As back to school nerves set in, Craigslist furniture shopping frustrates and course selection overwhelms, cooking your own meals is the last thing you want to worry about. Let us help you find the best food near SFU. Though a few can be found on the Burnaby mountain SFU campus, most are located nearby, off campus. Here are 5 of our top picks when it comes to good food near SFU:
Address: Corner Stone | 9055 University High St Unit 108, Burnaby
Local favourite, Uncle Fatih’s, has an outpost on Burnaby mountain serving up their satisfying ‘za to hungry students. Located by Timmy Ho’s and freshly made every day and all day, Uncle Fatih’s will satisfy the pickiest pizza eaters. Open until 11 pm every night, you’ll be able to fuel your late night study sessions here. Personally, we love the Ground Beef and Blue Cheese variety but rest assured, there’s plenty of vegetarian options too.

Guadalupe Handmade Burritos
Address: Maggie Benston Centre Food Court | 8888 University Dr., Burnaby
For an authentic Tex-Mex burrito fix, check out Guadalupe. The tortillas are hand made, in house and the fillings are fresh and innovative. Gaudalupe only uses 100% antibiotic-free beef, chicken and pork raised without any added hormones. The Treehugger option is for all you vegans out there! Our insider tip is to order the burrito bowl with the hand made, wood-fired tortillas on the side.
