College. A noun typically synonymous with "low-income," "broke," and
"strapped for cash." While you can get a meal at the Cougareat without
breaking the bank, here are four campus dining locations outside of the
Cougareat where you can get a less expensive meal in addition to a
change of scenery. While you can find other menu items for less than
five at these locations, we do have a few personal recommendations.
Museum of Art Café
Located in the mezzanine of the Museum of Art
There are always plenty of salads to choose from, which is perfect for
the hot summer heat. Our personal favorite is the Chicken Curry Salad
(small for $4.79).
Located in the Games Center
Enjoy lunch in the lively atmosphere of the Games Center. Feel free to
play a game of pinball while you wait for your order. Orville and
Wilbur's offers wings with many different sauces but we recommend either
the barbeque or the buffalo wings (2.99 for six pieces or $4.79 for ten
Located in the Creamery on Ninth, 1209 North 900 East
If you need to stop by the Creamery for groceries after work or class,
grab a bite to eat beforehand at the 9th Street Grill. We can't even
make a recommendation because it's too hard to choose between the
burgers and chicken sandwiches! However, we do suggest the fries and all
of the ice creams.
The daily hot entrée is always under five dollars, as are the soups.
Some options could be Broccoli Cheddar Soup, Chili, Beef or Veggie
Lasagna, Shepherd's Pie, and other soups and hot entrées.
