Tallahassee is home to more than 60,000 students attending Florida A&M University, Florida State University and Tallahassee Community College. This is a town full of energetic young adults always looking for a quick bite.

One of the city’s most popular food joints for the college crowd is Prime Time, located at 1921 W. Tennessee St. It is rated 4.3 on Facebook based on 703 reviews.

Prime Time was established in 2012.  Its menu is full of mouth-watering entrees, from ribs to wings, and the always tempting seven-cheese macaroni, a personal favorite.

Prime Time also has a bar that brings in large crowds on game days.

Jaden Vilvert a third-year sociology student at FAMU, said:  “Prime Time is the perfect place for college students.”

Prime Time specializes in wings with a staggering 12 sauce selection. You can choose between jumbo traditional, boneless and breaded, and duck wings. If you prefer hand helds, it offers a chicken waffle, pulled pork and prime rib sandwiches.

“As a vegan, I appreciate the wide variety Prime Time offers,” Emmanual Child, a senior graphic design student at FAMU, said.

Prime Time has more than 70 items on its menu catering to anyone from vegetarians to meat lovers.

Now to the star of the show, the “After Hours” burger which includes Angus beef, sharp cheddar cheese, bacon and a fried egg.

I waited patiently for about 20 minutes until my order came out. My burger was served to me on a white glass plate with thin-cut crispy golden truffle fries on the side.

With my first bite, I  immediately knew I made the right choice. The meat was juicy, the bacon was crispy, and the bun was freshly toasted. Not to mention the truffle fries, which were cooked to perfection.

I was completely satisfied. The service was immaculate. Hopefully, you will get the jovial, welcoming treatment I got as no wish went unfulfilled, no matter how minor.

Prime Time gives you a fun, cozy atmosphere while being able to enjoy your friends’ company as well as a delicious plate of food.

“I love being able to come here with friends and just forget about the day,” said Travon Mincey, a third-year occupational therapy student at FAMU.

If you have the time to sit down and enjoy a meal, stop by  Prime Time and grab a bite.
