THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Varsity Jr. Restaurant Review

: The Varsity draws a range of diners with its menu of hamburgers, toasted pimiento cheese sandwiches, hot dogs with house-made chili, onion rings and fried pies. Don't go near the barbecue sandwich, however, as it's likely to give the genre a bad name. The skin-on fried potatoes are hand-cut on the premises. The original location (61 North Ave., Midtown, 404-881-1706) is famous for its drive-in service with carhops, also available at this location, known as Varsity Jr., which has turned in more than 35 years of continuous service. Check out the lingo: ask for a bag o' rags to get a bag of potato chips. Other locations.
