3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of options, but you have to be careful where you go because many restaurants are gross. They pass their inspections, but I don't know how. I have eaten at many restaurants and only two or three have not made me sick. Also, the customer service in general is poor all over town. Students get a 'student survival kit' which includes coupons, but the food is still expensive for what it is.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: I love each and every off-campus dining "facility" (restaurant) I have eaten at. The are all very tasty, manageable cost, and definitely a plus for me, very very vegan friendly. My favorite is probably Cafe Yumm, which has multiple locations around Eugene.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining is AMAZING! You can usually find something for everyone and most streets near campus have lots of cheap, yet still high quality, options. Caspians, Sweet Basil Express, Brail's, Studio One Cafe(!!!!!!!), Rennie's Yogurt Extreme, Peach Wave, Taylor's, Falafel Cart, Dough Co., Off the Waffle, etc. the list goes on and on and on and.....

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Not anything to brag about, I'm Vietnamese so the Asian cuisine isn't huge, but there are enough options to keep things interesting.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are several hoppin' restaurants, mostly ethnic cuisine, near UO, and several more tasty options in the downtown area and near the various malls.

Eugene is filled with eateries to serve a wide variety of tastes. For those wishing to indulge in grease, all the fast food restaurants are a short walk from campus. For a more classy experience, Beppe & Gianni's is a definite hot spot for great Italian food and a wide selection of wines. Eugene also offers good Mexican food at Chapala or Burrito Boy, the student favorite. The Glenwood is a great place to eat for all types of cuisine, especially breakfast.

The beauty of Eugene is in its local spots and mom-and-pop restaurants. From a steak at Steelhead to a scramble at the Glenwood, there's a little something for everyone. There's even a selection of organic restaurants and local chains. With a flavor and taste for any appetite, it's difficult to complain about Eugene's array of dining.
