    Hey guys,

    Will be staying in Atlanta over night while heading on a hunting trip. Saw a thing on the food channel about a huge hot dog place in Atlanta and would like to try it out. Anyone have a name and address? Place was huge taking up a whole block? Any help would be appreaciated.

    Food Channel show was on The Varsity...famous landmark near Georgia Tech. Great dogs and even greater onion rings! "Whadda you have, whadda you have?" is what their oder takers shout out.

    It's on the corner of North Ave. and Spring St. Only 15 min. ride north of the airport.
    Enjoy and bring your TUMS!!

    I could get excommunicated from Ga for saying this, but the Varsity food sucks!

    I tried it 36 yrs ago, it sucked then, they opened a Varsity near me a few years ago, tried it, it still sucks.

    Cheap hot dogs, cheap buns, bad chili.

    Go there just to say you did it I guess, but not for the food. My .2

    The Varsity is only good if you're looking for really greasy hangover food, with the intent of flushing your system. There's one in Athens (better people there ;)) and I think I may have eaten there 3 times total while I was at UGA.

    The Varsity is terrible. Drive an hour south and get a NuWay!
