. We love the french fries. The frosted orange dessert drink is wonderful.

Tons of folks recommended this place, so we decided to give it a try. It is delicious fast food. If you're looking for health food, this isn't your place. The portions were giant and the prices were incredibly reasonable.

To be honest, and not trying to be a wise guy, The Varsity is not the place for folks with dietary restrictions. Probably the only healthy item in the building is ice berg lettuce. Varsity is where one goes "off the healthy... More
