Off-Campus Dining: Go to Thai Express even though it looks like a Wendy's that was abandoned in the apocalypse.

Off-Campus Dining: I love the amount of different food locations here. There are a lot of different food places that I have never heard of before coming here. Defiantly if you come here go to Smokey Bones and one of the Mexican restaurants. Some locations you are able to use your Big Red Dollars as well as get a student discount. Overall its average cost.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There's an old myth that Bowling Green is home to the most restaurants per capita in the country. While this may or may not be true, there are always more food establishments opening in the area, whether it's fast food, chain restaurants, nice sit-down businesses, cheap places, ethnic food, locally-owned eateries—you name it—it's all here!

No matter what students are craving, they can find it, usually pretty close to campus. The owners of these places know that Bowling Green is a college town, so some of them provide a student discount and others allow students to use their Big Red dollars (money put on student IDs) at their restaurants.
