Off-Campus Dining

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: I have been to some local spots around the campus and they have all seemed great so far; I still have more spots to check out in order to give the off-campus dining a 5-star rating.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I've never eaten off-campus before so I am going to say that it is okay

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of eating locations outside of campus which may be in walking distance, biking distance, or better yet, easy to get too by taking an uber. However, these eating places are mostly fast food chains and weird asian places I'd never heard of.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The usual take out is open pretty much 24/7, student discounts are only at the places surrounding the schools perimeter. There are no campus bars off campus other than Yardhouse, but that is a restaurant.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is not to many places to go to but there is a variety of foods to eat.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

If you're ever hungry for some off-campus food, you're in luck. With great prices and variety, students' only problem is deciding which restaurant to eat at. Choosing between Thai, Indian, rotisserie chicken, Japanese, sub sandwiches, Mediterranean, Mexican, Argentinean, and burgers can be difficult. Many of the restaurants are on Reseda Boulevard, which is within walking distance of CSUN, so many students decide to eat off campus if they have a break between classes. Restaurants close to CSUN usually offer a 10 percent discount, so don't forget to flash your student ID card before you pay, because chances are, they won't remind you. Many of these restaurants are locally owned, and the average price for a meal is about $6, which makes eating out on a student budget quite doable. The majority of restaurants also has lunch specials.

Restaurants run the gamut from fast food to healthy, and there's always something for whatever mood you're in. For late-night dining, check out Denny's, and for late-night studying, head over to Starbucks. When parents come into town, check out the California Chicken, or when you want to watch the game, head over to Chili's, but when you want to be out late drinking sake bombs, the only place is Shogun Sushi. Unfortunately, there aren't many romantic sit-down places to take someone. The majority of the restaurants has seat-yourself dining.
