Popular National/Regional Restaurants

If those Outback commercials are getting stuck in your head or your roommate just got a job and you wanted to take her to Bonefish to get those amazing Bang Bang Shrimp, check out our listing of national and regional chains complete with phone numbers (in case you need to make reservations) and a link to directions (in case you tend to look at a map upside-down).

Also, if you see these icons next to each restaurant $, $$, $$$, don’t panic. This is just a student-friendly rating system that we have devised for your convenience that works as follows.

$=Where a starving, strapped-for-cash college student can get food that isn’t from the dining hall.
$$=A place for your parents to spoil you, or maybe a roommate’s birthday or some other occasion.
$$$=Dinner with your rich uncle that comes to Notre Dame for a couple of football games a year.

If you are someone for whom an adventure in food is getting the curly fries instead of straight, it is probably best that you stick with this section. We have also included breakfast places in case you either want a real crepe or omelet from a restaurant instead of NDH or you just overslept the brunch hours (wow, someone had a long night). Tsk, tsk, my friend.
