    Default Varsity Sports Grill

    I really miss Varsity Sports Grill. My favorite things from their menu was their Clubhouse Club Sandwich made with TexASS Toast, the Santa Fe Burger and their homemade potato chips.

    And not to mention, their sweet iced tea with both sliced lemon and oranges ...

    It was quite the spot during the 80's, with very few other options.

    For those who don't remember it was in the now-demolished Glenbrooke East building and took the space that was originally the famous Michael's Plum... Then I believe it was a rib place after that.

    I was single and in my 20's during this time and The Varsity bar was quite the hangout as well as the T-Bar, adjacent to the old Split T.

    And that was about it for nightlife in OKC at that time. My have times changed!

    That was a good get at the time. It was out of Hollywood as I recall. First one I went to was on Rodeo Dr. Everyone was excited to have it come here.

    I do miss the Varsity. That said, OKC's burger offerings have vastly improved since then with the addition of places like S&Bs and Irma's.

    I do miss the Split T though, used to have a standing band gig there on Monday nights. Good times.

    Says a lot when I was a kid and went to the Varsity, that was as far south (63rd) as we ever went

    Haha... There wasn't anything further south.

    Midtown was completely abandoned.

    The only other "urban" area I ever saw even as a young single person was the Paseo for the old El Charrito (?) place. And we'd go to the Myriad every once in a while for a concert. That was about it.

    Varsity was where I had my first crown and coke after I turned 21. I'll always remember it for that.
