There are many options available to students who want to eat off campus, from chain restaurants to privately-owned, intimate dining experiences. The different styles and types of food off campus suit almost every taste. There are also several options of every variety of food, with prices and quality being very good.
While there are many old standbys, such as Macado's and Sonic, new restaurants are constantly springing up in Radford. Sal's Italian Restaurant and Pizza has been a favorite for students to take a date and has been voted the No. 1 Italian restaurant in the New River Valley. Most restaurants in the area are within walking distance from campus, usually less than a mile. Others—such as Sonic, Sal's, and Hank's—are a bit farther, but easily accessible if you have time for a long walk, a bike ride, or a quick car trip. Prices are very reasonable, and often a student can spend less then $10 on a very satisfying meal.
