University of Missouri’s Shakespeare’s Pizza Wins Best College Food Contest

There are a few things that are inherent to any college campus: students, books, beer and greasy college grub. Just recently, ABC’s Good Morning America launched a “Best Bites: College Edition” challenge, where students voted for their favorite campus grub. In fact, more than 20,000 people voted for the best college food in America.

The competition was fierce, the food was greasy and Good Morning America’s co-anchor and judge, Ron Claiborne was quite stuffed following his cross country food fest.

Here is a look at the college culinary final four:

The Brent Nelson Sandwich from Bethany College. This smoky cheesy sausage sandwich topped with barbecue sauce comes from the campus eatery, the Ol’ Stuga, a local favorite which built its reputation on making delicious specialty sandwiches.

The Fat Doboy Sandwich from the kitchen of Sandwich University at West Virginia University. This mind-boggling sandwich contains steak, chicken tenders, American cheese, fried mozzarella sticks, bacon, French fries, mayonnaise, and ketchup all stuffed and overflowing in a hoagie roll.

The Chef’s Omelet at Camellia Grill in the French Quarter of Louisiana. At this local stop, Tulane and Loyola University students come to put aside college rivalries and find camaraderie through food. The Chef’s Omelet is packed with turkey, homemade chili, bacon, cheese, onions and hash brown potatoes. The Camellia Grill boasts that its diner-like grub is serious brain food and promises that all customers who feast on their dishes will graduate from college.

Shakespeare’s Pizza from the University of Missouri contains everything but breakfast cereal. Topped with meats, cheeses, veggies on top of a doughy crust, college students and locals swear by Shakespeare’s famed pizza.

The winner of Good Morning America’s College grub challenge: Shakespeare’s Pizza.
