In Clarksville, there are a few grocery stores and a few dozen restaurants, varying from American to Chinese cuisine. Some of the food places include El Molcajete, China Fun, Pasta Grill, and South Park Restaurant. There are numerous amounts of food options, but the only restaurants that are healthy or offer a vegetarian option are Larry’s Pizza and Subway. The prices are very reasonable, and the majority is less than a block away from the University of the Ozarks.
A lot of students enjoy traveling to restaurants in Fort Smith, Little Rock, Russellville, and other towns around the college, as well. There is not much of a kosher selection of food, since all that is available is processed meat and rarely fresh ingredients. The fast food selection ranges from ordinary joints like McDonald’s and Taco Bell to Waffle House. Finding something to eat past midnight is rare, due to the early closings in town. During the semester, locations like El Molcajete and Pasta Grill occasionally cater the University when the cafeteria is being used for special events on campus. When students are not studying, on the weekends they choose to hang out at a few of the popular local eateries.
