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.
We stopped by after an early flight into Atlanta at approx. 10am. The open sign was on but the door was locked. We called twice just to make sure no one was in the restaurant and there was still no answer. I guess we'll continue going to the other location, at least they're open the hours listed.
Came at 11:00 am and they were closed. The open sign was on and it says 24 hours but chairs were up on the tables and all lights were off.
When restaurants don't have someone seeking fluent English or have an idea how to work a system; there's usually problems. Waited over 45 minutes for food and the order was still incorrect. Wouldn't recommend going there; especially on a Sunday. The service is awful!
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.
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 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.
LOVE this place! Their Pho is so delicious! Their prices are really great too. Every time i go here the customer service is always great, even when they're busy. I definitely recommend. You probably should take Uber because parking is limited.
The food is good and since I've never had the original I hear it's just as good if not better. They do take a long time to prepare your order. I ordered on the phone and still waited an additional twenty minutes after I got there
They always have my food prepared correctly and it's always made fresh to order. The staff is efficient and kind.
