3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It's pretty good but depends on your tastes I guess.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Boston is a bubble, but its very cosmopolitan and with the hundreds of thousands of students flying into boston from around the globe their interests are well represented if you search hard enough. Boston is expensive and I can think of more than two dozen places in boston which can cost easily over $200 per head - but there are plenty of places you can eat well for under $10, there is a huge variety.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The availability is certainly there and the convenience as well, but the cost is certainly a draw back.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of good restaurants in the area, all very convenient to campus. Mostly non-chain restaurants.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: We're in the city! Endless options for all! Head down to chinatown, or get italian on the north end!

In the city of Boston, there are several options for food and plenty of good restaurants at which to dine. The area surrounding Northeastern can be a little pricey, but it is possible to get a good meal for a cheap price. The most popular off-campus eateries around Northeastern are BHOP (Boston House of Pizza) and Cappy's. At both locations, you can find all kinds of subs, calzones, salads, and, of course, great pizza. Cappy's is known for its enormous slices of pizza that are especially great after a night out. Au Bon Pain is located in the Marino Center, and Qdoba is right across the street.

One of the busiest off-campus eateries is Espresso Royale, which has all your breakfast needs and one-of-a-kind gourmet sandwiches. Panera Bread just recently opened up across the street and has become a very popular place to grab lunch. There are also great restaurants located down by the Prudential Center, on Boylston Street, and even along Huntington Avenue. Whatever your preference, you shouldn't have trouble finding good food around Northeastern. If you want to venture farther away from campus, you could always head to Chinatown for some cheap dim sum or head to the North End for incredible pastries and Italian favorites.
