3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of fast food and locally owned restaurants, but most close around 10pm.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The restaurants near school include Jacks, Taco Bell, Burger King, McDonalds, Sonic, and Pizza Hut. Most of these are cheap, unhealthy fast food chains. Most restaurants offer student discounts and are low priced. If you want to have more variety, you must drive to Jackson, which is 30 minutes away.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Being a small town, there are plenty of nice local places, like Belle's Diner and Snookum's Steakhouse, and also a few chain fast food restaurants. Jackson also has great variety.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The food selection is mostly fast food, but is open late. All within walking distance.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Henderson has Taco Bell, Mcdonalds, Burger King, Jacks, Chow Wagon, The LunchBox, Bells, and Sonic. We also have a new restaurant called Greens Beans and Taters, and another one called Doesn't Matter. There's also Pizza Hut, Dominos, China King, and Subway, but that's it.

With the exception of a few fast food places and individually-owned "mom and pop" restaurants, there isn't much to eat off campus in Henderson. If a student wants more options, he or she usually goes to Jackson, which is 30 minutes away. Most students don't mind the drive, though, because there is so little to do in Henderson. 

While Henderson has Besso's coffee, Jackson has Starbucks. Henderson has Subway, while Jackson has Jason's Deli. McDonald's is the go-to fast food restaurant in Henderson, but Jackson has Chick-fil-A, Arby's, Popeye's, and many more. So, much off-campus dining is not done in Henderson, where FHU is located, but in Jackson. However, Henderson does boast Bell's, which has "the best burgers this side of Heaven."
