This place is one of the best places that serves burgers that I have ever been too. Their chilli sauce add a special taste to their beef burger! Will be back!

The Varsity serves hot dogs in a variety of ways and the burgers are not bad either. It's usually a zoo at the counter so know what you want from the huge menu above the counter and be ready to order. Not exactly the best...More

I guess if you grew up with the food it might be something you crave but from an outsider it was nothing special. More bread than dog and there was so little chili on it I thought it was ketchup. "What'll you have " was...More

Love this place and food! Only drawback now is it's pricey. Be sure to look at old Atlanta pics and if not too hot outside do the drive up and the orange frosty. Great hotdogs, big serving of fries and lots of fresh onions. "...More

When in Rome.....or Atlanta it's a must see. The food is what it is, greasy pig out food but the atmosphere and nostalgia are a must do when in Atlanta.

I'll be honest, the first time I moved here 12 years ago it was one of the first places that I went to. Not because the food is fantastic but because it is a staple here in Atlanta. It's just something that brings you to...More

Went here before the Atlanta United game. This place is an Atlanta tradition! Staff were amazing, even with the huge game crowd. Bacon cheeseburgers and hot dogs were delicious and onion rings are the best!!

My daughter's 8th grade class is going to The Varsity as part of a field trip to Atlanta. She has celiac disease and I was wondering if there are any gluten free options for her while her classmates eat at your establishment.

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
