Various eateries are scattered around UTEP. Each restaurant represents the area's unique touch, with every corner revealing something different, like a small pizzeria or a steakhouse. Sushi eateries are popular around campus, as well, along with fast food restaurants. Students can choose from a wide variety, and all restaurants are within walking distance from school, so setting up a date after class with a special someone is pretty easy.
Recently, UTEP finished constructing a building that houses restaurants for students and residents. Prices vary at these eateries, but they are generally affordable and not exaggerated. The atmosphere is very active and friendly off campus, so making new friends is not a difficult task. If you say hello to a stranger in El Paso, the greeting is usually returned. Feel free to walk around and take a look into each restaurant. Generally, restaurants are located within walking distance from campus and also from each other. You can eat crawfish at Crawdaddy’s or change your mind and have some steak at Dane’s Steakhouse across the street.
