Generations of students have found a taste of home at Momma Goldberg's Deli, Momma G's for short. You can try a Big Momma, Momma's Soups or Momma's Nachos, but the must-have item here is a Momma's Love "all the way", a roast beef, ham, smoked turkey, and muenster cheese sandwich drenched in Momma's special dressing.
You can get your picture on the Wall of Fame at Cheeburger Cheeburger downtown, whose motto is "Bigger is Better." All you have to do is eat the Pounder, a burger weighing in at a mere 20 ounces.
