The Corner is full of great places to eat (Bodo's!), and you can take the bus to Barracks or downtown to eat there. Some of my favourites are Bodo's, Qdoba, Arch's (frozen yogurt), Mellow Mushroom, and I've heard Lemon Grass is good (all on the Corner). Barrack's has some fast food like McDonald's and Taco Bell, Chipotle, Buffalo Wild Wings, Smoothie King, and down further there's Panera Bread, Five Guys, Ben & Jerry's, and lots of other restaurants I have not yet tried. Right behind Lambeth is Panda Express and what I believe is an Afghan restaurant?I'm not as familiar with downtown, but I've seen several restaurants that are surely good. Around JPA is Wings Over Charlottesville and Thai99. If you can find people with a car, you can make your way to Cookout, Hibachi Grill, Outback Steakhouse, Woodfire Grill, and tons more. So there are basically a lot of fantastic restaurants, so you'll have to look around for yourself to see what you can find!

Everyone agrees that the restaurants in Charlottesville are fantastic and plentiful. The food quality and restaurant options are what make it feel more like a big city. The Corner has tons of college-type cafés and restaurants that are fun and convenient. They offer everything from standard bar food to Caribbean, Asian, and European fare. The Corner is very popular for lunch and casual dinners, while the Downtown Mall has many amazing restaurants that feature even more adventurous food and wine (C&O, Rapture, Hamilton’s, Escafe, and more), and it is a popular destination for students seeking a nicer meal. Of course, there are restaurants all over, but in Charlottesville there are definitely more really memorable and incredible places than not.
Don’t be surprised if, by the time you graduate from UVA, there are restaurants in Charlottesville that you’ve never gotten a chance to sample. Generally, your first two years at UVA, you find yourself wrapped up more in the food on campus and on the Corner, and sometimes you don’t run into the hidden treasures that Charlottesville has to offer. In your later years, when transportation is easier and you are getting comfortable enough to be adventurous, you start to really see how much there is out there in Charlottesville dining. Try to get off-campus and out on the restaurant scene earlier in your college career. Your stomach will thank you for it!
