There are several small, mainly kosher restaurants on Main Street—a couple of blocks from Queens College—offering a variety of food choices. Food options on Main Street include ethnic foods like Mexican, Chinese, Japanese, and Israeli food, as well as dairy restaurants which serve mostly sandwiches, pasta, soups, and salads. The downside is that kosher food is expensive, and there are no student discounts. Around the corner from campus in the other direction are a few other regular fast food restaurants, plus a deli. Students note that you need a car to get really good food. Additionally, students looking for fancy sit-down restaurants must travel further away.

Other restaurants off of Main Street include pizza, a fast food chicken restaurant, cafés, and delis. A number of restaurants deliver, which is convenient for students who don't have time to go out to eat. There is also a Baskin-Robbins/Dunkin' Donuts right off of campus, which is a popular place to go for students to grab a bite to eat or hang out.
