When students get tired of the food offered on campus, there are plenty of options for off-campus dining. Many of the locations are only steps away from student dorms, while others require a short drive. The convenience of getting to some of students' favorite restaurants is very nice. Many places even deliver to campus for a small fee of about $1.25. Students feel that the value of off-campus dining is decent, and many places offer competitive student discounts. There is also enough of a variety to fit practically any budget.
There are a lot of fast food joints in Richmond, but other dining options are available, from sports bars to sit-in restaurants and romantic dining. There is also something to satisfy every taste bud, from home-cooked-style food to Mexican, Chinese, Greek, Italian, and so on. While the kosher restaurants are limited, there seems to be vegetarian and vegan menu options located at almost every restaurant. There is also a farmer's market that students can go to, as well as whole food stores. EKU typically promotes the farmer's market and schedules bus rides there for students for free.
