Perks of living in Tallahassee? Getting to attend one of the greatest schools in the nation, endless people to meet, and ridiculous cuisine to try. Whether you want that morning doughnut from Donut Kingdom or the late night tacos from Tacospeak, Tally has all the food you could possibly need. Not only is there endless varieties so you never have a dull meal, but most food can be found at a reasonable price!

Reporting live from my bed as I indulge in Gumby's pokey stix, here are 10 Tallahassee eats to get your money's worth:


1. Momo's Pizza

Looking for a pizza the size of your head? With their biggest pizza at 30" known as their "XLarge" you'll be able to eat for days, including your friends. Slices start at $4.75 a piece and you'll definitely be getting a bang for your buck over here.

2. Jim & Milt's

One of the very few BBQ places still left in the Tallahassee area. Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, you'll never run out of the taste for barbecue sauce.

3. Gumby's

Try the 'Pokey Stix' just trust me. Typically open until 3 AM, it's a perfect place to hit after a night out around town. Go ahead and stuff your face with the Gumby's deals, we've all been there.

4. Melting Pot

Typically, this could be an expensive meal, but go on a Tuesday and you'll pay about $12 for cheese and dessert. It's the best offer money can buy. Endless bread and cheesecake to go with your fondue, you'll be full before the second round.

5. Gordo's

With funny slogans and memorable signs, it's hard not to keep a special place in your heart for this spot. Whether you're looking to drink up a 'Gordo's Smash' and not remember the rest of your night or grab a tasty Cuban Sandwich, come here. Go ahead and "put a Cuban in your mouth."

6. Blaze Pizza

Is it really a college town if you don't list pizza multiple times? At this location, look forward to creating a pizza exactly how you want it. With multiple choices, you'll always find something that looks appetizing to put on your pizza!

7. El Patron

Here you'll not only receive affordable food, but a decent happy hour as well! Needing fajitas or quesadillas to snack on before a night out? El Patron will provide for under $10. Come for the food, stay for happy hour.


Of course you can't forget the incredible 'honey butter chicken biscuit' from Whataburger or the new Vale Food Company. There will never be enough time to discuss every good food joint in Tallahassee. Food etiquette, it's a real thing.

11 Recipes To Get You Through College That Won't Break The Bank

A delicious list of budget-friendly meals.

After starting college and living on my own for a few years, I have had to learn how to cook. I've always had a knack for cooking, it just took living on my own to be obsessed with it. Since I'm going to school, I don't have a bunch of money to blow on nightly dinners. I have compiled a list of recipes that I absolutely love, that are cheap and have gotten me through school.

1. Buffalo ranch chicken pasta

This is my favorite recipe out of all of them. I stumbled upon this recipe a few years ago while surfing through Facebook. I make this recipe once every few weeks and it is my go-to for homemade recipes. There aren't even that many ingredients either.

2. Sausage and cream cheese dip

This is a staple in my house. Grab a bag of chips and some sausage and cream cheese dip and you're set. It's creamy and delicious, and with the spicy sausage, adds a tremendous flavor. There are literally only three ingredients, so go pick them up now for this amazing recipe.

3. Turkey burgers

I love myself a good burger, but there is something about turkey that enhances a burger's flavor. It's very lean and is a better alternative to ground beef. Season the turkey with whatever you like, and toss it on the grill/stove. This meal is super cheap and simple, all you really need is turkey and buns! Trust me, make these turkey burgers with some mashed potatoes, you won't regret it

4. Buffalo chicken dip

Buffalo chicken dip is a nationwide favorite. It's flavorful and spicy, and is perfect for all occasions. Again, very few ingredients, so this recipe doesn't break the bank.

5. Pasta carbonara

This recipe is super simple, and extra delicious. Bacon mixed with eggs in pasta is a combination that I never would have thought of, but I'm glad I found. It's filling and cheap so stock up!

6. Baked lemon chicken

This recipe is basically lemon and chicken. Its soft and juicy and goes great with oven roasted potatoes. I promise you, you won't regret making this meal. It's a very reliable meal

7. Chicken parmesan 

Chicken parmesan is amazing! It gives you a true Italian feel, and goes great with pasta. This recipe is filling and tasty so make sure to cook this ASAP.

8. Homemade pizza

Head to your local grocery store and pick up pre-made pizza dough, sauce, and whatever toppings you like! It's cheaper than buying a pizza and is really fun to make with your loved one.

9. Baked potato casserole

This recipe is so amazing. It's cheap to make and great to taste! It's all you could ever dream for as a college student, and it might be your next favorite meal

10.  Crockpot mac n cheese

Every young person loves mac n cheese. Kraft is great and all, but it's better to make it yourself. This gooey, delicious recipe will surely have you feeling great during and after.

This budget-friendly list will be a lifesaver for people first living on their own at school. They are easy to make and really cheap. I use these recipes all the time, and so should you.
