3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The town is small, so there isn't a huge variety, but many places will give student discounts.

Off-Campus Dining: Mostly fast food joints like Macdonalds.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of chain restaurants, like Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, Domino's, etc. These are great in a pinch and are probably two blocks from campus. On top of the chain restaurants, there are a couple restaurants unique to the area. Everyone knows to eat at least once at the Taco Bus, and there are just different more formal restaurants around town too.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: It is almost all fast food chains. Everything closes at 10 pm. I like one of a kind higher quality places and none of them are here.

Off-Campus Dining: It's pretty much summed up in my answer from the previous question. It really is "an endless repetition of the same few places".

Considering the size of Rexburg, there are a ton of off-campus food options. Many students are on a tight budget and stick primarily to purchasing food from grocery stores and then make their own meals. But it’s not uncommon for students to eat out a couple of times a week, especially on the weekends when students want to get out and socialize with friends. Rexburg has plenty of cheap meal options from fast food chains like McDonald's, Taco Bell, and KFC. There are also other locally owned restaurants unique to Rexburg that provide a good variety in cultural and dessert dishes. For example, G’s Dairy Delights, The Cocoa Bean, Original Thai, and Ramirez Mexican Food.

The majority of Rexburg restaurants are located on or near Main Street, which makes it easy to walk to and not far from other entertainment locations in Rexburg. For student discounts at several of the local restaurants, students can purchase the starving student card for $20. This is an accordion-style card with hundreds of deals offered by local businesses. They’re usually sold at the BYU-I bookstore and sometimes sales reps will visit apartments and sell the cards door-to-door. The deals from these cards give students plenty of reasons to visit a variety of restaurants and experience different meal choices.
