Off campus, the city of Beloit and its surrounding communities have no dearth of family diners, taquerias, family-owned pizza parlors, pubs, an organic and locally-sourced lunch counter, soul food, and burger joints. Many of these eateries are located within quick walking distance of campus, just down the hill in downtown Beloit.
