Off-Campus Dining

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There aren't very many off campus dining options available. Most of them are fast food options that are mostly just fried foods. It is extremely rare to get a student discount, I think I have had one restaurant ever offer it. Things are all close, although all the construction in sherman sometimes can make it hard to get to them. Price is average fast food restaurant price. If you do go to one of the few sit down restaurants for two people its a 30-50 dollar bill depending. It is easy to get bored of the options in sherman: you don't want to have to eat chipotle every single day of the week.

Off-Campus Dining: It has a lot of options near by- however you will have to drive 2 minutes to get there. A lot of known chain restaurants.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Around Austin College you can find a lot of places that give you discounts toward meals. Cheddars I am not sure if they give a discount but it is fairly cheap to eat there especially if you are dining for one or two.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of chains in Sherman, which have cropped up in the new mall. However, there are a lot of hole-in-the-wall restaurants in and around Sherman. To find them, I suggest talking to upper class men.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Decent number of discounts, but discounts are not very heavy. Most restaurants are chains, though at least some are little-known chains (the big ones are all on the highway, the rest on texoma parkway.) A few better options in the neighboring town of Denison. Definitely check out the burrito bus.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Two things you will never do in Sherman are go hungry or be bored from the options. Almost every building you pass by is a restaurant of some sort. Most everything is reasonable in price, and a lot have discounts for AC student. Many places know students and appreciate their business, so do not expect to be looked down on as many younger people are.

While there are many chain restaurants, mostly on the other side of town, you should really pay attention (and patronage) to the local eateries. Sherman has a few diamonds in the form of local places. Burrito Stand, MG's, Little Italy, Kathleen’s Kitchen, Sweetberries, and many other places. These are Sherman institutions, introduced by upperclassmen to freshmen, passed down as faithfully and with as much love as all of the college traditions. It’s a tradition for students to stay up all night for delicious donuts and fresh kolaches (pigs in a blanket) from the local donut shop. When your taste buds want a really good burger, there are at least three diners to choose from, and don't forget the hole-in-the-wall burrito stands that only accept cash but will satisfy your Mexican food cravings.

Convenience will be your only issue with Sherman dining. While part of the charm of Austin College is that it is set apart from the central parts of town, it means that all the restaurants are a few minutes' drive from campus. So, if you want to indulge yourself in Sherman's many eating options, you'll have to use the Roo Route or hop in the car. And, if you want true fine dining, you're going to have to drive 30 to 60 minutes south to McKinney or Dallas.
