Los Angeles, CA - The Halal Guys

On campus in Southern California, students absolutely love to order from The Halal Guys.

Lubbock, TX - Texas Taco Company

Taco Tuesday should to be everyday of the week, and in Lubbock, when it comes to the ordering habits of students that is certainly the case. Opening in April of 2017, Texas Taco Company was quick to win over locals with their carefully handcrafted sauces and an exciting range of signature tacos including sriracha shrimp and the spicy pig. On campus, flexibility has proven to be essential with the build-your-own option soaring above all other items.

Gainesville, FL - Vale Food Co

Students in Northern Florida are a little more selective with an eye towards healthy alternatives like Vale Food Co. Their regular bowl is a clear standout on campus allowing the freedom to customize and choose two bases, two vegetables, two proteins, a sauce, and a boost. The boost allows you to spruce up your bowl with add-ons like parmesan cheese, balsamic tomatoes, sunflower seeds and more.

Lexington, KY - The Simple Greek

The Simple Greek offers a healthy, yet authentic, spin on traditional Greek food. In Lexington, students prefer the bowl over the pita, but both offer you a choice of traditional gyro, chicken gyro, grilled steak, and the campus preferred grilled chicken. Pro tip: add kalamata olives, garbanzo beans, and of course, tzatziki to really treat your tastebuds.

New York City, NY - The Brooklyn Bagel & Coffee Company

There’s few things more synonymous with New York City than the bagel and the go-to study snack for students who grace Washington Square Park in Manhattan is—you guessed it—bagels!
