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.
And 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.
