You really can’t expect a college town to function without a proliferation of pizza places, wing joints and late night burger spots – how would the students survive?
Luckily, Blacksburg can accommodate any craving, any time of the day (and, often, any time of night).
At Sharkey’s Wing & Rib Joint, the name pretty much says it all. Daily specials keep ‘em coming, like 2-for-1 burger on Mondays and two pounds of wings for the price of one on Sundays. There’s even a Saturday breakfast buffet to help getting over the late night on Friday a little easier.
PK’s Pizza brings Hokie fans in on game day with 22 televisions, an open patio and mouth-watering sweet potato fries. Hot dogs, burgers, wraps and copious amounts of fried foods can fuel an entire day of football watching.
The Cellar’s menu features pizzas, pastas, subs and calzones alongside martinis and Manahattans, which you can enjoy while listening to some blues, jazz or rockabilly. A Blacksburg landmark for 25 years, Gillie’s Vegetarian Cuisine also hosts a late-night stage for local bands.
For a change of pace for the palate, reasonably priced international fareis available throughout the community, from Mexican and Greek to Indian and Japanese.
Indian Garden brings authentic Indian cuisine to Blacksburg. The extensive menu is sure to accommodate a range of taste buds, from the mild veggie samosas to spicy curries.
And over at Souvlakli’s, the spanakopita with oozy feta cheese and spinach pouring out of the crispy phyllo should please even the pickiest eaters.
For local goodies, residents can walk around the Blacksburg Farmers Market, located downtown. The astounding selection includes handmade cheeses, pasture-raised poultry and seasonal fruits and veggies. Baked goods are great for a quick treat, while the fresh produce can inspire college kids to create a surprisingly healthy salad. Paired with a cold brew, it could be the healthiest meal they have all semester.
