There are many restaurants that are within a short distance from campus. You can find everything from your cheap fast food at McDonald’s to fine dining at King George Inn. Being able to explore all of the restaurants in the area is definitely a benefit of having a car on campus. Don’t worry though—the Muhlenberg Shuttle will take you to most of the big restaurants near campus, and you could even walk to a few of them if you were desperate. Buca di Beppo and the Shanty are two popular places that are on the more expensive side, but it’s typically agreed that they’re well worth the money. All of the big chain restaurants are easy to find, and Allentown also has a great variety of smaller, privately-owned restaurants. Most of these places, such as LoBaido’s, are located downtown and require a little more searching.
As far as restaurants go, there isn’t much that Allentown doesn’t offer. Although the food on campus isn’t bad, it can lack variety. For this reason, eating out is one of the things that students enjoy doing off campus the most. It’s great to be able to get off campus for something other than the usual Garden Room or GQ selections. Most students would eat out more if they had more time and money. Luckily, there are restaurants that are close and inexpensive. Yet, there are also a number of restaurants available for special occasions or when the family comes to visit.
