3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are many off campus dining options to choose from, however if you don't have a form of transportation then only few are within walking distance from campus. There are many places that do offer student discounts.

Off-Campus Dining: Check out El Herradero it's great Mexican food for a really good price. Buddies is also a phenomenal Italian restaurant with the best salad you will ever have but is a bit spendy in comparison to other Pocatello restaurants. The CoHo has a good atmosphere as does the college market. Goodies has great sandwiches and good lunchtime specials. Elmer's has great food and phenomenal service.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: My favorite nearby restaurants are Goody's and El Herradero. They have great deals every day. Many restaurants around town also offer student discounts if you have your Bengal Card with you!

Students definitely have their favorite eating joints in Pocatello. Everybody pretty much goes to the same place, usually Goody's. And while there is a wide variety of places to eat in Pocatello, the romantic fine-dining setting is a tough one to find. While there is definitely gratitude for what's here, there could certainly be more. So unless your girlfriend enjoys a candle-lit dinner at McDonald's, which has been done before, don't count on finding too much romance in Pocatello cuisine.

Fast food is the cheap way to go in Pocatello. Choices include Wendy's, McDonald's, Burger King, Taco Bell, Subway, Arby's, Taco John's, and many others. For dining in, the city offers the popular Applebee's, Winger's, Red Lobster, Sizzler, and more. As far as student hot spots off campus, Buddy's is the place to be to hang out and get good spaghetti. The sandwiches at Goody's also make it a popular restaurant, usually crammed with people during lunch. Jimmy John's offers subs with fresh bread and their signature "free smells." In Pocatello, there is dining for any taste.
