One of the many great things about being a Tar is the sheer number of meal options we have, from the Campus Center to Park Avenue and beyond. Whether you are a vegan or a full-on carnivore, you are sure to find amazing food all around campus.
Unfortunately, students are limited in the restaurants where they are permitted to use their R-Cards to purchase meals. Those places currently include Park Ave Pizza, Domino’s Pizza, Pi-Hole Pizza, Jimmy John’s, A’s Sweet Treats, and The Coop. But what dining options Tars would like to see added to this list?
Located just outside of campus, this stylish and environmentally-conscious restaurant is a favorite amongst Tars. Some of the meals offered include grass-fed beef burgers, hot dogs, and an assortment of drinks. With great food and easy accessibility, this seems to be the highest on Tars’ list for off-campus dining.
2. Panera Bread
This excellent bakery/café serves up all kinds of healthy and delicious meals from soups to sandwiches. It is a relaxing environment, and free WiFi also make it a great place to study.
3. Pita Pit
The Pita Pit is another off-campus dining service that offers delicious and nutritious meals. The best part is that it is open until 3 a.m. on most nights and never closes before midnight (so it is a nice option for anyone who finds themselves pulling an all-nighter).
Vegan and even vegetarian Tars cannot get enough of this relaxed loft-like restaurant which serves high-quality meals, all of which are completely vegan (though you will not really be able to tell the difference). Students enjoy Ethos’ versatile menu for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Its location, which is just around the corner, also helps make Ethos a hotspot for students.
Tars love Moe’s for its delicious Mexican meal options and friendly services. In fact, some are willing to trek the mile distance from campus just to eat here.
