College is a time when everyone’s dollar needs to go a little farther than it did back in high school. Students are constantly looking for the best deal around campus, and it is no surprise which three businesses were chosen as the best bang for your buck in the Twin Cities.
It was a close fought battle, with each business closing in on the top spot for the best deal on campus.
Coming in at number three, a white building that faces the busy Linden St. and sells a burger basket with fries for only $4.50, was Brewe-Ha’s.
The burger basket has always been around at Brewe-Ha’s since it first opened.
“It is a great place for college kids to come and get a beer and a burger for under $5,” Melissa Moorman, manager at Brewe-Ha’s, said.
Rolling into the second place spot was Prime Time Pizza’s $4.99 cheese pizza. Patrons must order this large pizza before 9 p.m. to get the pizza at this price. Prime Time also offers pizza slices at only $1.50 for walk-ins.
Ultimately, there must be a winner, and the first place spot goes to a convenience store on the corner of Main and Locust, close enough to campus for a quick trip.
The Circle K offers a $.75 Polar Pop, which is a steal for college students. Circle K sells Pepsi and Coca-Cola products, as well as non-carbonated products.
“We offer any size drinks for only $.69, before tax,” Maria Mathine, assistant manager at Circle K, said.
