3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I like the off-campus food options. There's a good balance between chain restaurants and local restaurants as well. Most options advertise student discounts. There are always school-related fundraisers at the restaurants. The cost is average, and fit for students on a budget. The restaurants are within walking distance from campus. My favorites are Starbucks, Pizza Rev, and Get Shaved.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: There is a lot of variety. Some are close enough to walk to.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Close, easy to go to, and cheap to eat.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The off campus dining has a variety of options. If you go further down the street towards Granada hills there is a street that fills up with different food trucks of different kinds.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of off campus dining near by the campus. There are several different kinds of food options as well. The cost is much better than inside the campus, so if you have time to eat off-campus in between classes, I would suggest that. there are also several places around campus that offer student discounts.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

If you're ever hungry for some off-campus food, you're in luck. With great prices and variety, students' only problem is deciding which restaurant to eat at. Choosing between Thai, Indian, rotisserie chicken, Japanese, sub sandwiches, Mediterranean, Mexican, Argentinean, and burgers can be difficult. Many of the restaurants are on Reseda Boulevard, which is within walking distance of CSUN, so many students decide to eat off campus if they have a break between classes. Restaurants close to CSUN usually offer a 10 percent discount, so don't forget to flash your student ID card before you pay, because chances are, they won't remind you. Many of these restaurants are locally owned, and the average price for a meal is about $6, which makes eating out on a student budget quite doable. The majority of restaurants also has lunch specials.

Restaurants run the gamut from fast food to healthy, and there's always something for whatever mood you're in. For late-night dining, check out Denny's, and for late-night studying, head over to Starbucks. When parents come into town, check out the California Chicken, or when you want to watch the game, head over to Chili's, but when you want to be out late drinking sake bombs, the only place is Shogun Sushi. Unfortunately, there aren't many romantic sit-down places to take someone. The majority of the restaurants has seat-yourself dining.
