Since the first thing on many starving college student’s minds is where their next meal is coming from, it is reassuring to know there are so many delicious places to eat around campus and farther afield. You can find almost any type of food just minutes away from campus. Everyone agrees large chain restaurants are always a safe bet and have a great selection. La Jolla is known for its lack of fast food, so be prepared for a big check if you plan on eating out in La Jolla.
For those of you a little more adventurous about your food choices, many students say that some of their best meals have come from finding smaller restaurants on side streets. There are tons of cafés and sandwich shops lining the streets of Pacific Beach and Mission Bay. There is great Mexican food available in San Diego all day, everyday. The consensus around UCSD is that there is nothing better than a burrito or carne asada nachos for a study break, after a party, or before class.
