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 recently visited BLT for brunch and it was not the best experience. Our server was not in the best mood and seemed to be quite annoyed. The restaurant was pretty much empty as there was only 1 other table and they were already done with their meal. Although the restaurant was empty we waited 30 mins before our food arrived. Unfortunately my food was not hot at all. The BLT popover was served with home fries and what was supposed to be field greens but instead it was iceberg lettuce which was brown. I asked the server prior to ordering if the dish came with home fries and he said no which was the reason I ordered the hand cut fries which were $9 by the way. Once he brought the food to the table he said "oh yea your popover came with home fries...your welcome". I was stunned to say the least. I mentioned to him that he seems to have an attitude and he proceeded to say "that is just his personality". Considering the extravagant prices for brunch I expected service and food to be better.
I drove by this place for the longest but never thought twice about it until a friend that lives nearby raved about it the other day. I decided to meet up with her and finally check it out. And I'm so glad I did.I ordered the Lil Clucker with a side of wedge fries. Oh so good!! The menu described the chicken sausage, eggs, and cheddar cheese being served on a soft bun. I was a bit skeptical about the bun actually being soft--that is, until I took the first bite. The little slider sized buns were indeed soft. The chicken sausage tasted great with the eggs and cheese. And the fries were seasoned well.I just wish I tried the red velvet cupcake shake while I was there. But maybe it's a good thing I didn't. I don't know what I'd do if I became obsessed. Even the service was great.I won't be driving past this place without a second thought ever again.
The first time I ever tried this wonderful bird I was in Memphis Tn. I enjoyed it so much that I went a second time before heading back home. The sad part about this whole story is that I would have to go back to Tennessee to enjoy this meal again. One day I decided to go on their website to search for other locations and at that moment my life changed. I learned that they were opening a new location in Atlanta Ga. This was the best news and I could not wait. I didn't make it the first day , but day two... I was there and it was just as amazing as before. When it comes to chicken my list looks like this......MomMinePopeyes PublixI now have to add them to the list.
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.
The chicken sausages are tasty and the overall concept is very creative for a low price! Please mind the slingers are very filling and you'll probably need a two hour nap after you're finished. I love the baby cakes! They are sweet potato pancakes and they're delish! I wasn't a fan that there was limited indoor seating and the cashier could've been a lot friendlier but the food was legit!
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.
DELICIOUS food. I'm a vegetarian so I'm used to going into a restaurant and ordering side dishes. Here they have a vegetarian alternative to their sluggers, sliders, AND they have vegan chilli. Got their version of a spicy (vegan) chilli dog, it was all kinds of amazing on all kinds of levels. Plus their cake shakes are the bomb.
