THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Original Varsity Sports Grill Restaurant Review

: This sports bar is noted for its loaded cheese fries, which are crispy curly Q’s smothered in melted cheddar and jack cheeses, chili, bacon, green onions, jalapeños and a spot of sour cream. Try the Tex-Mex egg rolls, filled with marinated grilled chicken, black beans, a blend of several cheeses, and roasted red peppers, served with a zesty habanero sauce. People drive miles to get at the hickory smoked ribs, prepared in the St. Louis-style with more meat on the bones; just before serving, the meat is glazed in a honey barbecue sauce. The room is geared for sports enthusiasts, but welcomes youngsters with their moms, too.
