When you’re looking for a place to eat and want to try something off-campus Denton is packed with great restaurants. To help you find your way here are just a few of our favorites at The Lasso, all within walking distance of TWU.
You might not think of Cajun food when you first think of Denton but one visit to Hoochies and we guarantee you’ll change your mind. Try a finger-licking good shrimp Po’boy with some red beans and rice on the side.
Hoochies is known for serving up tasty seafood whether you want your meal grilled, boiled or fried. The chefs at Hoochies can do it all and they also serve up a raw bar loaded with fresh, schucked-to-order oysters from the Gulf. Even the bread at Hoochies is baked in house.
Their own website calls them zany and fun and with their location just off the square on West Hickory you can easily walk there from the TWU campus. If you can’t get to Hoochies in person you can get your Cajun fix delivered for a small fee by ordering online and using an easy app called Greedi.
Head to Hoochies website at www.hoochiesdenton.com for more information on this Denton hotspot.
If you’re looking for a plate full of sweet, spicy BBQ look no further than Denton staple, Rooster’s Roadhouse on Industrial Avenue. Rooster’s is also known for their juicy burgers and you might want to start your meal off with an order of the bean and chopped brisket queso with a smoky flavored pico that will make your mouth water. Part of the fun at Rooster’s is just gazing at all the eclectic décor that completely covers the walls and even the ceiling. Check them out at www.roosters-roadhouse.com and then walk that way.
Literally just down the sidewalk from Rooster’s you’ll find Fuzzy’s Taco Shop. Whether you’re stopping in for a delicious breakfast taco or you’re bringing your appetite for a jumbo burrito Fuzzy’s has got you covered. Try the Tempura Shrimp jumbo burrito for a new take on Mexican flavor and add a side of the cilantro-lime rice.
For the vegetarians the grilled veggies is a mix of grilled veggies, salad and fixings to die for. Don’t worry, you’ll walk off any calories coming back to campus. It will be worth it.
Feeling blue after a long week of homework, projects and exams? Swing over to Mellow Mushroom where they’ve been keeping it groovy since 1974. If you’re a Beatles fan try the Magical Mystery Tour pizza topped with mozzarella and two kinds of mushrooms, spinach, feta, and jalapenos. Try it out, you’ll be glad you did.
