“An institution....”
Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

Walking in this place takes you right back to the 1960's. It's amazing.

Just a family friendly and fun atmosphere. The cheeseburgers & chili dogs are legendary. They have spectacular onion rings. Cold coca cola.

A must stop for any fan of burger joints from the early years. The best of the best. .

A +. I will be back.

“Just like the 60s”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

We stopped by for lunch following a recent trip to Athens. The same flavors, odors and surroundings as I remembered from my college days. I will definitelly visit again for the wonderful chilli dogs, orange shakes, fries and onion rings. Don't expect fine dining: just a great old corner hot dog and burger joint on a reasonable budget. .

“New tradition”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

I have been away for a while and brought my family when we visited UGA. The food is still great. Now everyone knows what I mean when I say 'What'll ya have'. Hotdogs, burgers and onion rings are still the best. Don't forget to have an orange drink.

“Great hot dogs”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

I can never get into the original Varsity in Atlanta so I jumped at the chance to try the one in Athens. Best hot dogs I've ever tasted. You will love it
