Given the daunting task of trying to maintain a social and an academic life at Virginia Tech, many find themselves up at all hours of the night. Whether you are trying to pull an all-nighter to study for an exam or going out with friends, it is easy to find yourself starving in the wee hours of the morning. But, since most of the dining halls are closed, what do you do?? Keep reading for the top five places to order late around VT.
1. DP Dough
DP dough offers amazing wings, calzones, tots and breadstix for a price that won’t break your budget. DP Dough is an awesome alternative to Dominoes (the pizza doesn’t taste like cardboard!)
2. Insomnia Cookies
Insomnia Cookies are the best around! There are so many options to choose from including Snickerdoodle, Double Chocolate Chunk and even Coconut Pecan. Insomnia Cookies also offers ice cream to top the cookies off.
Dx is the only dining hall on campus that stays open later than 12AM. While you can use your dining dollars, there is usually a long line so get there early!
Pro Tip: The chicken tenders are amazing, under 500 calories and provide 37 grams of protein! GAINZ
Another Pro Tip: Don’t bother stopping by Dx on a Friday or Saturday night unless you don’t mind severely intoxicated freshmen.
As a New Jersey native, I am very picky about pizza. However, Benny’s makes the cut. Benny’s is known for their larger-than-normal slices. One slice is about the size of 2 regular slices and only $5!
5. Jimmy John’s
Jimmy Johns is a chain that serves subs! You can design your own sandwich or choose from their large signature sub menu.
Pro Tip: I usually order a 12 inch sub and have it cut into two pieces so I can enjoy the rest of it for lunch the next day!
