The week of pure college eateries is coming to a close- unfortunately. I think this has certainly been my favorite week so far for Mountaineats. Before I go on about two extremely popular Morgantown pure college restaurants, I want to take the time to talk about what actually makes a college feeding hole.
- Prime Location – it needs to be around the students. It has to be in the heart of the college with a whole lot of foot traffic full of students with pockets filled with their parent’s money.
- Great Prices – as we have discussed before, we like things cheap. You need to get a lot for your money and they need to constantly have specials and coupons for us to save even more.
- Convenient Hours of Operation – We party. With partying comes rapid hunger urges. We need a place in a prime location and good prices to be open when we crave the grease the most.
- Delivery – If we do find ourselves at a house party on a Saturday night, we do not want to drive and cause possible harm, but we are still hungry. Reward this act of responsibility by bringing the food to us, whenever we want it.
Pita Pit obviously offers a Subway style for Pitas. They have a huge selection of meat pitas, veggie, low calorie and even breakfast pitas that you can get any time of the day. They also offer smoothies. Here is a little more detail about it’s Morgantown location and menu. The Morgantown location is open until 4 am Thursday-Saturday! Yes, they cater to the students.
As I already mentioned, the Pita Pit location in Morgantown also offers delivery. Here is a link to the online delivery order form. Which is extremely helpful. A few suggestions for people to get when they go to try it is the Local, the Chicken Caesar and the Awakin’ with Bacon breakfast pita. Some may say that Pita Pit seems like a pretty healthy place to eat, but as we all know calories do add up and eating out anywhere is going to be a hit to the stomach.
WVU student Amina M. has nothing but praise for the Pita Pit.
I think it is completely underrated. I really suggest the falafel. The location is perfect! Right by the PRT, on High Street, nice staff, great prices and I love how they make it right in front of you. It is just the perfect place to eat. Drunk or sober.
Moving on to my favorite High Street restaurant: D.P. Dough. This place rocks. You walk in, go up to the desk and pick from this HUGE list of calzones that they offer. It is about $8 to get a ginormous calzone and drink. It just is not possible to leave here hungry. I know my personal favorite calzone is the BBQ Chicken Zone. It is so flavorful, packed with BBQ sauce, chicken and cheddar cheese. Pretty much everything good in the world is packed into the dough. How can you say no? However, looking at the menu it would be a travesty to only have one calzone and never try another. You just have to keep going back and trying new and exciting zones. The others I would like to recommend are the Combat Zone, School Zone and Drop Zone. I am sure all of them are good. But these are the ones I have tried and loved.
The other amazing thing about it is that if you cannot find a zone that you really like, you can make your own! They list the ingredients and you pick and they serve. It is quite delicious!
I can assure you, it is spotless in the back where they make the food. They really scrub it down and we are always washing our hands. Making the food right is the first priority.
I love knowing that I can go to a place I know is clean. They also have delivery and are open until 3 am Thursday-Saturday. Mmmm…now I want a Calzone…
