After exams, you might find yourself looking for a place to wine and dine with your classmates.

Don’t go farther than Perkins Road, because there are plenty of great places to eat and drink near campus. 

Closest to campus is The Strip, where you can fiesta with a margarita and taco from Fuzzy’s Taco Shop, two-step your way to a beer at Outlaws, hustle those pool sharks at J.R. Murphy’s and end the night with a fresh sandwich from Jimmy John’s, which by the way delivers for free.

Also, you could even fit a delicious hot dog from a stand called Dirty Curty into your tasty evening. 

Really looking to step up your game?  Head on down to Main Street where you will find Zannotti’s Wine Bar to quench your more intellectual thirst; Brooklyn’s Restaurant, a high-quality comfort food eatery that serves $5 burgers on Monday nights; Louie’s Bar and Grill for well-priced American food; and Finnegan’s Pub, a cozy bar that offers the biggest beer selection in Stillwater. 

Wait, is it the third Friday of the month?  Better check out food truck Friday on Seventh and Main Street for a wide, made-to-order food selection and live music to enjoy.

Still hungry or thirsty?  Go sip on a cheap double special from Stonewall Tavern, enjoy a tasty dish from Thai Cafe tucked away on Husband Street, grab an Asian dish from Café 88 just by campus, or scarf down a gyro at Nikki’s Greek restaurant. 

If you are still looking for that taste of home, Stillwater offers some of your favorite chain restaurants including Olive Garden, Red Lobster, Chili’s and Texas Roadhouse.

Last, but certainly not least, are the Stillwater originated Joe’s restaurants including Eskimo Joe’s, Mexico Joe’s, and MoJo's, all offering up a unique taste for the Stillwater sentimental customer.

Do not think that eating on campus is your only option.  This is not just a college town, so get out there and grab a taste of Stillwater.
