As a former VT student, Gillies is a favorite spot to visit. It's hard to find quality vegetarian food in the south, but Gillies delivers! Wonderful selection, great atmosphere, kind employees, and a chill laid-back environment. Prices are not bad and selection is great.

I always come here for lunch when visiting Tech. The food is wholesome and delicious. The place is a little rundown, the bathroom could definitely use a major upgrade.
