Try the following restaurants out for size next time you have a little cash to splurge!
1. Sup Dogs.
The number one restaurant any student will here about as a suggestion if they attend East Carolina University is without a doubt Sup Dogs.

Sup Dogs is the best place to go on a weekend or before or after an ECU sports event! It’s also right downtown in walking distance of any dorm on campus!
2. Duck Donuts.
This donut shop in Greenville is without a doubt the best there is to offer. These donuts at Duck Donuts are not only the most delicious you will ever have, but also the most unique. At a college-student-level price of about one dollar per donut, you can get a bacon maple, blueberry waffle, or even key lime donut! You can also pick the kind of icing and toppings completely original to your own taste if you like. These donuts are no regular donuts, as they are also a unique, light, fluffy, and funnel cake-like consistency, and not a far drive from campus!
3. Insomnia Cookies.

They offer the best classic cookies as well as new ideas such as confetti, double mint chocolate, and red velvet!
Chico’s Mexican Restaurant in downtown Greenville may seem like an ordinary Mexican restaurant, but it is actually one of the best places to eat off campus.
