Food For Thought
A Look At Restam*ants
In Winston-Salem
by Mia Wilson
Staff Writer
As the school year begins many WSSU
students will want to break away from the
“interesting” meals served in Kennedy Din
ing Hall and experience some of the
restaurants in the city. As college students,
we tend to look for restaurants that are
clean, provides good service and are very
Scanning Winston-Salem, I found several
restaurants that fit the above description.
Rock-Ola Cafe, on Stratford Road, serves
delicious hamburgers, sandwiches and
french fries. It is a great restaurant for a
lunch date or to take a bunch of friends for a
few laughs.
Bennigan’s, on North Point Blvd., and
Darryl’s in Brookstown Mill are great
restaurants for that impressionable first
date for an impressionable price. Don’t
miss their great specials.
Louisana Purchase located in The Market
Place specializes in Delta region cuisine.
For those 21 and older, the restaurant also
features great entertainment every night.
If you crave international foods, try Los
Amigos on Healy Drive and Tijuana Fats on
Deacon Blvd., which feature Mexican
cuisine. For a little oriental food try China
City on Silas Creek Parkway to satisfy your
'I' J. Dell, on Corpoiation l''reeway and
Country Club Hoad, offers a wide variety ol
subs, soups, salad bar and desserts that are
not only dellelous but liw in price also.
For some good home cooking at real
cheap prices, try Bell Brothers and K&W
Cafeteria, with four locations in Winston-
Salem. Take a friend or Iwwo and a hefty,
Seafood in Winston-Salem is good only if
you know where to go. You will find the ma
jority of WSSU student at Mayflowers on
Peters Creek Parkway and Libby Hill with
three locations in W-S, enjoying their great
specials and tremendous amounts of food.
Pizza Hut and Domino’s Pizza are great
cures for those college students’ cravings
that come once a night.
For great steaks at a great price you
should try Quincy’s and Golden Corral.
Real low on cash? Don’t despair Winston-
Salem also has restaurants for you. These
restaurants includes McDonald’s, Kentucky
Fried Chicken, Bojangles, Taco Bell. Wen
dy’s, Grandy’s and Burger King. These
restaurants are good when you are luitigry
and want something (|uick and (k-licious and
very inexpensive.
For those of you who are vegetarians, you
might want to try the vegetarian pizzas,
sandwiches and salads at the and This-
tle on Loekland Avenues iieai' Baptist
Whatever yimr taste buds crave, Winston-
Salem probably has a restaurant that
serves food that will satisfy them.

older than your fellow classmates and
perhaps not have studied math since your
graduated in the 70’s'’
Of WSSU's student population many are

Charita Martin, 23, a sophomore major
ing in Kdut'ation says. "Being at U.S.Sl has
H'en (|uite an expei'ience Most ol the
students do not realize I'm ever older than
they are, so that m itself is no problem. My
instructors are willing to work with me
when I tell them that 1 am a mother and that
I work part-time after I leave school ’
Brenda Poole, whose age was not reveal
ed, is a junior with a concentration in Mass
Media/Advertising, says, ‘I find it very
frustrating to be in college.The younger
students’ lack of sincere concentration in
college interfere with who sincerely want to
do well. ’
Cynthia Duncan. :\r>. a sophomore and
Nursing Major, says, '’It's very hard trying
to juggle being a single mother of three
daughters, work two full time jobs and be a
student. It's easy to fall behind in studies
