Unfortunately Drive-Thru only due to covid restrictions. Having been to the main varsity location near the aquarium before, I was disappointed that it was closed inside and that is half the experience when eating at the varsity. The next disappointment was the quality of the...food it just wasn't great. It just doesn't taste the same. Not having the electric atmosphere of the signature location really hurts the overall experience. the food was just standard fast food fare extra greasy and just disappointing.More

The Atlanta locations vary... the hype is for the main location (which we did not visit). Food is basically Sonic - hot dogs, hamburgers, BLTs. This is a local favorite for the ambience, the prices, and the amount of food you're given. No complaints but...the dates we visited it was Drive Thru Only (COVID restrictions) so that impacts my review. I did expect a larger menu - what they served though lives up to the name - exactly what you'd get at a football game and tasty as well.More

went to the drive thru for lunch. person taking order was hard to understand and gave me the wrong items when she repeated what I wanted. Finally she advised me to drive to the window. the receipt showed the correct items but when I got...my hamburger it had mustard, ketchup and pickles on it, all the things I did not order and really dislike anywhere on my food. Listening is key to good service and they have the wrong person taking orders.More

Took someone who had never been to the Varsity - looking forward to it - and it was not up to par. Staff very underwhelming and unenthusiastic. Not greeted with a peppy "Whatta ya have....". Chili dog burned - onion rings excellent. Cleanliness OK in...dining room - bathroom not stocked, but clean. Very empty - nothing special, which was a disappointment.More

Good food and even better parking setup. We ordered a little bit of everything and there was nothing we didn't like.

If you have never been to the Varsity and you live in Georgia, something is wrong. Both locations are amazing, here in Gwinnett and in Atlanta. I just happened to move near this location and I pass by everyday to and from work. You have...to eat the onion rings and the chili cheese hamburger. Growing up I always had swiss cheese, but my mom started me eating the burger with pimento cheese. DONT KNOCK IT TIL YOU TRY IT!!!More

This one doesn’t quite have the historical mystique of the downtown location, but it’s much easier to get in and out of! Enjoyed the burger, chili dog and fries, which were plenty to share with my wife. Varsity orange is good. Frosted orange is even...better in the summer heat. Love the fried pies! The sweet potato seasonal one is out of sight in my book! I also enjoy the peach-flavored sweet tea option they offer! Plenty of parking. Real close to 85.More

On Friday my wife and I were traveling through Norcross and decided to have lunch. Being this close, we could not pass up an opportunity to eat at The Varsity. We arrived just before noon and when we entered we were greeted with their iconic...catch phrase What'll ya have? Well what we had were several of their World Famous Chili Dogs & fries. We received our food quickly and it was delivered hot and fresh. Their food is definitely one of a kind. Nothing compares to it. The employees we encountered were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our food and will definitely return when we are in the area. Located at 6045 Dawson Avenue just off Interstate 85 in Gwinnett County. Picnic tables in an outside seating area that is dog friendly. A drive-thru for your convenience. Catering available; Open daily; Plenty of parking.More

Not really what I expected. The atmosphere was great but the food left much to be desired. I'll give the downtown location a shot.

I do not eat hotdogs at home nor any other place except for the varsity. Good good hotdogs and good fries and then Coke always taste good on the type of ice that they have.

And this ain’t it. The real McCoy and best of the group is the original on north avenue. This ones close though and the better of the other satellites. The vibe is right here. A glorified chili cheese steak run through the garden is good...for the soul. Two chili dogs will cure what ails you even if your stomach has to sacrifice. All the varsity restaurants make sure you re-experience the meal about 3 hours after finishing it. They do a good job on rings and fries here. The frosted oranges are legit too.More
