San Angelo is large enough to have a very diverse amount of dining establishments. There are many choices of American, Asian, Italian, and Mexican restaurants. There are enough options to have a choice between cheaper and more expensive places for the same type of cuisine. For example, you can get a pizza at Pizza Pronto for $5–$8, or you can get one from the Cork & Pig Tavern for $11–$15. Some restaraunts, like Roadrunners or Marble Slab, offer student discounts, but sadly enough the majority do not.
San Angelo has its own local celebrity chef, Virginia Hayes Dalbeck, runner-up from Season 2 of "Hells Kitchen" with Gordon Ramsey. She is responsible for Cork & Pig and The Grill. There are quite a few other culinary masters hoving around the San Angelo area, too.
