As you can tell there are a lot of deals that you can easily take advantage of Uptown. However, sometimes it can be hard to choose what to get.

“I’ve known about some of the more popular deals Uptown, but there are a ton to choose from. My personal favorites are the different Doughby’s calzones of the day or Sushi Nara’s half off rolls. Both are really good deals,” said sophomore Matt Thomas.

Obviously, there are a lot more restaurants and bars in Uptown Oxford, and this probably isn’t every food special that you can find any given night. However, it isn’t as hard as one might think to get good food at a discounted price. You just need to know where to go. Now go out and enjoy some off-campus food that doesn’t hurt your bank account.
