5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of good off-campus options at walking distance and a reasonable price. You can also use the frog bucks included in your meal plan in most of them for convenience.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is a lot of really good food but not a whole ton of variety. Blue Sushi is amazing but can get pricy, same with Kona Grill. Bravo is really good for Italian food, and Cafe Bella is a really good BYOB italian restaurant.

Off-Campus Dining: I haven't gone out much but when I have I enjoyed a delicious thing of chips and queso at Fuzzies and have heard of a lot of great restaurants around town. Pizza Snob is my favorite.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Fort Worth offers several nearby off-campus dining options. Students who can't find something to eat in the dining halls have a number of options-many within walking distance. The number of 24-hour restaurants gives students another late-night dining option. With many student favorites so close to campus, it isn't hard to get off campus for a good meal-even on a college budget.

Most restaurants in Fort Worth specialize in American or Mexican cuisine. However, it is still possible to find excellent restaurants around that prepare food from different regions. Off-campus dining makes up for the flaws in the campus dining facilities, and also gives students a variety of options that are otherwise non-existent on campus.
