Always a place you have to stop when visiting. The chillidogs and the onion rings are a must. Some have to go with the frosted orange but to me it is meh.

When we visit Atlanta we always try to eat at the varsity. The food is not gourmet by any means, but they do have good hamburgers and hotdogs. We love the french fries. The frosted orange dessert drink is wonderful.
