New to area, everyone said go to Varsity. The bun was stale, the fries limp and tasteless, the cheese unmelted, actually one of the worst meals out I have ever had. It was cheap, the employees... friendly, but I don't understand how they stay in business. I am sorry but the food was terrible.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
Varsity continues to slowly expand and this one is a little too close to my house now. A true test of my will power. Tastes as good as downtown.

pretty much the only reason i go here is to get the orange freezes. i don't like their dogs or burgers or their chili all that much. personally, i think i could make those things just as good in my own kitchen with a lot less money.
Just a fun place to be....not exactly a five star joint but if you want a buger and a fun time, hit this place up. Try a orange slush
Who wouldn't love the Varsity?! If you are an Atlanta native, this is one of your staples. If you aren't from around here...then you probably wouldn't understand. They've got really good food and it's cheap and fast. Go get a chili dog!
I have not had their burgers or other products. This location is easier for our family to get than its downtown location. Yes, their food can be greasy, but that's exactly what we expect from Varsity.
So I guess I know what a good burger tastes like. After eating there I thought about getting my car lubricated with all the grease that dripped off everything. This may be the only place I know to get a greasy Coke. Backyard Burgers may be more expensive, but the Varsity will not see my money again.
If I want the better hamburger, I will go to backyard burger next to it. Other than that, too greasy and the price is not worth. Only thing I like was the ice cream flavor they have
still worth a drive by when you are in the mood for a frosty orange.
Drove way out of our way for this wonderful food.
Don't know what exactly makes the Varsity so darn good. Guess it is the grease dripping off all the food. Can't beat the chili dog and onion rings. It's a good thing they aren't too close to my house. I always have fond memories when eating at the Varsity. Reminds me of eating in Athens before the UGA games or downtown before the Tech games. Those were the days!!!
I cannot compare it to anything else since it is an original. If you have ever had a "Grezzy V" craving then you know what I mean. If you have a hangover I recommend 2 hamburgers, fries and a sweat tee. :)
its the varsity, uh its the best fastfood anywhere, anytime...period - chili cheeseburger with pimento cheese is the only way to go. Always order fries and onion rings - and share.
I like the lodge atmosphere, and it is my favorite place for brunch in the area. MMMmmmmm OOPS_ I was trying to leave a review for the VILLAGE TAVERN!
I have lived in Atlanta all my life and the only reason as a child that my family went downtown was to go to the Varsity. And in my opinion still the best burger joint in town.
