"Best Places to Forget You Ever Had a Meal-Plan"

It’s Wednesday night and that familiar growl comes back into your stomach. You walk into your kitchen to scavenge for food, until disaster strikes...your roommates ate all of your groceries! Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. 

Here’s the breakdown of my personal favorite places to eat off-campus:


Crazy Dough’s Pizza: With a large variety of signature pizzas, Crazy Dough’s is a great option if you’re close to main campus. Pro Tip: Show your BC ID and get 15% off your bill. What to get: Chicken Parm Calzone. Crazy Dough's Pizza was also a 2015 participant in the BC Taste of Off-Campus.

Eagle’s Deli: Eagle’s has been a long-time Boston College staple and is famous for their huge portions, giving students the most bang for their buck. Pro Tip: The “Eagle’s Challenge” is not for the faint of heart, with 6 lbs of burger and 5 lbs of fries, it defeated even Adam Richman from Man vs. Food. What to get: The Godzilla Burger.

El Pelon: Authentic quality and fresh ingredients make for some of the best Mexican food around, better even than (dare I say it) Chipotle. Pro Tip: In December they’ll make cinnamon-spiced Mexican Hot Chocolate, perfect to warm you up on a snowy day. What to get: The Caramelos. El Pelon was also a 2015 participant in the BC Taste of Off-Campus.

Moogy’s: This place is all about good vibes. With an extensive comfort food menu, board games, and all-day breakfast, it’s the perfect place to de-stress after classes. Pro Tip: $1 pancake stacks on Monday, $2 burgers on Tuesday, 50¢ wings on Wednesday.
What to get: "The Full Monty" steak and cheese. You won't regret it!

Yamato: All you can eat sushi and any kind of Japanese food you can think of, all for $25. Come with an empty stomach and the rest of your roommates, and watch the plates pile up. Pro Tip: Try not to order too much sushi, they charge extra for leftovers. What to get: Yaki Udon Noodles with Chicken.
