#WFU18: These Restaurants Are Worth A Trip Off Campus!

Every once in awhile, it’s necessary to flee Reynolda campus and descend into the city that is Winston-Salem. But as a freshman, it can be difficult to do – especially if you don’t have a car.

But hey – every collegiette has gotta eat! And Pit pizza and sandwiches get boring, fast. So grab a few girls on your hall (including the one with a car) and head out to these restaurants.

They’re all within a ten-minute drive and totally worth the trip!

If you’re craving…
