The Varsity in downtown Atlanta is our original, world famous location. This enormous restaurant sits on 2 city blocks and can accommodate 800 diners inside. Opened in 1928, this store quickly gained the reputation of being "the world's largest drive in". At The Varsity Atlanta we are dedicated to living up to our slogan "The FUN place to eat!" In Georgia, The Varsity is a family tradition, no trip to Atlanta is complete without a chili dog, order of rings and a Frosted Orange!
