Battle of the restaurants – Salisbury
Salisbury University students will be looking for closer dining options with colder months approaching.
What does Salisbury have to offer students looking for a break from on-campus dining?
First, I visited Dayton’s Restaurant. The staff was constantly engaged in friendly conversations with customers.
The plain cheeseburger with fries I ordered were bland and mediocre. My colleague found a large piece of cardboard floating in his drink. The total cost of our food was $27.00.
I saw various microwaves in the cooking area, which explained our less than stellar dining experience.
Next, I stopped by The Corner Grill where the food we ordered tasted incredibly fresh. This restaurant had one of the best hoagies I have ever tasted.
My server was very friendly and as constantly checking on me.
SU student Grey Lee said he “[loved how his] burger was not sloppy [or] falling apart. It [was] not greasy or messy [and] full of flavor.”
The interior was very simple and kept clean. My colleague and I spent a total of $25.67.
Finally, I visited Tastee Freez. The parfait I received did not surprise me and the staff was rude. The server was impolite and unprofessional when I attempted to update my order.
My parfait and my colleague’s small sundae came to a total of $8.96.
Customer Leslie Cook said that he “[comes here for] quick dinner [with] my son every now and then. The food is OK, but it is pretty cheap [so I do not] expect much.”
There are better dining options in Salisbury than Dayton’s Restaurant and Tastee Freez. The Corner Grill provided my favorite experience. The dining experience is basic with a punch of flavor.
