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.

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The off campus dining is located pretty far away. The places close to the campus are run down and are pretty bad places to go eat. The off campus dining is best if you get on highway 75 and go near the new target complex near the edge of the city closer to denison

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There isn't a lot around Austin College that is good quality. Directly in sherman there is a sonic, a taco bell, dominos pizza and some pretty cheap cafes. If you are able to get off campus and go ten minutes up the highway there is way more food. Chipotle, panda express, red lobster. If you really want to go someplace nice mckinney which is like a 40 minute drive has very good restaurants. It all depends on how far you are willing to travel

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Yo, if you are familiar with the dining scene here in Northwest Texas, you already know what you're getting into. I consider a foodie; this basically means that I LOVE good food. I know this sets me apart from many people, but even if you're tempted to write me off as a nutcase, just trust me: the food is very average.

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.
