What'll ya have?? // The Varsity

Sorry for the silence! We've been on the go so much that we haven't had enough time to sit down and write. 

We're about to leave again. This time we're heading to Atlanta, GA for the weekend. Oh, Hotlanta... home of Coca-Cola, Gone with the Wind, MLK, the '96 Summer Olympics, the world's busiest airport, and so much more!

Atlanta's food scene is exploding with new, exciting restaurants. But, nothing can beat the city's most famous restaurant... The Varsity

The drive-in that started in 1928 is now the largest drive-in in the world! And, for good reason. There are few things that top a Varsity Hot Dog paired with an FO (a.k.a. a frosted orange shake). The restaurant reportedly makes two miles of hot dogs, a ton of onions, 2500 pounds of potatoes, 5000 fried pies, and 300 gallons of chili from scratch daily! It is the ultimate home of greasy goodness!!

When you enter The Varsity's doors you enter a world in-and-of-itself. There is a lingo that developed as the fast moving cashiers tried to speed up orders. You’ve got to be ready when you approach the cashier. As soon as you hear, “What’ll you have?” you’ve got to spout your order in The Varsity’s language. Here’s a refresher on the lingo so you can make sure you have your “order in your mind” before your next trip to The Varsity.
