These spreads are usually much more costly, but during the seven days of Restaurant Week you have the opportunity to taste these expensive meals at an affordable price.

If you’re planning on staying near North Campus, then check out Adam’s Rib, Average Joe’s Bar & Grill, Duff’s Famous Wings or Scotch N’ Sirloin.
