4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Fast Food restaurants are cool, but sometimes you just want to dine with your Spartan Card.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: If you get tired of dining on campus first choices would be the walking distance places like Mickey D's, chinese food, and the sea food place. If you don't want any of that you can catch the Tide train to downtown where you can get more variety of places to eat. The most popular of the students is Buffalo Wild Wings. Even though you can't get student discount with these places or use Spartan Bucks the cost isn't that bad.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: We need more variety and healthier choices

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The cost and availability of off-campus dining is great. There are so many
restaurants near campus for quick bite to eat or even a sit-in restaurant. I
like the fact that there is such a variety of places to choose from.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I love going the buffalo wild wings uptown because it isn't costly and its a fun Friday nights with your friends. There is also an abundance of 7-Elevens in the area do if you need something quickly, just walk across the street. The mall doesn't have outrageous prices and the movies are pretty cheap before a certain time.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Off-campus dining in the Norfolk area provides an abundance of restaurants. Most are your ordinary fast food places such as McDonald’s, Taco Bell, and Church’s Chicken. Others include Applebee’s, Red Lobster, Hooters, Uno’s, and many more. Whether students want to dine in or take out, there are a variety of options to choose from. Most students like to enjoy delivery from Chanello’s Pizza because it offers campus specials for great, affordable prices. There are great places to take your family, like Golden Corral and Olive Garden. To watch sports events like the Super Bowl, one will enjoy going to Hooters, which provides a tasty menu in addition to its fun atmosphere.

Some students may not want to travel to satisfy their taste buds. There are two Chinese takeout places, Golden City and China Moon, within walking distance from campus. If one of the Chinese restaurants doesn't offer what you want, the other takeout place is 10 minutes away on foot. Also, for late-night snacks, there is a 7-Eleven located on the corner of Park Avenue, directly across the street from campus. If students want to curb their hunger pangs, they can grab a bag of chips or cookies and be good for the night.
