first visit was excellent it was very fresh tasty second visit I noticed the hamburger buns. were different. not as flavorful very bland. tried with onion rings they were soaking grease. or apple pie but I got a peach pie instead? the server seems to be built around speed not accuracy. third is it went there early before lunch started hoping for freshness. alas on the hamburger meat was not fresh off the grill like I was hoping...pre cooked kinda cold. could have been left over from the day before for all I know?? tried the fries they were pre cooked set up on the counter to fill orders quickly even know there was hardly anybody there?? they were also very greasy they probably went right from the fryer to the serving tray at the pass. with no stop for grease removal.seems like the food is setup for speed not freshness. so this restaurant went from 4 stars three stars to two stars.
The Varsity is like something out of Happy Days but without the fake fifties kitsch. This is THE place in Athens to grab a burger, fries or hot dog. Slaw dogs, chili dogs and glorified bacon cheeseburgers are not healthy by any means. But it's a fun place to bring the kids (TVs showing classic cartoons) or out of town visitors when you need a grease fix.
This is one of our favorite places to visit in Athens!!! Very nice staff and nice ambiance. More mature crowd with great music/bands! The appetizers are awesome!!!! Dinners are a little pricey, but sophisticated and well plated....We enjoy simply having a few appetizers and sitting outside on the nights when entertainment is avail.
Excellent food but very pricey. Service was a bit slow. If you plan to eat lunch avoid this place at all cost. This was our first time and there were five of us. Still the food was great and we will probably go again. Us retired folks can eat anytime.
Excellent food, great Service and the atmosphere is delightful. I would highly recommend this resturant to anyone. We have eaten in D.C., N.Y, SF, Houston and many restaurants all over the world, including Singapore and Five & Ten is on par with the best.
This is my favorite steak place other than my back yard! The rolls are also super! The music is a little loud, but that is probably my age talking. My steak is always done to my request and the rolls keep on coming! The peanuts are good too! Love it!!
I love stopping by after work and grabbing my favorite meal to go, Mandy is my favorite server when I call in she knows my order. Zack is the owner if u have a problem he jumps on it to make sure you happy.
Great food. Great service. Great drinks. What more could anyone ask for?Off the beaten path so not so crowded as in downtown Athens. Worth the extra 2 minutes. And plenty of parking.
Delicious burgers for meat eaters and vegetarians, also have various fry dipping sauces. Limited seating inside but can have dogs if you sit outside
I most definitely love this place they deliver all time of night the only complaint I have is I never receive my drinks other than that great job...
