4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of great restaurants in Rome, many of which offer discounts to Berry students.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I usually eat off campus because the dining hall isn't great. There are several delicious Mexican restaurants that are affordable as well as classic fast food options.

Off-Campus Dining: Rome is a decently sized city with average restaurants. Unless you're extremely picky or hard to please, you won't have a problem finding something to eat.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: We go out as a large group (sometimes upward of 30 people) every weekend to the local Mexican restaurant downtown. They always have the backroom by the bar reserved for college students. It is so much fun! Afterward it closes at 11 we can walk to the bars downtown.

Also, there is Moe's (a Monday favorite), Waffle House, Chick-Fil-A Dwarf House, Mellow Mushroom, and tons of others. The food business is great in Rome.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Rome, Ga., isn't considered a metropolitan area, but there is still something for everyone. Many students head down to Broad Street, Rome's historic downtown area, when they want to eat off campus. Broad Street has an eclectic feel, and a new restaurant seems to pop up every month. It is not uncommon to see professors with their families dining on a weekend night, and students enjoy this area because many of the restaurants offer discounts on already reasonably-priced food. There are options for a wide variety of people and taste buds.

Most restaurants are open for later audiences on the weekends, but because options are not as vast as in areas like Chattanooga or Atlanta, wait times in some restaurants, especially at Mellow Mushroom, can be upwards of 20 minutes. This may give students a chance to explore restaurants they may not have tried before, as most of them are within walking distance of each other. Like any other area, there are many chain restaurants around Rome, and students favor places like Applebee's for late-night drinks and gatherings with friends.
