When students choose where they go to college, one of the main things that they discuss is where they can eat while they’re at school. Tour guides tell you all about the on-campus locations that you can use meal swipes or the off-campus locations that will accept Purple Points. These locations like Culver’s and Subway are good and all, but sometimes you might want a little variety in your life, and you want to look for something different. There are plenty of off-campus restaurants that may not take Purple Points, but they are worth the money that you’ll end up paying for it. 

The first location and probably the most affordable is La Piazza Pizzeria on Main Street. Open late every day (except Monday), you can get a variety of different kinds of pizza all made from scratch and other great Italian food that you can eat on the go. A big slice of pepperoni pizza is going to cost you about $3.50 and the most you’ll pay for one of their specialty pizzas is around $4.50. And these aren’t small slices either, these slices will be more than enough to fill you up. And if you still feel like that isn’t enough, you can always bring an extra slice home with you for later. They taste just as good reheated. 

If you’re not feeling like a slice of pizza and would rather have a good burger, I have two great options for you. The first one is Fat Jack’s. At Fat Jack’s, you can have a really good burger or have some of their popular wings. Again, this is all for a very reasonable price. A burger and chips will cost you around $10 while a pound of wings is going to be around the same. If that doesn’t convince you, you can stop in on Tuesday’s for their Trivia night and have a good time with friends. It’s also a great place to watch the Packer games on Sunday’s and you can enjoy even more specials. It’s definitely the place to go when you want to have a nice meal with some friends or watch the game. 

If you’re looking for somewhere a little nicer where you can take that special someone on a first date, you can check out Second Salem.  Like Fat Jack’s, Second Salem has a variety of American style food like burger and wings. On top of that, they have a whole list of beers that they’ve brewed in house (only if you’re of age of course) which are all very good. Not to mention that the staff is fantastic, and you’ll always have a great experience. The atmosphere that they have created will make you and whoever you’re there with feel right at home.

Other than my favorites, you have classics like Culver’s, Taco Fresco, Subway, and Cozumel. All of these are great options as well with Culver’s, Subway, and Cozumel all accepting Purple Points. There are a lot of good places that you can dine off-campus that are both close and very affordable. Each one has its own feel and signature foods that make them unique. Depending of what you feel like eating, there’s a place for you right here in Whitewater.
