Most students at UD find it easy to walk to Main St or any restaurant in town to get their cravings satisfied. But, let’s face it, being college students brings on many different stresses, forcing students to become tired, lazy and in need of a good meal. This is when most students turn to the wonderful delivery services offered in town.
But what most students in Newark do not know is that GrubHub delivers many of the delicious foods that restaurants do not deliver themselves. Check out the awesome options and order ’em without getting off your couch.
10. Subway (Located on East Main St)
Most Subway locations don’t deliver at all. Well fear not, Blue Hens, because Subway delivers to students until midnight.

9. Salad Works (Located on Main St)
For those students who try and balance out their diet of vodka and natty light, UD students can order a salad, wrap, or sandwich until 7 pm from Salad Works.
#SpoonTip: Ask to join Salad Works Fresh Fan Club to earn points that will earn you a free meal.
8. California Tortilla (Located on Main St)
California Tortilla, or Cal Tor as most UD students say, is still in the battle against Chipotle and El Diablo to be the number one fast casual Mexican restaurant on Main Street. Students seems to gravitate towards Cal Tor because of their amazing queso. Cal Tor also is one of the only Mexican places to deliver.
#SpoonTip: When calling for delivery, tell ’em you have a coupon for FREE chips and queso with a purchase of any entree and drink.
7. Indian Sizzler (Located on Main St)
Did someone say Chicken Tikka Masala? Not only is Indian Sizzler one of the only Indian restaurants on campus, but also UD students find it the most authentic and delicious.
#SpoonTip: Ordering with a group of friends lowers your price. The portions are pretty hefty so one entree will feed multiple people — sharing is caring.
6. Matilda’s and Mad Macs (Located on S College Ave)
When you have a craving for carbs, carbs and some more carbs, this is the place to turn to. With almost 15 different ways to get mac and cheese, this restaurant has a mac for any tastes. How could anyone resist the Mad Mac Bites?

4. Home Grown Cafe (Located on E Main St)
Many UD students find themselves drawn to Home Grown because of their creative and healthy take on many different dishes.

UD students do not necessarily go to Pats for pizza. Students go wild over the other items that Pats has to offer. From Mega Fries to wings and Stromboli, Pats Pizzeria is the ultimate hang over food for UD students. For those who choose to get Pats delivered and are not hung over, Pats is the best guilty pleasure food. Say goodbye to any hope of healthy eating.
#SpoonTip : Here’s a discount tip, when adding extra sauces to the order, don’t click the add sauce option but put in the notes you want a certain sauce with your meal. Also, check your dollars. Remember that sometimes ordering a meal with sides is more expensive than ordering the main dish then adding the sides.
2. No. 1 Chinese (Located in the Newark Shopping Center)
