Fricano's Deli & Catering

Perfect For:Cheap EatsLunch

Fighting the campus crowd is usually not our first choice for lunch hour. Maybe it’s because the responsibility-less students remind us that we have to go back to our desk prison, or maybe it’s because there’s always a bus in your way. But the sandwiches at Fricano’s are worth your trouble. Pick from one of their five kinds of reubens or go with the always-dependable Italian club. The portions are so big, you’ll probably only get through half. But when you get back to your desk you’ll still be thinking about your lunch and inevitably eat the other half. They’re open until 8pm, so you can stop by on your way home to pick up a dinner to be eaten on your couch.
