Variety, variety, and more variety is the best way to describe the restaurants off campus. Most of the restaurants are only 10 minutes from the school. Students will find something that suits their taste buds and have them coming back for more—that is, if another restaurant doesn't grab your interest first. The most popular area for students looking for a place to eat is Boone's Crossing, also known as Chesterfield Valley.
Boone's Crossing has more than 15 restaurants that are all right beside one another, including Applebee's, Red Robin, Olive Garden, HomeTown Buffet, Romano's Macaroni Grill, 54th Street Grill, Jason’s Deli, Emperor's Palace and Old Spaghetti Factory. There are so many restaurants that selecting one may seem overwhelming. Maryville doesn't have places within walking distance, but with car a good restaurant shouldn't take too long to find.
