Five affordable restaurants close to campus


The life of a college student often involves a lack of cash flow and spending on a budget.

We all have to eat and wish to eat good food without breaking our wallets.

But there are places in Stockton where a cash-strapped student can get quality food without breaking the bank.

Round Table Pizza

Open daily with a 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. buffet.

Located on the Miracle Mile, a student cannot go wrong with good classic pizza, especially if it’s all you can eat for under $10.

Let’s not forget the restau- rant also has one of the most delectable ranch dressing sauces anywhere to compliment every bite. However, any hour is a good hour for a Round Table Pizza.

“Then you go to Round Table for the buffet! Eat all you want and don’t leave until you’re full,” said Andre Godfrey, student. He’s exactly right.

Perhaps pizza or buffet not so much your thing.

Bagel Express

Located at 1461 W March Lane, a block away from Delta’s campus.

A great location to enjoy a fulfilling breakfast, lunch or brunch. Offering more than simply bagels and coffee. A nice menu with an assortment of bagel options and delicious sandwiches. It’s also the perfect place for quick bite if break in-between or before classes. Try the jalapeno cheese bagel or the chicken club sandwich.

L&L Hawaiian Barbecue

Located two blocks of Delta’s campus at 4555 N Pershing Avenue, Set 33A.

Get a good taste of a local Hawaiian meal at great prices. It’s food that will not leave your stomach feeling light. The restaurant’s food holds close in comparison to locations on the islands. Try the Kahlua Pork or Katsu Chicken. The Spam Musabi too is a must try for $2.

Tepe Taqueria

Located at 1205 W. March Lane.

It’s impossible to go wrong choosing anything off the menu. A classic taqueria with reasonable prices. Difficult to beat a delicious $5 carne asada burrito.

The Creamery

Located a few blocks from campus at 5756 Pacific Avenue, Ste. 3

If you haven’t had one of the restaurant’s desserts you’re surely missing out.

It’s a good location for a burger that’s better than the less filling McDonald’s or Burger King.

Or maybe you just need to fill that sweet tooth. Try The Creamery’s assortment of dessert and milkshakes.

This is just a small list of the hundreds of food options in the not so little city of Stockton.

These eateries are close to campus and won’t stretch your wallet too thin.
