Varsity serves a terrific BBQ sandwich. Better than the other area barbecue restaurants (you know who you are). Large portion. Hot and fresh. With several homemade sauces to choose from. Try their hot dogs, wings, and hamburgers. Also, try the Brunswick stew (when in season). Ice tea is excellent. Family run. Friendly service. Desert is right across the way at... More

We went with our 2 young children and the waitress was super accommodating and friendly with them which always helps. Good barbecue with amazing fountain Cheerwine and crushed ice! Helps that the Party House is connected for a sweet treat before you leave!

Choose the Deluxe Burger for a good hand pattied burger! The others on the menu do not taste as good as this one. We are addicted to the Grilled Chicken Bacon Swiss Sandwich! The fish and fish sandwich are AWESOME! If you don't want fries, there is a variety of sides to choose from...cakes in the bakery rock, also!

The foot long hot dog special on Saturday's is a family favorite. Great burgers and onion rings as well. Great locally owned establishment with good service.

this is a great little place to have lunch or dinner. The variety of food is great. Burgers, baked chicken, fish, BLT and so on. Plus it is attached to a delicious bakery! If you are in the area, you've got to pull into the Varsity!

Last Summer (this review is very late), I had lunch at this local family owned restaurant by chance. I was picking up a birthday cake for my daughter at the bakery that shares the building space. I planned to grab the cake and head out but when I got back to my car, it wouldn't start. While I waited on... More

If you like meatloaf, then you will love the meatloaf from Varsity. They have it on the menu every Wednesday. Come with a healthy appetite, because you get a very big serving. Do not wait too long, because they do sell out fast.

This is a home-owned restaurant. The folks are friendly. The food is consistently great - and huge portions. Fast service. They have a drive-through for pick-ups. We eat in, and take out. Every family gathering - our kids, who live out of town, love the food from this place. Our favorite barbecue spot in the area. Great cakes as well,... More
