Off-Campus Dining: Expensive and Affordable – There are quite a few options around that are pretty good quality food and affordable. Lots of both fastfood and nice chains. There are also lots of more expensive and fancy restaurant around. I have not personally been to many, but I have heard about them. Many of them are within 10 - 20 minutes from campus. You can find even more within an hour radius. For a cheap and quick meal there is a Chic-fil-a that gives students a discount on Fridays and another that gives discounts on Saturdays.

Except for people who enjoy taking a long walk to their dinner, there are no restaurants within walking distance from campus. However, with the help of a car, there is a large number of dining options just minutes from the school. Whether you want cheap and fast or fancy and expensive, Temple Terrace has food for a poor college student who's tired of cafeteria food. The area even holds many exotic cuisines such as Cilantro, which serves Indian food, and Vallarta's, which offers authentic Mexican fare. Chipotle and the Old World Cheese Shop are FC student favorites.

Temple Terrace is full of dining options for every occasion; whether it be a quick bite before curfew or a fancy dinner on a date, all are within a reasonable distance and price range. With the USF campus nearby, many restaurants on Fowler Avenue even offer student discounts (if students inquire about them). Stop in at the Old World Cheese Shop for a made-to-order sandwich, and don't forget to try the humongous stuffed baked potatoes served at Jason's Deli. Looking for healthy and delicious fast food? It really does exist! Go to Evos, where they serve fresh, healthy, organic burgers and milkshakes, with your choice of chips and ketchup flavor.
