4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I don't mind walking 20 minutes to get some food and midtown is right outside of campus. There are so many options around it is crazy. Some places are more expensive than others but a quick search on google will give a bunch of places in walking distance. If I wanted togo somewhere a little further away, Georgia Tech is nestle between two metro stations that got me around the neighborhood I wanted to explore. There are two pizza joints close to Georgia tech that deliver, I think it's Papa Johns that has the 50% off deal and with Dominos students can order with buzz funds which is extremely convenient.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are great places around and within walking distance. But not in really safe areas, so they aren't places you'd want to be at night.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: If you're willing to go a short distance from campus, there's nearly any type of food that you can imagine. One of the best places to check out would be Buford Highway, which has miles of every kind of ethnic food. There are so many options that you can always find something that will fulfill your needs or cravings, usually for a good price. I haven't seen many student discounts, however.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many options within walking distance from the dorms. Best sushi place 10 minutes way!

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: We have many restaurants around our school, but they are not very cheap since our campus is in midtown Atlanta.

Restaurants are plentiful off campus, but a car is a necessity, as Atlanta is not a college town and is not overly friendly to pedestrians. Buckhead, an area of Atlanta just north of campus, serves as the entertainment center of the city and holds a variety of choices for those looking for a good meal.

For lunch or just a quick meal, there is also an array of choices near campus. Willy's Mexicana Grill offers big, California-style burritos and tacos for about six to eight dollars. For those that crave Mexican fast food, there is also Moe's. Eats, a popular stop for starving Tech students, offers spaghetti, chicken, vegetables, and a slew of other foods. In addition to all this, the Howell Mill Road vicinity, just north of campus on Interstate 75, is home to all the usual fast food stops, including Taco Bell, Arby's, and Chick-fil-A, the local favorite.
