My girlfriend and I came here for lunch. We started off with the layered fried green tomtoes was accompanied by soft goat cheese, minced tomatoes, and topped with a sticky balsalmic glaze. I ordered the sweet potatoe tots and the burger of the month, breaded bison buffalo burger with buffalo sauce and blue cheese crumbles. Unaware that it was breaded, and not really thrilled with the breaded burger, I asked to send it back. Our server pleasantly had it replaced with the same dressed burger (w/o breading), which had the perfect amount of sauce and cheese. My girlfriend ordered the the turkey burger and crisp fries. The restaurant was fairly busy, but our food took a very long time to get to our tables (almost an hour). My sweet potatoe tots also seemed like they had been sitting out of the heat for a while, which made them somewhat soggy. Our server was extremely nice and the assisted general manager visited our table and later took my burger off my check, which I was not expecting. The restaurant is kid friendly, has a well stocked bar, can sit a large a small group and does offer WiFi. They offer gluten free, vegetarian, entrees, sandwiches, starters, salads, soups, and specially crafted milkshakes. menu items. Their burgers consist of bison, angus beef, ground chuck, chicken, fish, turkey, and vegetables.
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.
The Varsity has been around for a long time and is an iconic restaurant in Atlanta. The orange drink and orange frosty are both great classics. I like the hot dogs and fries myself to eat. They also have an ice cream bar with tasty ice cream. The service is exceptionally fast; they have perfected the art of moving people quickly through the line so you never wait more than 2 minutes even when crowded. The various rooms have televisions playing: some news, some sports, etc which is a nice touch.
Blt is located in the W hotel and has great ambience. We popped in for brunch and were a bit disappointed overall. Its pretty pricy for brunch($9 for fries) and the dishes were just ok. The restaurant had one other table occupied and yey we waited more than 30 minutes for our entrée....which were Luke warm to cold. The waiter was also quite rude and even had the nerve to say that's just who he is. I prob won't return, definitely not worth the price.
I live in the area i have been a customer for a while food is always good and customer service is always friendly by now the owner know me by name I even given her a nickname Ma. she love it! Great place to eat on a budget. whole wings are the bomb and honey hot is great, fish sandwich is my favorite or the burger combos nice portion of food. A clean place to stop by to grab some fresh fast food.
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.
I have visited this location many times and received great food and service everytime. I appreciate the fact the it is family owned and operated. The Weekend Specials save me time on Sundays from cooking. I can always go in there and get a hot homecooked delicious meal. Try it out you will LOVE IT!
I've passed this place a good amount of times. Never knew it was there, until today I ordered the eight veggie stir fry with tofu it was delicious! Rachel was very nice and fast. Great atmosphere and decor. I have anew place! I'll be back to try many more dishes and their drinks.
Hit the spot for me on this Sunday evening. Love there chicken bowl with guacamole. I've been to this particular Chipotle multiple times and Sunday's are the best time to go. During the week or any other time whenever I try to go the traffic around the area is terrible.
I love the varsity it's real American food much only problem is because of so much Grease and slaw the buns are a little soggy but all in all great tasting food an it's fun to see that they are usually the same people who have been there 30 40 50 years
