Dana Dishes: Top Five Restaurants

By Dana Berlin

A must know for new and returning students of LSC, this beneficial read will give some insight into my top five places to eat in and around Lyndonville

5. Bagel Depot – whether going for breakfast bagels or to grab some lunch, the Bagel Depot offers a great selection of bagel flavors.  My personal choice would be to purchase a breakfast bagel, as the Bagel Depot offers real egg, bacon and cheese. I would rather get a bagel from here than Dunkin Donuts any day. 

This eatery is not really a sit down place, offering hardly any interior furnishings.  The walls lay empty and barren, and the carpet seems to be unwashed for many months.  I would enter quickly, order a bacon, egg and cheese, and leave as soon as I get my food.

4. China Moon - If you're looking for good quality Chinese food, this is not the place to find it.  China Moon is a typical Chinese buffet that offers unhealthy, sodium rich food that people wolf down in bunches.  However, no matter how unhealthy the food, it tastes just so damn good. 

There is nothing like piling in the Chinese food when I'm starving.  While the dinner price is a little expensive, the lunch prices for dine-in are relatively reasonable. 

My suggestion is to order takeout, because you can get just what you want, and only pay for that amount of food.  The prices between the dine-in and takeout options differ greatly, but if you really want to eat-in, it's not the end of the world. 

3. The Pub Outback – on top of offering 25 cent wings on Monday nights, the Pub Outback is a nice place to go and enjoy a quality meal and a few drinks with your buds.  Their wings are not the typical bone-in style of other places, but their "tenders" are a great for the price you pay.  

If you are looking for a great appetizer, their mozzarella sticks are a unique, one of a kind, tasty treat.  Located in East Burke, the Pub offers an array of on tap and bottled beers, as well as many mixed drinks to fit any mood.  Pricing is reasonable for college students on a budget.  You will not be disappointed with your visit to The Pub Outback. 

2. The Pizza Man - The Pizza Man has made some major upgrades recently resulting in a full service bar, table service and 25 cent wings on Mondays.  There is still the same quality, great tasting food offered before the re-model, but now you can also enjoy a rum and coke while eating that food. 

The full service bar offers five big screen televisions so you can watch whatever game you want, any day of the week.  My suggestions would be to enjoy some beers while watching the Bruins run through the rest of the NHL. 

1. Miss Lyndonville Diner – The best option for food in Lyndonville has always been, and will continue to be, Miss Lyndonville Diner.  This one of a kind diner offers a number of options for breakfast and lunch, with by far the best value in town.  You can eat a full course meal with a drink and dessert for under $8, which is almost unheard of anywhere else. 

Don't think you can show up early morning or afternoon on the weekend and get a seat right away.  There is usually at least a five or ten minute wait.
