"Georgia State's restaurant row"

Just north of the Five Points MARTA station, Broad Street is home to student-friendly restaurants with patio seating. If you're craving Asian fast food, you'll find it here at Georgia's Best Bento and BBQ (don't be fooled by the name; it's run of the mill Chinese takeout, but plentiful and affordable). Pho is available across the street, as is Kentucky Fried Chicken and Taco Bell.

Rosa's Pizza is the culinary star of Broad Street, in my opinion. My wife doesn't like pizza, but if it's from Rosa's, she will happily devour as much as she can. During lunchtime, the line will fold over itself like a slice of New York's yummiest, then head out the door and down the block. It moves pretty quickly, though, and it's worth the wait.

There's a Starbucks a block away, but Saxby's Coffee is right here on Broad Street, and has the same array of beverages with the additional virtue of not being Starbucks. It's a chain, yes, but at least it's not THAT chain. Right next door, there's a Moe's Southwest Grill. And if you walk along the tiny alley leading to Peachtree Street, you'll pass through a charming bronze sculptural archway that appears to be made of books.

On the other hand, this is the heart of downtown and it's where most of the edible trash is, so you'll likely see someone checking the top layers of trash cans in search of a scrounged meal, or asking you for help so that they can avoid doing that. There's generally a city or GSU campus police officer nearby, though.
