I have been coming there for over 4 years. And never really compained even though the young lades that work the window have terrible attitudes. This morning the yound lady was ugly from the time she took my money, and when I got to second window found out she had my order wrong. I always order same thing sausage egg biscuit and lg vanilla ice coffee and the second young lady there has seen me and knows what I order and she never says thank you. But anyway the young lady from first window came down and tried to argue with me about the order. I also go to location near me and there the nicest, my second one was this one but not anymore. I get to work and found out from other associates I work with they hate it because of the attitudes and wrong orders and they never say thank you and come back. I worked for Mcdonlads for 5 years in 80's as breakfast manager my friends and employees were the best and all our customers knew us by name and our faces and we smiled all the time what is happening to Mcdonalds. I never usually go off and I apologize for that but I am 54 and was very disrespected. They need a class on attitudes and paying attention to what there ordering instead of talking at first window and second window and a class on good customer service. Sincerely, Marian Parrish
Ok, as a graduate of GT I know I'm biased, but I love the Varsity for what it is. Decent food with a charm and character that is unique in Atlanta. Don't expect anything gourmet here but the chili dogs are decent, the fries and rings are appropriately greasy, the fried pies are a treat and the FOs (frozen orange - think of an orange frosty) are yummy. We used to come here and sit in the car and we enjoyed every minute of it. Now I stop by on my way to an event in the city and still enjoy the hustle and bustle on gameday, the "what'll ya haves" echoing throughout and the energy of this place. Its a definite must-visit for out of town guests.
I'm so sad I didn't discover Papi's cuban sandwiches earlier. I've lived in the neighborhood forever but somehow never made it over there until this year. I was missing so much! Not only is the atmosphere fun and welcoming, but the food is really really good and affordable. I don't know how "authentic" the food is to real cuban, but whatever they put on those sandwiches is magic. (I have a feeling it involves a lot of garlic.) Their combination plates offer tons of food, enough to split between 2 people. But don't do that-- you'll want leftovers to take home with you. Highly recommended.
