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.
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.
Being new to Atlanta I've been told of how great the Varsity was , but when I tried them it wasn't what I thought it would be. Now don't get me wrong the hot dogs weren't bad , but from the talk of the town.... I thought they would be better. I had a slaw dog and a chili dog. The chili dog was a little over priced if you asked me . The team moved the line quickly, but I wouldn't say that they gave me Chick-fil-a type customer service ( best customer service at a fast food restaurant). I hear that back in the day it was better ,so try it for yourself and then you be the judge.
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.
As with all Cookout restaurants, the food is good and the price great. This one, which has only been open two months, started strong and hasn't stopped. Minimal mistakes. If any, they are handled immediately and to the advantage of the customer. Great customer service, great speed, great quality, and all this from day one. I go multiple times a week and will continue to do so. Don't overlook anything on the menu. Good job.
I went to Mardis Gras for a birthday celebration with a few friends. The girls are flirty and nice and very approachable. The drinks are strong and good. I had a few table dances and really had an awesome time. You need to go for the experience. The ladies were beautiful.. there's a variety of ethinicities which keeps it interesting and conversations flowing... there are Poles! No Snooty tramps here. Had a blast.
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.
