MARTA to the Varsity

The Varsity is one of the largest drive-in restaurants in the world and a classic Atlanta landmark at 61 North Avenue NW. It is a short walk away from the North Avenue MARTA station on the red and gold rail lines. Stop by to see the historic site and order hot dogs, burgers, orange drinks and more.


  1. Take a red or gold line train to the North Avenue station (transfer at Five Points to a northbound train if your starting station is on the blue or green line)
  2. Go to street level after exiting the train and look for the North Avenue/West Peachtree Street exit (avoid the Fox Theatre exit)
  3. Cross over West Peachtree Street at the stoplight (toward the church)
  4. Walk straight ahead on North Avenue for about one block or about 3 minutes
