I've lived in Atlanta for 2 years and this past weekend was the first time I went to the Varisty. It's definitely a staple here and a must try. I had a cheeseburger, onions rings and fries which were all delicious. If you got make sure you've saved up some extra calories cause you can easily blow a days worth of calories on a meal here.



Worse good I have ever eaten. Had been looking forward to the experience for ten years but ���� Would not ever go back. The dogs were not hot in fact all of our food was cold. Save you money. Burgers yuk. Thanks but no thank. Do not get a pie either.

Editorial review from Citysearch

The burger I got had the texture and consistency of meatloaf and the bun was super thin. Hot dog I got was terrible. Overall my meal was pretty bad and the person I went with didn't like the food either.

Definitely DOES NOT live up the the hype and reputation. First visit will be my last.

Who doesn't love the Varsity

Who doesn't love the varsity. Always a home run every time I go here. Love the food, the feel of the place, everything

To quote my girlfriend when we sat down: ""Ew. Let's leave.""

I admit at first, I was worried too. It smelled like Chinese food in this place - yes, Chinese food. The waitresses were eating their lunch at the front of the restaurant when we walked in. Without standing up, one of them smiled and pointed to a table at the back.

The restaurant was empty, despite a handmade sign that said: ""Line moves quickly!"" Perhaps we mistimed our meal, showing up for breakfast at noon. Either way, the menu offers mostly breakfast foods including omelets, bacon, pancakes, and my favorite: eggs benedict.

I ordered the California eggs benedict and my girlfriend got the Crab eggs benedict. Within ten minutes our waitress delivered our meal. We were happily surprised. The plate was nicely made up. My eggs benedict had large, fresh slices of avocado and fresh grilled turkey. My girlfriend's eggs benedict had heaps of real crab meat, topped with capers.

The hollandaise sauce was buttery and rich and the eggs perfectly cooked. We noticed that my plate was garnished with a lemon wedge while my girlfriend's came with an orange slice. It was a small detail, but showed that they actually care about how they present their dishes here.

We repeatedly noted how tasty the food was, and how wrong we were to prejudge the experience.

Having said this, the place would probably have netted a higher score had the ambiance been nicer. Still, who am I - a tourist - to waltz into a place that is clearly liked by the locals and ask that place to change? If you are a tourist like me, you should be happy that a place like this exists at all. Two blocks from the Prescott Hotel on Post St. sits a great little place for breakfast.

A must visit!!!

OK Here's the REAL deal about the Varsity!

The food probably won't fill you up. The burgers are very thin, the hot dogs are small, etc. The fries are often soggy & cold. But for some reason, it just tastes good. Don't go in expecting a meaty, juice burger.. go in expecting greasy, McDonald's-esque meal and you'll be satisfied.

The atmosphere is wonderful. If you come to Atlanta, you have to visit! I've been going to the Varsity for years & years (raised here in Atlanta), and I love it. Especially before a sporting event!

Frosted Orange is a MUST HAVE. They are amazing!

The food is all very affordable. For two people, we eat for $15.
