The Varsity was founded by Georgia Tech alumnus Frank Gordy in 1928 on North Avenue. Waffle House was founded by Joe Rogers Sr. and Tom Forkner and opened in Avondale Estates in 1955. Truett Cathy opened the first Chick-Fil-A in Greenbriar Shopping Center in 1967 and American Deli was opened in 1989 in South Dekalb Mall.
Almost instantly, Twitter users began weighing in.
Soon, confusion emerged over what American Deli was among some users.
By midday, American Deli and The Varsity were the No. 1 and 2 trending topics in Atlanta respectively.
And several resumed the long running debate over whether or not the Atlanta staple some locals refer to as The Greasy V is worth keeping in the running.
