The Greater Lafayette area boasts hundreds of restaurants catering to every food preference imaginable. Students seem more impressed with restaurants that are near the Purdue campus such as Jake’s, McDonald's, and Panda Express. Since these restaurants are so close to Purdue, it sometimes seems that they’re on-campus dining rather than off-campus dining. There are some distinctive restaurants around Purdue as well, such as Harry’s Chocolate Shop and Triple XXX. These spots are distinctive Purdue landmarks and hold a special place in many students' memories. While their food may not necessarily be student favorites, every Purdue student makes sure to pay a visit to these places at least once during their college years.
If you want to head to Lafayette’s more upscale dining locations, it’ll require a car, which can be a deterrent to freshmen without transportation. Some of the nicer restaurants, such as Bistro 501 and Lafayette Brewing Company, can be quite pricey for those on a budget; however, there are plenty of unique burger joints within walking distance of the central campus that are affordable and popular student hangouts. Restaurants serving ethnic food such as Chinese, Korean, and Indian tend to be highly overpriced and thus are not as popular as places like McDonald's and Burger King.
