FOOD

Do you and your friends crave burritos 24/7? It’s a total mood. To feed your burrito craving, head over to Pablo’s Mexican Grill on Main Street in Cedar Falls. They offer customizable burritos, salads, and tacos that range from only $5.70 to $6, so you are not breaking the bank on expensive eating-out options. The highlight of a Pablo’s eating experience? The fresh, homemade salsas that feature flavors like chipotle tomatillo blend, habanero garlic and lime, as well as specialty salsas that rotate every two weeks.

As for dessert, there are many options that fall under $9 or less. One of the best is the new creperie called Tata Yaya, which is also located on Main Street in Cedar Falls. It is a locally-owned business with an eclectic atmosphere that provides customers with savory or sweet crepes, waffles, and soon they will be adding pancakes to their menu.

“I think students should check out the restaurant because it is a great homework spot and an escape from campus,” Jessica Sydnes, a third-year Wartburg major, said. “The food is also great and I have the goal to try every item on their menu.”

If you are looking at staying in Waverly, most of you know that Dairy Queen and Four Queens is open for the season, even if it is a bit chilly for ice cream. I know, I know, it is never too chilly for ice cream.
