Off-Campus Dining

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: We don't have a lot of options. We have a Taco Bell, McDonalds, Jacks, Subway, Dominoes, Pizza Hut, and a Sonic that closes at 10:00. The entire town shuts down at 12:00 on the week nights.

Off-Campus Dining: Taco bell would be the best

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: We only have McDonalds, Taco Bell, Jacks and like one other. One of the restaurant is open late but the others close fairly early. They're very close to the campus and easy to get too, but most people just drive. The choices are not healthy at all but they do fit budgets very well. As a Kinesiology major I take health seriously, but these options are not healthy.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Henderson is a small town, mostly available is fast food. Taco Bell and McDonalds are the only late night places open in Henderson.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: We have a Taco Bell, McDonald's, Burger King, Sonic, Subway, China King, and Bell's Drive In (Burgers)

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

With the exception of a few fast food places and individually-owned "mom and pop" restaurants, there isn't much to eat off campus in Henderson. If a student wants more options, he or she usually goes to Jackson, which is 30 minutes away. Most students don't mind the drive, though, because there is so little to do in Henderson. 

While Henderson has Besso's coffee, Jackson has Starbucks. Henderson has Subway, while Jackson has Jason's Deli. McDonald's is the go-to fast food restaurant in Henderson, but Jackson has Chick-fil-A, Arby's, Popeye's, and many more. So, much off-campus dining is not done in Henderson, where FHU is located, but in Jackson. However, Henderson does boast Bell's, which has "the best burgers this side of Heaven."
