Ben's Chili Bowl (1213 U St NW) - Rated #1 on AOL City Guide's Cheapest Eats for Washington D.C., this landmark establishment serves up their famous chili on everything from burgers to sausages. A MUST!!
San Antonio Bar and Grill (3908 12th Street NE) - A place that can be reached easily on foot and serves up great, moderately priced Tex-Mex staples with FRESH salsa daily.
Brookland Cafe (3740 12th Street NE) - The cafe is popular for their American Bistro cuisine, desserts from local bakeries and quaint interior. With no entrees above $10 it makes it a great option for college students.
Today's Pizza (3928 12th Street NE) - This pizza place is a neighborhood legend. With reliable and speedy delivery, and low prices, the customers coming back. Nothing to write home about, but gets the job done.
Hitching Post (200 Upshur St NW) - This restaurant will transport you to Southern Lowcountry with their soul food. Classics like fried chicken, mac and cheese, collard greens and baked chicken are favorites for a reason. Customers have warned about a longer than anticipated wait, but it is definitely worth it.
Hunan Delight (333 Hawaii Ave NE) - A Chinese restaurant that makes typical Chinese-American dishes, but features quick delivery. Don't expect a lot of authenticity, but if you are craving Chinese food get it from this restaurant, which is north of campus
Oceanaire Seafood Room (1201 F St NW # 1) - This is an upscale seafood restaurant that is only a 15 minute car ride from campus. Located right near the White House, this eatery serves up the freshest fish in the city and is a true D.C experience. It's pricey, but worth the splurge for a special occasion.
Wings Over Washington (204 Michigan Avenue Northeast) -This chain has mastered the art of the wing. With the option to go boneless or bone-in, you can't go wrong. They sell their wings by the half-pound, and if the delivery isn't fast enough to keep you ordering again and again, the variety of flavors will.
Everlasting Life Community Co-Op (2928 Georgia Avenue NW) - A grocery store turned take-out food bar,this place is truly a hidden gem. They serve hot and cold sandwiches, as well as vegan food. This tucked away counter is sure to impress any foodie.
Food Corner Kabob and Rossetria (2301 Georgia Ave NW) – This spot may be located closer to the campus of Howard University, but it serves up traditional Middle Eastern food at low prices.
