As far as food goes, fast food tends to rank pretty low on the food chain (no pun intended). If, however, you are a big fan of the wraps the Piedmont Caf serves and the caf isn’t open, Great Wraps makes a great substitute.

The place is typically not very busy, so it makes for a quiet room filled in with a quiet television. When you walk in, you are greeted and your order is immediately taken. 

In addition to wraps, Great Wraps also offers a selection of salads, hot sub and flat bread sandwiches and fruit smoothies. It’s a great choice when you want a great sandwich, but don’t want as much bread. To make the meal a combo, with  a medium drink and a side like a bag of chips or fries, it’s an extra $1.95, which isn’t the best deal I’ve ever heard.

I chose the Santa Fe wrap, which had grilled chicken, cheddar cheese, bacon, lettuce and tomato. The wrap was warm and tasty, although the sauce was a little overwhelming in terms of the amount used. It made some of the contents of the wrap a little soggy. 

I must commend the staff for allowing my friends and me to stay. We arrived near closing time, and they allowed us to stay almost ten minutes after. They were very friendly and polite. 

It isn’t fine dining by any means, but if you enjoy wraps or sandwiches, Great Wraps is a pretty good choice if you’re on a typical college student’s budget.
