I took the kids here for a legit Atlanta dining experience. The service sucks, you better know what you want because the lines are long. The food is slightly better than average but you don't leave hungry. It's worth the trip for the peach pie...More

Seriously, if you are in Atlanta, you have to eat at the Varsity at least one, I think it's a law or something. Really though, if you've never been, you have to go. It's good!

This is an Atlanta institution and I have been going here since I was a child . You have to go at least once for what Atlantans call your oil and lube job. I have never been a fan of the burgers. They are mediocre....More

I went to Ga Tech and while this place has changed a lot, in many ways it has not. What'll you have, what'll you have. Two chilli slaw dogs and a bag of rings.

Went here with my husband and the food was great! I had the dressing, fried chicken and mac and cheese, everything was wonderful and they didn't take long to bring the food either. The waiter was super nice and food was priced reasonable as well.

This place has been around for quite some time and has become a tourist destination. If you've never had it before, you have to try it at least once. I recommend the combo deals as they're easier to order- know your order before getting to...More

Stick to the hotdog for a quick snack. I usually order 2, one chilidog and one slawdog. Whata have is legendary. Avoid noon. Too many people. You will enjoy the experience better.
