The Varsity: "The Best Grease in the South!" The Varsity Tip by MatthewMetcalfe

The Varsity, Atlanta: 18 reviews and 13 photos

The Downtown Varsity is a mecca for fast food fans. Once the meal is over you can top off the oil in your car with the grease at the bottom of your Onion Ring Bowl.

There are other Varsity restaurants around Georgia but this is the classic. It's always crowded but they move the crowds through quicker than the food will move through you (and that's fast!)

Favorite Dish: Dogs are the favorite. Chili Dogs with a squirt of mustard and a nice bowl of onion rings cannot be beat.

The other classic is the Frosted Orange. Try one and you'll swear it tastes like a baby aspirin smoothy.

The VARSITY ROCKS! But don't tell my cardiologist.
