Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

If you find that the food on campus is not exactly what you want that day, don’t despair because the off-campus options are strong. There are lots of choices along University Avenue, including Subway, Burger King, Popeyes, McDonald's, Taco Bell, Rally's, and Senor Tequila. Many of the restaurants are within walking distance of campus, while others may take a short car ride. For students who like to eat breakfast or are looking for a dinner spot, Denny's and IHOP are also options. Also, Park Plaza Mall has a food court that includes a Chick-fil-A, pizzeria, and Asian barbecue.

The off-campus dining options here are great spots for students to get together and share what they learned over lunch and laughter. And if you feel like having some off-campus food but don’t want to leave campus (which often seems to be the case with on-campus residents), many restaurants deliver to the University; Jason's Deli and Chi's Cuisine are student delivery favorites. Overall, there isn’t a food shortage near UALR, so food should never be a concern for students here.
