Off-Campus Dining

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Not much ethnic food or vegetarian places, but there are enough places to keep things interesting

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The only things off campus that are considered ethnic are some bad-tasting Mexican cuisine restaurants and some fast food chains.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: For a small town, Danville has some pretty good options for dining if you know where you are looking. A lot of local restaurants are better than you think.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There aren't many restaurants in downtown Danville, but the ones that exist are all really good and reasonably priced. I wish things stayed open a little later (your choices are pretty much Speedway or Speedway after 11PM), but I've had great experiences in Danville.

2 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: Danville KY is known as being a food dessert. The only options being chain, low end fast food restaurants, and several Mexican joints. There aren't even higher end chain options. Lexington KY and Louisville KY are short commutes away and they offer the diversity some may be looking for when it comes to food and night life activities (unique and craft restaurants/bars)

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Off-campus dining can be a treat and is always a welcome break from college food. There are a few gourmet restaurants around Centre's campus, which is fine, because most eateries cater to a college student's budget. Students generally have the same favorites-the Guad, Freddie's, Applebee's)-but agreeing on one can be difficult. Some students' favorite dishes are the fajita nachos at the Guad, eggplant parmesan at Freddie's, and the happy-hour priced chicken quesadillas at Applebee's. Fast food wise, Danville has many, many options, most of which are open late.

Off-campus dining also provides great opportunities to hang out with friends and is an important part of women's Greek recruitment. The welcoming of freshmen by Greek women has almost evolved into sport, and as a freshman, getting invited to multiple weekend meet-and-greet dinners is common. For girls interested in rushing, or just meeting upperclass women, these dinners are essential and fun. Recruitment dinners for Greek men tend to be more low-key, more likely is the trip to Lexington's Hooters for wings. While the selection of off-campus restaurants may not be the best, the fun you'll have just being off campus for an hour is well worth the trip and is a guaranteed good time. Few students turn down an opportunity to head to the Guad with a group of friends, even if they're broke.
