3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: You've got burger king, subway and potbelly other than that you're spending an arm and a leg for lunch. Adams Morgan is nearby so you can find late night accomodations.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There is a variety of off campus dining options near the campus. These array of dining options include international restaurants to the traditional fast food chains as well as vegan options.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I don't actually frequent the restaurants near the campus. I have been to one and I am familiar with a couple of others from other parts of time and during periods of my life when I could afford to eat out. This information is what I used to rate the restaurants. At this time, since I cannot afford to eat out I usually eat from the grocery store near by, bring my lunch or eat when I get home.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Dining off campus is okay at times and reasonable

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Not to many places to choice from to get food.

The variety of restaurants in D.C. is practically limitless. Almost every country and ethnicity is represented on the menus of restaurants both close to campus and in the D.C. metro area. Popular areas to eat are Friendship Heights, U Street, Georgetown, Cleveland Park, Adams Morgan, Silver Springs, Alexandra, Georgia Avenue, and downtown D.C.

A great place to get seafood is the Maine Avenue Fish Market in SW. There are other restaurants to choose from that overlook the Potomac River. Besides the great food, dining out is nice because of the decor or the history of the establishments.
