Ha! “Whaddaya have?” “Two naked dogs walking!” Yeah, you have to go to the Varsity at least once…and not a “little” one. If you are going to the “V”, then go to the “V”…the original one on North Avenue @ Ga Tech. And of course its greasy…it is hotdogs and onion rings and cheese steaks and fries and such. Legend has it a bunch of Tech guys walked up to the counter and ordered 200 hotdogs for a party and the counter guy didn’t blink…just yelled the order over his shoulder and asked if they wanted “fries or rings with that”…you gotta love it Be careful though…there are 6 dining rooms and the TVs are dedicated to a specific channel…don’t end up in the FOX News room or you really might get sick. We go about once every 6 months or so just for the heck of it or when our teenage nephews come to town. Its a trip in itself! Disclaimer: I wouldn’t make a steady diet of it :eek:
For some good moderate restaurants Virginia Highlands is good; Atkins Park Deli, Murphy’s, Ma Li’s (Thai), Paulo’s (Italian Ice…yum)
For a really great hamburger, the Vortex on Peachtree is fun, its a block or so down from the Fox Theatre; Tamarind on 14th Street is really good Thai.
Midtown (East of Peachtree) you have Einstein’s, Joe’s on Juniper, Nickimoto’s (sushi) all good. Also Zocalo in that area is really good.
Dignan, I’m trying to think of the diner you are referring to but the only diner like you describe I can think of on Peachtree is Johnny Rockets. Sounds kind of like a discription of Buckhead Diner but that’s on Piedmont. City Diner is on Peachtree but a little further out. I’ll keep thinking.
