The World’s Largest Drive-in sits on more than two acres and can accommodate 600 cars and over eight hundred people inside. On days of Georgia Tech football games up to 30,000 people visit The Varsity. It sells more than two miles of hotdogs daily, a ton of onion rings, 2500 pounds of fresh cut potatoes, 5000 homemade fried pies, and 300 gallons of chili, all of which are made from scratch daily. The downtown Varsity is also the world’s largest single outlet for Coca-Cola.
This is where the now famous cry of The Varsity started “What’ll Ya Have[?]” —The Varsity
While in Atlanta this Summer I made the requisite trek to the Varsity Drive-in and had a classic meal. Afterwards I remembered why it had been almost 50 years since my last visit.
This is all that is left of a Chili cheese dog with coleslaw.
I used the Hipstamatic app (Doris lens and Blanko Noir film combination) to take this photo.
