DSC_0079When 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 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 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.
