4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is all types of food off campus that is good to eat. The brewery is my favorite because of the wood fired pizza.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining is pretty good. There are more places to eat then where I am from and for a smaller town, they have a fairly good variety.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are lot of great restaurants.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are quite a few chain restaurants that are all pretty good but they get boring. There are a couple "hippie" places around. They're alright if you're into that kind of food, but you'll pay more for it. There are some great hole in the wall kind of places, but again they're usually more expensive or harder to get find.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: I don't go out much and haven't had the need to really check out what 'other' restaurants are available

Bozeman has the best options for inexpensive dining in a college town, hands down. La Parrilla, a wrap place with some of the strangest (and yummiest) combinations available, has been voted the best restaurant in Bozeman. Salmon wraps, Thai curry wraps, pasta wraps, and just about every other bizarre wrap mixture you can imagine are available here. Watch out for the La Parrilla Challenge at the beginning of each month, when groups have to go on wild scavenger hunts in the hopes of winning the challenge and receiving a month's worth of free wraps.

Due to its late-night hours, the Pita Pit on Main Street is a fun place to go around midnight when hungry partiers and barhoppers can be seen wandering in for a bite. Everyone in Bozeman agrees that Mackenzie River offers the best pizza in town. While it may be a bit pricier than Domino's, it feels like you are eating a real meal, rather than just stuffing some grease into your mouth. Students and Bozeman residents choose the Cateye Café when it comes to breakfast, where the menu holds such delicacies as banana bread French toast and "the Catastrophe": a blend of potatoes, vegetables, eggs, and cheese. Though students do not usually have the cash to eat at Bozeman's nicer dining establishments, many like to take advantage of a parents' visit to try out Looie's Down Under or the Sweet Pea Bakery.
