Food Trucks

"Evansville has such a great food truck culture with a wide variety of options from a double-decker pizza bus (the double-decker bus was shipped from London!) to Chinese and everything in between! It is a fun way to try so many different foods, spend time with friends, and find new places around Evansville to hang out because they are always in new locations!" - Kennedy W.

Honey Moon Coffee Co.

"I enjoy going to Honey Moon Coffee Co. because I can go and work on homework, socialize with my friends, and get good coffee." - Alyson C.

Los Bravos and Franklin Lanes

"Los Bravos is AMAZING! The staff is so nice, the food is great, and you can get a discount if you show your student ID! I also enjoy bowling at Franklin Lanes with my friends!" - Tamia S.

Milk Barn

"One of my favorite places is the Milk Barn! They just moved into the old Read St. BBQ building and have the best fire cakes (like donuts but better) and lavender lemonade supplied by Joe Breski. Locally owned and growing fast!" - Elizabeth B.

Orange Leaf

"They have several different options of frozen yogurt: dairy and non-dairy. They have so many toppings! Plus, they have really cool seating!" - Emma A.

Panera Bread
