4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: Love all the different places to eat and most offer student discounts.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: My favorite restaurant is Cheddars and Old Chicago.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There have been quite a few restaurants built in the last year or so specifically catering to the college population. Cost and convenience is excellent.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: You have all of the ususal suspects as far as fast food goes. There are plenty of local restaurants. They do a pretty good job at getting it right as far as what the locals want. As for what the college students want, I think they do a decent job here in the Boro. They try. Many of them are owned by older men and women, who have been serving the same things for years. Its hard for them to change. As for prices, I think most of these restaurants do a pretty good job. None of the restaurants are over priced. They're very reasonable. I think some of them could do a better job as far as their quality and their vegan- vegetarian selections.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

As the city of Murfreesboro expands, so do the dining options. A few years ago, this section would have been given a lower grade, as most of the restaurants were located along Old Fort Parkway and were less than convenient to get to. Today, you no longer have to drive through downtown and across Broad Street—which has the longest light in town—to get a bite to eat. The increase of apartments around campus and the Walmart on Northfield have been the antagonists to the increased restaurant development.

Things are changing so much in this small town—restaurants are moving around, new ones are popping up every day, and the variety of food offered has greatly increased in recent years. There are several Mexican, Italian, Chinese, and Greek restaurants, as well as Thai, Indian, and Caribbean. Since finding something to do in Murfreesboro can be a struggle, going out to eat is an easy solution. La Siesta Mexican Restaurant is a favorite place for students to study, meet, dine, and drink.
