If on-campus fare begins to get boring (as it inevitably does), Macon has plenty of places to satisfy your appetite. Mercer Village, conveniently situated next to Mercer’s campus, is home to Ingleside Village Pizza, Jittery Joe’s Coffee, and Francar’s Buffalo Wings. Future additions to Mercer Village include Fountain of Juice and Margarita’s Mexican Bar and Grill. The Bear’s Den is also very close to campus and a local favorite.
There is a variety of other restaurants off-campus, but they are not as convenient to get to because a car is required to reach these places. Downtown Macon offers several different dining options for different tastes. Riverside Drive is home to many fast food options. The two El Sombreros in town are favorites for college students. Some local restaurants accept the Mercer Bear Card as a form of payment and occasionally even offer discounts for students.
