While students may complain about campus food, the plethora of off-campus restaurants makes up for what may be lacking on campus. Most of the student favorites, such as the many restaurants in Five Points, Beezer’s, the Salty Nut, and the Pita Pit are all within walking distance of campus. The diversity of the food options off campus allows students to choose from virtually any type of ethnic food at a range of prices, and with Columbia being a college town, many restaurants offer late-night deliveries when most other places are closed.
Whether it’s dinner with friends, a hot date, a late-night study snack, or just an escape from campus food, the off-campus dining scene provides quality food with a broad range of choices for students to enjoy. You will definitely not go hungry in a city like Columbia!
