The Varsity AthensThe Varsity has been serving our world famous chilidogs in Athens for 74 years. First at 101 College Avenue in downtown Athens and later at the Varsity located at Milledge and Broad Street. The downtown location, opened in 1932, was across from the University of Georgia. For 40 years The Varsity at 101 College Avenue in downtown Athens was a vital part of the Athens scene, until Mr. Gordy made the decision to close the location and concentrate on his new Athens location which he opened in 1963.

The Varsity Athens is running strong as ever. A recent remodeling has given the 37 year-old store a fresh look.

The Varsity Athens offers paid daily Gameday parking only. There will be no RV parking this year.

For information about gameday parking, please contact us.
