Off-Campus Dining: I haven't really eaten off campus much

Off-Campus Dining: Worcester is very diverse and traditional, so not many fast food restaurants are available. Mostly 'home made' style cuisines. These restaurants are in walking (5-10 minutes) form the campus. Some are relatively cheap while others are a bit pricy.

Off-Campus Dining: There is about two blocks of commercial area in walking distance. This contains about two restaurants and a frozen yogurt place. One restaurant takes "Bonus Points" from the meal plan as payment, which is a convenient option.

There is a variety of restaurants within walking distance from campus. The student favorite is easily the Boynton. However, the Sole Proprietor is a good choice for a high-end meal. For variety, there is also Dragon Dynasty, a cheap Asian place, within walking distance, as well.

The Boynton is a student favorite for many reasons: it's reasonably priced, has good variety, and students can also use their bonus points from their meal plans. The Boynton is a good place to go to use up those last bonus points at the end of the term. If students want to eat farther from campus, the best choice is the Saturday shuttle that goes to Blackstone Valley. Blackstone Valley has great variety, including many major chains such as Applebee's and Red Robin. The burgers at Red Robin are always a favorite, mostly due to the bottomless fries.
