    Mediocre food (to put it nicely), and the WORST service I've ever experienced. It's sad that THIS of all places is known as the iconic place to go in Atlanta.

    Great spot for after the Dragon Con parade this year. The chili-cheese dog is my favorite. Don't think I have ever bothered to try a hamburger here

    It may be a bit of a tourist trap — OK, a lot of a tourist trap — but The Varsity still serves the most famous hot dog in Atlanta. Get the chili cheese dog. Read more

    Atlanta’s famed drive-in is like a time capsule. Come here for a chili-cheese dog, a frosted orange shake and a side of steaming hot fries--all for under ten bucks. Read more

    Chili cheese slaw dog! It's worth every calorie. The slaw was not too dry, not too wet. Stop thru on your road trip.

    Chili cheese dog is the taste of growing up in the South. Cherry coke and peach tea do not get refills, so be aware of how thirsty you are when you order. Allow for extra time to order. Always crowded

    Had the chili dog, onion rings, nuggets and a bacon double burger with a frozen FO. FO is like a orangesicle slush and yummy. Everything else including the chili dog was average. Cool place though 3/5

    The amazing thing is the following. This Restaurants food quality is horrible. It's more of a nostalgic place if anything. So somebody must know a lot of people that support the name.

    The hot dogs were okay. Nothing special about them and the chili wasn't very god. The onion rings were good though.

    Definitely not good for you but it's much better if you split 1 combo between 2 people. It was enough food for me and my wife and we didn't feel too bad afterwards. LOL
