Long Beach is a big city, and there is never a lack of food options. Down the street from the University, there are plenty of eateries either on Bellflower Boulevard or Atherton Street, including Wendy's, IHOP, In-N-Out Burger, Carl's Jr., Jamba Juice, McDonald's, and Baja Fresh. In a larger city, there is always something for everyone. There are also diners and restaurants nearby. If you're hungry, just look around and you'll find something that will satisfy your tastebuds. On Second Street, there are Lebanese, Indian, Japanese, Thai, Italian, Greek, and Korean restaurants. Diversity is everywhere around Long Beach, and, therefore, the food is diverse, as well.
There are rarely complaints about food choices and places. If people want popular food, it's around, but if there is a desire for something new, it never hurts to try a new restaurant and chances are it is going to be delicious and amazing. A big fan favorite around the CSULB area is Michael's on Naples Ristorante—a tasty restaurant, with a nice bar and good service.
