5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is a huge variety to eat out close to campus. You can pretty much find whatever. It's nice because there are cheap options, but also more expensive (quality foods)

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: J-Dawgs and India Palace are both gems--and both near campus. There's a lot of fast food too.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is a nice selection of different types of food. Not a lot of ethnic food, but lots of niche type restaurants that are really good at one thing.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of really cool places that are very specific to the Provo area that I love. I am vegetarian, and I feel like there are enough options for me to be able to enjoy myself and still have the pleasure of eating out.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Average cost, moderately convenient. I haven't encountered any student discounts. Some good variety. My favorite restaurant is the El Salvador restaurant on Center Street.

Provo has a plethora of great restaurants. Any type of chain restaurant can be found here, and there are also lots of good little local places. If you are coming from a place without great Mexican food, you are in luck, because there are plenty of authentic Mexican and South American restaurants.

Fridays and Saturdays bring out the crowds, so the most popular places can get crowded. Also, families in Utah County tend to be large, and lots of people don't leave their kids home; don't be surprised to be seated next to a toddler. The Utah clean air act prohibits smoking in any restaurant; it is a sure tip-off that you are from out-of-state if you ask for non-smoking. There are plenty of great little restaurants, so don't be afraid to tread off the beaten path and explore new cuisines!
