Road Trip – Food Porn – Be Warned

21 Jul

20140710-082930-30570080.jpg

My mom is forever coming up with road trips for her and dad to take.  Sometimes she tells dad of her destination and other times she doesn’t.  This was one of those times she didn’t.  She told daddy, “Be ready in 15 minutes – road trip.”

Daddy got as excited as a two year going on vacation to Disney World.  He busily got ready and was in Albert waiting in 12 minutes.  I know cause I timed him – snorts.

So off they went in the Albert the Smart car, weaving in and out of downtown Atlanta traffic until they got to their destination – you got it The Varsity.  Daddy was in pig heaven.  He ❤ this place.  You know road trips have to revolve around food with those two.  Now you know where I get my food love from – snorts.

The Varsity they went to is located downtown Atlanta, Georgia.  This is the world’s largest drive-in and is very popular here in Georgia.  You are greeted as soon as you enter in the order lines with, “What’ll Ya Have?  What’ll Ya Have?”  It’s busy – especially if there is a game going on downtown.  I took this information off of their website:

“It sells more than two miles of hot dogs 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.”

That’s a lot ‘What’ll Ya Have’ my friends.  But I promised some food porn.  I didn’t forget.  I took all of these pictures from mom’s cell phone… which I might have borrowed when they got back home… and yes they brought me back some onion rings – snorts.  These pictures below are of mom and dad’s plate.  Which one do you think is which?  Mom likes her dogs with chili and mustard.  Dad prefers the works – chili, cheese and slaw.  Look good?

Oh, and you heard me mention onion rings right?  They have the BEST onion rings.  Of course, this place is not for the diet at heart – trust me on that one.  Mommy says she gains weight just by SMELLING the food.  But this below – aaww goodness piggy down.  These onion rings are the bomb!  Mom and dad brought me some back.  Heaven.  That’s what I was in – piggy heaven!  Look at those crisp delightful rings.  Drool

 You can not go to The Varsity without more fat being added to your butt dessert.  Mom and dad’s favorite is a warm fried peach pie topped with two scoops of ice cream.  Why two scoops?  Because mommy likes Turtle Track ice cream and daddy likes the Butter Pecan ice cream.  Perfect dessert to share.  See goodness below.

20140710-082925-30565836.jpgAnd was this a dad approved road trip?  You be the judge of that in this picture to the left.  Yes, that is a Varsity hat he is wearing.  I think mommy took that picture in mid chew.  Glad to know I’m not the only one that doesn’t have any privacy.

You go daddy – keep chewing.  That’s the best sign that he is a very happy man.

The next time you are in Atlanta, be sure to check out The Varsity.  I know mom and dad will be back again…and again… and again.

      Daddy says they were awesome dogs. Of course after being in the household here at the Hotel Thompson for nearly six weeks while mom has been on her DIEt, I think dad was ready to eat anything and love it. XOXO – Bacon

    you know – we hate to admit it but we don’t like hotdogs – not we doggies and certainly not Mom. Dad will have them occasionally though…..but the onion rings now we are talking – Mom’s favorite !

    OMD Bacon…. you have us DROOLING all over the keyboard…

    Did we ever tell you about the time our MOM was TRYING to drive from OHIO to Florida… and somehow MANAGED to Drive THREE TIMES AROUND ATLANTA??? YEP… she finally said… DAMN… I know I have seen that Brown Building over there ..at LEAST Twice before. BaaaaWaaah. Glad that it happened BEFORE we were ever born.
    Needless to say…. SHE will NOT be coming to Atlanta fur any of those delicious foods that you had.

      aaww dudes – the next time she travels this way, just tell her to meet up with my humans for a lunch date in Atlanta – or in the outskirts of Atlanta. It would be a hoot for sure! XOXO – Bacon
      P.S. I’ve heard that before about driving through and around Atlanta. There was once a ball player trying to get to a game to play and he drove three hours around Atlanta he was so lost – Snorts.

    My human mommy is an onion ring connoisseur (she says she wants someone to drop onion rings into her mouth when she’s on her deathbed), so you made her little heart go pitter patter with that picture of the onion rings. Thanks for putting a smile on Mommy’s face . . . without putting fat on her butt. 🙂

      Snorts. And they would probably let you my friend. There’s lots of pooches that come through the ‘drive-in’. It would be a snort of a good time if we both went together. XOXO – Bacon

    Mom has seen the Varsity on the Food Channel! She says it is on her bucket list, whatever that is.

      Snorts – It’s on my bucket list to visit in person one day. I think that would be a hoot. They have the biggest drive-in with people serving food to your car like the good ole days as mom says. I’m not sure what that means but if it involves food – count me in! XOXO – Bacon

    OMD…mom is practically hugging the computer in an attempt to get closer to those hot dogs and onion rings. She and dada fell in LOVE with chilli dogs when they visited the U.S. of A last December. Now she wants to know what flavour “turtle track” ice cream is?

      oh yum! I’ve had Turtle Track ice cream. It is delicious! It’s caramel ice cream with mini caramel filled shaped turtles. It is so good! If you make it to the Varsity, you *have* to call my mom/dad to meet you. Ya’ll could get into so much trouble – I mean fun together! XOXO – Bacon
