One of the college’s hottest spots, Menna’s offers a variety of options. Their dubs, basically burritos, are amazing. They’re stuffed to the max with all sorts of ingredients. If spicy is your thing, you won’t be let down by the Blazin’ dub. The fajita dub is wonderful: It’s perfectly tender and not so juicy to where it becomes a mess by the time you finish it. The ambiance here is a little on the fast food side, but the food more than makes up for that.
