    I think I had The Varsity less than 5 times including catered events the 6 years I lived in Atlanta.

    Varsity isn’t garbage it just falls victim to weird expectations. It’s a place that sells burgers and hot dogs and gives you a cool experience but for some reason people expect fine cuisine.

    It was very basic stuff which makes sense why so many ATLiens nostalgia over it so hard. I could see myself loving it as a kid then growing up and having an evergreen fondness for it

    Couldn't agree more. For a fast food place it's really good. :twocents:

    Rumor is there could be news today of a corporate expansion in Atlanta.

    EDIT: probably tomorrow

    Best mediterranean/gyro/schwarma in ATL are both in Buckhead...

    1. Pita Grille off Roswell and Wieuca -- most authentic Israeli food I've had here in the US&A. It's delicious, but overpriced for the type of establishment it is.

    2. Kebob Land -- Attached to Red Pepper near Piedmont and Peachtree. I've been in there multiple times and seen flight crews from that part of the world. They literally took a cab all the way up to Buckhead to eat there.

    Disclaimer: I've never had that style food on Buford Hwy.

    Eat there all the time as well. Not as good as Nicks but always delivers.

    Depending on the rotating menu the Consulate in midtown is solid for mediterranean cuisine.

    Mediterranea in Grant Park too.

    Aladdin's at Dunwoody Place is my go-to, and they opened a second location in Emory Village about a year ago. I know the Owner and his family well, good people and good food. I usually stick to the chicken or beef shawarma, and the fattoush and falafel are solid too.

    Maybe it's different than whatever the announcement is today, but I did hear something about them and corporate offices in Atlanta. It could be as small as they were considering adding a regional office here, but even then we could be between multiple locations. I have no idea beyond just hearing their name in association with corporate offices in Atlanta.

    Also, what I heard had no timeframe associated. I asked someone who has friends at the chamber who it could possibly be and basically copy and pasted them your message, that was their guess fwiw.
