Menomonie has all of the food a college student craves—fast food, bar food, classy food, healthy food, and college food. Many establishments, including the local favorites, are within walking distance from campus. Some of the chains and fast food options are located in north Menomonie, a 5-to-10-minute drive uptown. The pricing is within a college student's budget. If Menomonie is missing anything, it would be a good ol' breakfast place within walking distance from campus, as well as a Thai food restaurant.
The six places not to miss would be Jeff's Pizza Shop, Zanzibar, Legacy Chocolates, Acoustic Café, and the Raw Deal. Consider this your checklist of food to eat before you leave Stout. You can get grocery items at a few places in Menomonie. Walmart is the cheapest, but with a limited selection. Marketplace Foods is the fanciest with the best quality.
