Restaurants Around the University Offer Delivery Services and Low Prices
It seems like no matter where a college student is, if they are awake at 1 am, they are hungry. After all the dining halls are closed, there is only one option left, delivery. One of the many great things about the location of the University is that we are close to many delicious places that are willing to deliver until the wee hours of the morning.
Known for their fat sandwiches, Nellys Pizza is open until 4 am every single day. From pizza to burgers to burritos, Nellys will satisfy your late night cravings. Want to pretend you are being healthy? A large veggie pizza with broccoli, spinach, onions, peppers, mushrooms, black olives, and tomatoes is only $15.75. Can’t decide between pasta and pizza? Try the ziti pizza with baked ziti over mozzarella and sauce.
If you decide you do not want the usual slice, fat sandwiches have a little bit of everything. The Fat Nights is overflowing with cheesesteak, chicken fingers, mozzarella sticks, French fries, marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese. With over 20 sandwiches, there is something for everyone.
If you have been searching for a burger that will make your taste buds thank you, look no further. JR’s West End will deliver burgers, wraps, French fries, and much more until 2:30 am Sunday through Wednesday and 3:30 am Thursday through Saturday.
For $7.25, the Original JR will give you two ground sirloin burgers with melted American cheese, green leaf lettuce, and burger sauce. Add fries to your order for only $3.95. Not feeling a burger tonight? Another favorite among many is the crispy buffalo chicken wrap.
Dana Mattia, a sophomore elementary education major said, “My personal favorite is the buffalo chicken wrap from JR’s after a long night of studying.” Filled with breaded chicken, green leaf lettuce, wing sauce, and blue cheese, there is no stopping once you dig into this packed wrap.
When your night does end a little earlier than expected or does not even start until later in the night, Joe’s Pizza III delivers on Fridays until 10:30 pm and Saturdays until 10:00 pm. With the option to make any of their pizzas personal, you do not even need to decide with friends on what to get. The decision is all yours, so get creative.
Salma Ahmed, a sophomore international business major said, “Joe’s margarita slices and garlic knots are mouth watering.”
Joe’s offers a huge selection of white pizza choices, which is sometimes very hard to find. They also have a wider selection of soups, which you do not see very often at a pizzeria this delicious.
Specials are a college student’s best friend when it comes to getting food delivered. Any time we can save over 10 cents, we get excited. Cluck-U Chicken has eight filling value packs that provide you with one meal, one side, and one drink for one price.
Until 3 am, enjoy a number four which includes five buffalo wings, a choice of side, and a regular soda for $7.99. If you are more of a boneless person, then try the number five. Available in either three piece, five piece, or ten piece, this combo also includes one side and a regular soda. The choices for sides include mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, cole slaw, side veggie salad, and a few others.
Late night snacking is not the only time you can find a deal. Many places around the area also offer lunch and dinner specials as well. JR’s West End offers monthly specials that are available from 11 am until 5 pm and are only $4.99 each.
Fuji Japanese Steakhouse in Shrewsberry offers half-priced sushi rolls for both lunch and dinner, but you must dine in. No matter what you are in the mood for you are bound to find something delicious for a reasonable price.
Carrie Digironimo, advising liasion for the School of Education, said that on the rare occasion that she orders in, it is usually from a lunch specials menu.
Whether you have had a great night or a horrible day, delivery will always be there to help you out when all other options fail.
With plenty of places to eat around the University, you never have to worry about being unsatisfied when it comes to filling up on delicious food.
