Off-Campus Dining: ASC is located in downtown Decatur. As a whole downtown Decatur was listed in the top 10 places to eat at in Atlanta. They had to make it into a collective group because of all the good restaurants located in downtown. There is a range from cheap to classy, but you can almost always find a place to fill your craving.

Off-Campus Dining: Being in downtown Decatur has its perks. I love being able to walk 5-10 minutes to a restaurant and grab a bite to eat. The food selection is pretty nice, but if you want a better selection, just ride MARTA or drive down to Atlanta, which is only 10 minutes away from the school. I wish the restaurants in downtown Decatur had more student discounts though. Chick-Fil-A and Green Ginger are the only restaurants with nice discounts.

Off-campus dining at Agnes is a cornucopia of options! Agnes is a five-minute walk to Decatur, and thus a five-minute walk to the surrounding restaurants. So, if you're a foodie looking for a great education and convenient access to food, Agnes may be the place for you! There are options that range from coffee and snacks to upscale dining in the Decatur area. The value for your buck is wonderful. Most restaurants serve large portions for the price they charge, so it's rare to feel like you've been cheated. Within walking distance from the school, you're able to find Mediterranean, Italian, Japanese, American, Mexican, Thai, and French cuisines. In addition to this variety in food, you'll be able to find Asian fusion, Latin fusion, and American fusion food, as well. There's no lack of variety in Decatur as far as food is concerned.

Vegetarian food is easy to come by. Each restaurant, unless it's a steakhouse, has some sort of vegetarian option that is not only nutritious but also delicious. Kosher options are also available in some places, but not all. As with all things, it's best to ask a restaurant about vegetarian and kosher options if you're unsure or unclear how food is prepared or what ingredients are used. All in all, Decatur is a great town for diverse dining!
