I've been going to The Varsity for over 40 years. The pizza is basic, good and CHEAP -- under two bucks a slice. The beer is inexpensive, too. Always worth a stop!

Stepping into the Varsity is like stepping into a time machine. The place looks, sounds, and tastes the same as it did 40 years ago. The pizza is good, the wings are good. If we want upscale dining this is NOT the place for you,...More
