The Rock is a great Lebanese/Mediterranean place. They have good prices with almost every meal under $10. The Greek chicken salad is really good and so are the gyros. The location is near campus, so parking will be limited. It would be best to walk.

Tasty gyros and enough other options to make all four teenagers happy. Fast service, affordable prices, trendy/rustic interior, and clean bathrooms!
