Recession Specials Hit Houston

Eat fresh. And now cheap... ish.

Eat fresh. And now cheap... ish.

Penn Dining recently sent out an email ever-so-kindly pointing out meals to be had on-campus for under $6. (Which only makes the yearly meal plan push even harder to bite into.) I’m all for cheaper eats, but I do wonder what motivated the email. Is Subway concerned about our thinning wallets? Or has there been a drop-off in customers? But wouldn’t a college campus provide a steady customer base, even amidst economic woes? Or — gasp! — have we begun cooking?

All I know is that if Subway’s $5-foot long subs are here to stay, its awful jingle should have to go.

See Penn Dining’s deals after the jump.
