Students complain about the prices of most of the off-campus restaurants, but there are plenty of cheap options, as well. As is always the case, you're not going to find fancy food for low prices, but in the Village, you will find good food for good prices, as well as finer food for higher prices. If you are in the market for fast food, you will likely need a car, as the Village is a little too hoity-toity to have a McDonald's on the corner. The Village's deficiencies as per dining have a lot more to do with the general deficiencies of the Village as a college town than they do with the actual restaurants.
Considering the size of the Village, it is remarkably well stocked with restaurants, the one real concession to college life. However, due to the property taxes in the Village, most of the restaurants are somewhat pricey. There are exceptions, though, including Delhi Palace Express and Saca's. However, you may soon tire of these places and long for new palate-tickling dining options. When this happens, you will need a car or a friend with a car. Of course, you are more likely to be friends with someone with a car than they are likely to be friends with you. A friend in need is a friend indeed, and what, pray tell, do the automotively-privileged need that the rest of us can ever hope to provide?
