Where should we eat near BU?

I'm looking for a casual (read: cheap) week night dinner on the BU campus. Any suggestions? Could be BBQ, Italian, Burgers, Deli, etc.

  1. Uburger in Kenmore for cheap delicious burgers.

    1. I used to go to Brown Sugar for Thai, but I haven't been in many years. I remember it being pretty tasty back in the day.

      1. re: chefematician

        Still is. It's a nice choice; good service too.

      2. noodle street is pretty good too, and cheap.

        1. I totally second Noodle Street. It is my absolute favorite casual go-to. Brown Sugar is also awesome but is a bit more expensive (think $8-10 a dish at Noodle Street and $10-14 at Brown Sugar). Both are thai by the way. India Quality is slightly north of Kenmore and also good.

          1. a couple blocks off campus, but you can go to the food court adjoining the Super 88 (aka Hong Kong) supermarket and get some grilled beef short rib steaks (kalbi) at the Vietnamese place
