Atlanta Day 1: Dinner at The Varsity

Ben planned to bring me to a BBQ dinner. Unfortunately, that restaurant was full. On top of that, there was no parking at all.


So, Ben changed to plan B and brought me to a popular fast food joint in Atlanta. It was Varsity. It’s a drive-in with indoor seating available too.


We opted to dine in. It was a big restaurant. You can see that from the size of the ordering counters.


We ordered a few items to share. Among them were chili dog, chili burger, onion ring, etc.


Their specialty is chili with hot dog or burger. The chili makes the burger very moist.


We also had a slaw dog to try; something different from the regular hot dog. It was a lighter combination and I quite like this one.


For dessert, we shared a peach pie. It was deep fried.


The pastry was very thin and loaded with sweet peachy filing.


The drink of our choice was orange crush as it was promoted in-store.

Our bill came to USD12.75.

    Well, that place helps explain the obesity problem in the US. They could rival the Heart Attack Cafe in Las Vegas.

    Whoa, Chow Times was that close to me?? I live on the Georgia Tech campus in those brick buildings on the left in the first photo! That’s so neat! I love reading about your foodie adventures so much! ^^ It makes me hope to travel to those places in the future! 😀

    The 2 things I noted the first time I went to Atlanta were Waffle House restaurants every where and Winn Dixie grocery stores.

    I thing the more interesting restaurants were out in Buckhead. Lulus Shrimp Shack was good but that was quite a long time ago.

    We had some great meals in Atlanta on a business/family trip quite a few years ago. The Coca-Cola museum was interesting- they had a tasting room with samples of all the beverages they are licensed to sell in other countries, many of which were local cultural specialties. Many were just plain strange tasting!
    Agree that Buckhead had some good restaurants. We very much enjoyed the city. Also a good zoo.
