Elon to add Biscuitville and Qdoba for fall 2013

Students will enjoy two new on-campus dining options for the upcoming academic year.

Dining options at Elon University will expand this fall with two new retail restaurants and the completion of the food court in Lakeside Dining Hall.

The Winter Garden Café, which opened in Lakeside last winter, will be completed with the addition of Biscuitville and Topio’s, which join the previously opened Freshii.

Biscuitville is a locally owned restaurant specializing in Southern comfort food. Biscuitville is best known for its family biscuit recipe prepared by hand every 20 minutes in front of customers. Pork sausage, griddle-cooked bacon, Southern-fried chicken and local country ham are the most popular items. Healthy alternatives include whole wheat English Muffins and turkey sausage. Sides include seasoned country fries and hashbrowns.

Biscuitville will be open in the Winter Garden Café from 7 a.m. to late evening daily. Traditional breakfast items will be available all day and additional lunch and dinner options will include an Angus burger, turkey burger, grilled chicken sandwich and chicken tenders. All lunch and dinner options are available on a delicious Biscuitville biscuit. Owned by the Jennings family, which has long and distinguished ties with Elon University, Biscuitville was founded in 1966 in Burlington, N.C., and now operates 58 locations in North Carolina and Virginia.

Topio’s is an Aramark-brand concept offering fresh-baked pizza, salads, breadsticks and other Italian specialties.

Freshii, a Toronto-based company, is a healthy food concept offering custom-built, fresh and healthy salads, burritos, wraps, rice bowls, yogurts and soups.

Daniel Commons, located in the Danieley Center residential neighborhood, will feature a Qdoba Mexican Grill. Qdoba borrows from the Oaxaca, Veracrus and Yucatan regions of Mexico to create fresh and flavorful cuisine prepared exhibition-style in full view of the customer. Menu items include 1.25-pound burritos, grilled quesadillas, nachos and a variety of tacos.
