Varsity Jr Closes Today.

What'll ya have before the Varsity Jr. closes its doors?
Sunday will be the last day to enjoy chili dogs and onion rings at the Lindbergh Drive location, according to the iconic Atlanta restaurant chain.

After 45 years, the Varsity Jr. will close due to an inability to meet zoning requirements with the City of Atlanta. Restaurant owners had hoped to build a new facility, complete with indoor restrooms.

"This has been one of the hardest decisions the Varsity family has had to make in our 82 years of operation," the restaurant's website states.

Employee Kelly Bibbs told the AJC she's worked at the Varsity Jr. for six years and now will move to the Varsity Gwinnett location. But it won't be the same, she said.
