Welcome to another edition of the 2500 Central Park blog, the go-to read for students living in College Station apartments. Whether you’re looking forward to a carefree break from school or preparing to work your butt off in exchange for a big paycheck, Summer is close.
Spending your summer in a college town can be an absolute blast, especially when you live in the apartments College Station students choose for a sparkling resort-style pool. Prepare for your friends to hit you up on the regular to try to get pool access.
If you’re looking for tips on how to develop a sick beach bod, you’ve come to the wrong place. In this post, we’re talking about snacks. This week’s blog post is about the top purchases you can make when you just need a snack in College Station — fast food edition.
One of the biggest advantages to living in a college town is the abundance of super-delicious food that’s available around every corner. Sometimes, the best food is the fastest food, and that’s definitely the case at the five eateries listed below.
Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers – The Box Combo with 4 Chicken Fingers
Alright, so this isn’t exactly a snack. But you should never walk out of a Raising Cane’s without a 4 Chicken Finger Box Combo in your hands. Let’s lay it all out there, shall we? You get 4 chicken fingers, waffle fries, Texas Toast and that sweet, savory all-around delicious Cane’s Sauce.
Sonic Drive-In – Happy Hour Slushie
Half-priced slushies in 95 degree Texas heat? Step right up, partner. There’s nothing better than realizing you’re close to a Sonic Drive-In during that glorious two hour window from 2-4pm.
Of course, most people aren’t always in the mood for a giant hot dog from Sonic. However, when are you not in the mood for a half-priced slushie? It may be the single most refreshing drink one can find in College Station, with apologies to ice water.
McDonalds – Oreo Frosty and Small Fries
Believe it or not, it is possible to go to McDonalds without regretting it the next day. All you have to do is exercise a little restraint when you’re telling the drive-thru attendee your order. Resist ordering the Big Mac meal and say no to the 10 piece chicken mcnuggets. Just turn your gaze towards to right side of the menu and point at the Oreo Frosty. You go to McDonalds to find delicious things, and this thing is downright delicious. We encourage you to grab a small order of fries to dip in the frosty as well. Live a little!
Taco Bell – Nachos Supreme
This recommendation comes with a bit of a disclaimer. While the Nachos Supreme is the best meal available at Taco Bell right now, the fast-food chain will soon be rolling out a new version of their nachos. Much like Taco Bell’s Naked Chicken taco that features a shell made out of fried chicken, the new nachos will feature CHIPS made out of FRIED CHICKEN. You read that right, ladies and gentlemen. Taco Bell is easily the most innovative fast-food chain out there, and as hungry students, we can do nothing but stand up and applaud.
