Here in Atlanta, there is an iconic restaurant called The Varsity. One of my favorite things to get there is the chili slaw dog. I remember as a little girl going to eat there before going to see the Atlanta Braves game. It’s one of the only fast food places that still has a car hop and every kid get’s a famous Varsity hat if they want one. Here is my copycat of their hot dog chili to make a copycat of their chili slaw dog you are going to love!
When you walk into The Varsity Restaurant you are greeted at the register with “What’ll ya have? What’ll ya have” What’ll ya have?” Just to give you a taste of what I mean click this video.
They also developed their own lingo for ordering food items if you go in and order a hot dog it won’t be plain, it will have chili and mustard on it. Here’s a little video I made for you to explain:
Visiting The Varsity for someone in Atlanta is a true adventure and a rite of passage. I’ve recreated what I think is the closest you can get to the hot dog chili they use so you can make your own at home. Here is what you will need to make it, chili, mustard, my slaw recipe, buns and Bar-S franks. You might be asking why Bar-S franks? Their classic frank is the number one selling frank in the United States. They’re a great value because they cost less than most national brands.
