Cheap Eats In Tallahassee

Cheap Eats In Tallahassee

Yes, I'm a college student and a foodaholic.

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.

8 Reasons Girls Who Love Tequila Are Better

Because if she can handle tequila, she can handle you too.

There are all kinds of alcohol stereotypes out there but the one associated with tequila is probably the worst: tequila makes you crazy. But if there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that women who drink tequila are one-of-a-kind.

Whether it's loving or fighting, you'll never find anyone who does it better than a girl who just straight up loves tequila, and here are a few reasons why that is.

1. She's independent

A girl who drinks tequila is probably the same girl who has absolutely no problem telling it like it is. She knows what she wants and goes after it.

2. She doesn't care what you or anyone else thinks

Oh, you have a problem with me taking shots and having a good time? Well, get over it! Bartender, a shot with salt and a lime please!

3. Always dancing

Tequila is an 'upper' so instead of sitting at the bar doing nothing, let's dance! Let's get moving!

4. There is never a dull moment

Speaking of dancing, a girl who drinks tequila is always down for a good time. Whether it's going on an adventure or seeing who can take the most shots, a tequila girl is always down to party.

5. While everyone else is starting to get sleepy, she has all the energy

Like I said, tequila is an 'upper' so while the other girls at the bar are starting to feel groggy and sad, she's all over the place having fun and partying on the dancefloor.

6. She's stronger than the girl crying over a vodka cranberry at the bar.

Sad over a breakup? Don't go for the vodka... Tequila will make you feel better in no time! Plus you can challenge the hot guys at the bar to a shot taking contest.

7. Tequila is healthy for you

Tequila is a probiotic, so some tequila a day keeps the doctor away. Yay for shots!

8. She can hold her own when it comes to alcohol

Any girl who can shoot some shots at the bar all day and night can handle alcohol, which means she can handle herself too. You won't have to deal with her constant breakdowns and mood swings because she will be too busy ordering more shots.

10 Reasons To Start Vaping In 2019 If You Haven't Yet

"It's safer than cigarettes"


Vaping is the rage these days among adolescents and college students. Here are some great reasons to start!

1. It's what all the cool kids do


I wish that I could be like the cool kids

2. It damages your lungs

It's not like you need these to breathe or anything

3. It pollutes the air

Let's pollute the air even more!

4. Nicotine addiction

Just the thing I want to be addicted to

5. "Delicious" flavors

Would you prefer mango flavor or the cancer flavor?

6. The Juul looks like a USB

Your parents won't suspect a thing

7. Inhale metals like nickel and lead

Yummmmmm. Lead poisoning isn't a thing.

8. More likely to get infections


9. You'll eventually want cigarettes

And you'll make your lungs worse

10. Lung and mouth cancer

Who doesn't want cancer

In case you couldn't tell, this was very sarcastic. If you want all of these things, then go ahead, start vaping. But you should know what you're getting yourself into and be prepared for the consequences.

If you already vape, I mean no disrespect and I'm not trying to hate on you, but you should seriously stop. Whatever you think is a good reason for vaping really is not a good enough reason to damage your body.

Stop vaping. And if you don't vape, don't start. Just don't.
