You can go inside the storied Varsity in Atlanta, but why would you when the friendly carhop wants to chat you up while taking your order? This place is a classic — the original opened in 1928. The Varsity claims their downtown joint is the world's largest drive-in. With two acres of space that "can accomodate 600 cars and over 800 people inside," it's hard to argue. They say when the Yellowjackets play at home, more than 30,000 people visit.
There are beautiful, brown, thick-cut, juicy onion rings with great crispy yet pliable, fall-away exteriors. The chocolate shake is kind of icy, really good if you like gelato. And the chili cheese slaw dog is juicy, and covered with fine chili and finely diced slaw. Time to perch that tray on the window and lay out a banquet of fast food on the dashboard.
