It was a local favorite but the owner retired with in the last few weeks. There is a sign outside the restaurant saying "Restaurant has been sold, Thanks for the memories." I'll post about the new place when it opens.

The Varsity is a wonderful journey back to an original 50s diner that has served the college community for many years. Not hip, not glitzy, just good food, served up by women who know what real service used to be like from a basic American...More

Neat old style diner place. We were by for breakfast. Price was really good for the portion. Food was okay.

This place was good and simple, which is a good thing. Great prices for their food which was well cooked. My wife had the grits and eggs while I had the French toast and bacon. Both meals were very good.

Looked like a dump inside. Decor consisted of peeling paint and ripped seat cushions. My wife had turkey and dressing which she said was pretty good. For vegetables she had cooked carrots (dry, cold, inedible) and candied yams (covered in a watery sauce). I had...More

No wonder the Varsity has been around "forever". While I have heard good things about their lunch and dinner, I can vouch for the breakfast there...and have never been disappointed. Fresh ingredients, grits cooked perfectly, and special requests cheerfully honored. Add reasonable prices and never...More
