There are more than 100 restaurants within a 20-minute walk from campus, and you’d be hard-pressed to find many students who have bad things to say about more than two or three of them. In terms of price, speed, ethnicity, formality, and clientele, there exists a nearly indescribable variety of eateries. From the famed and beloved Tombs and Wisemiller’s to the upscale Italian and French bistros on M Street, the options are staggering. Little surprise that Hoyas report one of their favorite traditions is to go out to dinner on the dime of visiting parents whenever possible.

The Georgetown neighborhood is prime for a night out, and greasy college food can be found right on Wisconsin at Five Guys or the classic Georgetown restaurant, Wingo's. It's difficult to find a Georgetown student who does not absolutely love the food options around campus.
