10: Bagel Bagel Café: This breakfast and lunch establishment is a great place to go for a fresh breakfast sandwich or bagel in the morning, Or if you find yourself sleeping in until 2PM like we Seminoles so often do, you can still swing or by for a delicious turkey and cheddar bagel sandwich, a salad, or buffalo chicken wrap. Bagel Bagel is a good change up from your average chain sandwich shop. It’s definitely worth a try.
9: Super Perros Colombian Restaurant: There isn’t much quality Colombian food near the university, with the exception of Super Perros. This local establishment on the corner of Tennessee and Ocala has a variety of delicacies on the Menu. From giant hot dogs to Colombian steak to the best rice and beans in town, you’d do well not to be deceived by the looks of this Columbian gem.
8. Jim and Milt’s: This restaurant serves up the most popular BBQ within 5 miles of Florida State campus. Jim and Milt’s serves homemade breakfast, lunch, and dinner at prices that we college students can afford. The service is quick and the freshly cooked meats and sides are particularly popular on game days. So move over Sonny’s, this is the only way to go for BBQ in Tallahassee.
7. Momo’s Pizzeria: This legendary pizzeria is famous for their monstrous homemade slices. Typically this pizza joint will attract a large lunch and dinner crowd.
