What’ll ya have?
Located at 61 North Avenue NW , The Varsity is legendary to the city of Atlanta. Also the largest drive-in in the 1950’s, with over 100 car hops, The Varsity has maintained its legacy for over 85 years.
Upon my arrival through the rear parking lot, I see multiple workers taking orders outside and cars coming in and out. Red hats moving fast trying to get orders made as quick as possible.Then I proceed to enter the side entrance into the restaurant. As soon as I walk through the doors I see memorabilia of the city of Atlanta:old records, posters of artist and historical figures. I see the booths, and on the tables the sport-red squeeze bottles of ketchup and race- yellow bottles of mustard. Bleach white salt shakers .
I decided to take a seat at one of these booths after ordering my food, So I could examine the place more in depth and from the perspective of a customer eating. There were cocaine white napkins on the table : and of course the sport- red ketchup and race- yellow mustard bottles . Then my food; 2 hot dogs covered in chili-red chili sauce with white diced onions on top and golden-melted cheese, all smudged into 2 perfectly brown buns. In my red “Varsity” logo’d cup; a pitch-black liquid “Coke” and over to the side sat my honey-golden fried onion rings which sat in a white “Varsity” logo’d container. From this point of view I also took notice of the televisions they had playing in the far right corner of the dinning room, in which I sat was a small black box playing the local news (CNN) . I also took notice of the floors painted as a checkerboard black and white with little flickers of granite mixed. If you look you’ll also find a red oval with the writing “The Varsity” inside it .
