The fried fish sandwich is basically the only item I purchase and it is worth every penny. Delicious.

Home cooked quality, low prices and a Family atmosphere are all available at the Varsity. The Rib Special over the weekend is the best in our areas. It is a bit layed back and one may have to wait for a seat but all in all, it is well worth it. The Bakery good are also well worth it. Great... More

Asked a friend where to go for a good burger. Really, really good. I had the deluxe that had cheese inside the burger. Really, really good! Fries were good too. Meal was $6.79 plus drink. Service very good and friendly. There is also a bakery that looked really, really good too! I'll be back soon!

First time at the Varsity, it was quite a shock. I had heard some good things about this restaurant/bakery, and thought we would give it a try. The service is very slow to begin with. I had the chicken tenders, they were way too spicy, they left an odd taste in my mouth the rest of the night. I also... More

I got their chopped barbeque, and it was really good. My daughter got their barbeque chicken and raved about how wonderful it was. Be prepared to eat, because you get alot of food! Very friendly and attentive waitresses :) One of the waitresses even let me try their slaw made with ketchup. It was not my favorite, but she was... More

This is a local place with good BBQ with a choice of two sauces. The portion is very large and the food was delivered very quickly all 3 times I ate here. However, dont stop at just the BBQ. The seafood dinner is really good and MORE than you can eat. The meatloaf is sometimes a daily special and is... More

The best BLT's can be found here....wonderful. Also, I'll never bake again when I can stop at Party House and pick up the best pound cake ever. The cake is a must for any family event, party or vacation. If the locals (us) love it, you will too.

This is a small hole in the wall "mom & pop" bar-b-q restaurant/bakery. To their credit, they do have excellent food and the fresh bakery items ranging from cookies to full blown wedding cakes are delicious! The restaurant side main focus is Bar-b-q but they have daily specials ranging from meatloaf to the typical burger fare. They give you big... More
