CSUSB students shouldn’t feel limited to the food options on campus when there are many other places to eat nearby.
For students who have the option, going off campus for lunch is a nice breather from the stress of school.
Davon Meyers said, “I like going outside more than staying on campus eating, it’s more relaxing.”
If you’ve got the time, eating off campus will save you money too.
Say you’re in the mood to have a sub, most of the foot-longs at Subversions here on campus cost $7.59.
Subway offers the same quality sandwiches for as low as $5.
Another advantage of Subway is that you get more variety; they offer more toppings, types of bread and kinds of cheese. They also rarely run out of products unlike Subversions.
For places that offer more menu variety like Denny’s Fresh Express or WoW Cafe & Wingery, you can get the same quality food at the Taco Shop Mexican Grill off of Kendall.
A classic cheeseburger from Denny’s Fresh Express cost $5.49. At the Taco Shop Mexican Grill a bacon cheeseburger combo, which includes fries and a drink, costs only $4.99. They also have combination plates from $5.50 to $6.50 that are severed with rice, beans and tortillas.
If you feel that you don’t have the time to eat off campus, places like the Taco Shop Mexican Grill have a phone order option so you can call in and have the food ready for you once you get there.
Plus it’s delicious. The food came in such a large portion I was able to split the food, and the cost, with a friend.
Another option is Little Caesars which is just under a mile away, where you can get a Hot-N-Ready pizza for $5 compared to the individual pepperoni pizza at the Pizza Hut Express that cost $4.19.
You can chip in with your friends and make it a study session.
If you’re scared of losing your parking space you can have pizza delivered to you on campus.
Papa John’s charges $2.50 and Domino’s charges $3 for delivery not bad if you have a group split the cost.
I understand eating food on campus out of convenience, even if it costs more and tastes worse, but if you have the time I highly recommend checking out our surrounding eateries.
