Local eateries offer discounts

We’ve all been there: You want to eat somewhere other than Sodexo for a change, but you do not want to spend the little money  you have left after paying for books, supplies and tuition. Luckily, Spokane has many venues that offer special discounts for students. These eateries provide yummy treats without taking too much money out of your wallet (provided that said wallet has a student identification in it).  

Bruchi’s Cheesesteaks & Subs

From subs to salads to burgers, this casual restaurant has a little bit of everything. Bruchi’s offers a fun atmosphere and cheap food. Avoid large groups here, though; there’s not much space.
