Had out-of-town guests this past weekend. They wanted the varsity. We ended up eating here twice. Our group loved the HOT DOGS! Hamburgers are just average. I had a pretty good grilled chicken salad. Fries are pretty good, but the ONION RINGS are out of this world. Tried the Orange Freeze for the first time. DeLish!!!

This had to be some of the worst food I have tasted in a long time. The onion rings were over-breaded and cooked in old oil. The hot dogs were bland (we found the cayenne pepper too late). The pimento grilled "cheese" dripped gallons of some sort of orange colored grease and had a few tiny little pieces of red something (it certainly didn't taste like pimento). The fries were probably the best part of the meal and they were soggy.

The people at the counter where you order were sullen. The only ray of sunshine was an older lady cleaning tables, who would not let us sit until she had thoroughly cleaned our chosen table and chairs, including cleaning the mustard spout with the rag she was using to clean up the seats and tables. We appreciated her spunk.

We have eaten at the Varsity in ATL several times so we were expecting the same in Athens (and it did not disappoint). Stopped in for a quick bite of burgers, fries, dogs & rings. It was delicious! Be sure to add coleslaw to your burger or dog. A friendly Atlanta tradition not to be missed!

There is nothing that says all American like a hot dog and onion rings from the Varsity with an ice cold coke or better yet a frosted orange, which tastes like a push up popsicles in a cup. Top it off with a fried peach pie and a scoop of ice cream and it is a classic!

Perfect for a quick family meal. My kids loved their food and the prices were great. Definitely get the onion rings!
