the chili dogs may bark later on, the burgers may seem skimpy but the atmosphere is always right at the varsity. wear a hat, relive your youth, get a frosted orange or a pc and kick back. the fries are just as good and the...More

I was pleasantly surprised to see this Varsity location on our trip to Dahlonega. The location was clean, plenty of seating, employees were polite and efficient, and the food was amazing. Same taste at the original!
