Right across the street from campus, on the other side of I-35, lies the strip center of fast-food chains known as Fast-food Row, including Fazoli's, Taco Cabana, and McAlister's Deli. Even closer to campus is Dubl-R Burgers. In terms of eating off campus, the amount of choices and their variation are aplenty, even for a medium-sized city.
The saddest thing about Baylor students is that many of them won't explore the privately-owned, non-chain dining options off campus. There are a million little places all over Waco, some of which are owned and operated by Baylor alumni, that are fantastic. The most popular places are regularly packed if you try to go during the dinner rush, either because of reputation or because most students aren't willing to pay $7 and risk food poisoning in a place they've never heard of. The plus side to having so many of the chains is that you're offered the consistency of regular restaurants whose specials and atmosphere are always predictable. The biggest perk about living in a college town, especially one where there really isn't a whole lot to do in terms of nightlife, is that the restaurants do their best to make up for what everything else lacks.
