4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are many places where people can go to eat off campus. I think it's great.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is a Waba Grill down the street which is always a great option and for a late night option In-N-Out usually stays open pretty late. The cost, convenience, discounts, and variety are all great

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Chipotle, Chic fil a, Krispy Kreme, and many more. A lot of good places very close. Both chain and small restaurants.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: La Mirada is not the most flavorful city, but students get by. There are a lot of late night options and if you like donuts, pho, or Taco Bell, you're in luck. But there are a lot of good restaurants if you're willing to drive 15 minutes or so. Really good Thai place, tons of boba, some really good pizza places. And it's not too far for a day trip into LA... Grand Central Market here we come!

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Haven't done much of it because the school provides enough of what I need, but when I do go off campus, I'm not dissatisfied.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Biola's campus offers a variety of different foods to choose from in the cafeteria, Eagles' Nest, and Common Grounds, but when some of those things get old (especially after your sixth Eagles' burger in a week), students tend to start looking for meals off campus to satiate their hunger. Being located right next to a suburban area, there are plenty of fast food places within spitting distance. Taco Bell and McDonald's are both within a five-minute walk from campus. In addition, slightly "classier" places like Panera Bread and In-N-Out Burger (one of Southern California's biggest bragging rights) are other nearby choices. There are also very nice vegetarian restaurants nearby that are usually family-owned. 

If students have friends with cars, whole new worlds are opened, as now they can travel to the Brea Mall, where restaurants like The Cheesecake Factory, BJ's Restaurant, Claim Jumper, and Olive Garden await them. These tend to be pricier, but a lot of students flock to these hot spots for special occasions. Off-campus restaurants are in no way too far to travel to, the farthest of the aforementioned being about four miles away, and are, for the most part, really affordable for a college student's wallet. The biggest problem students will face will be finding a car to transport them.
