Local Restaurant Row


WKU Restaurant Group is excited to bring our Local Restaurant Row (LRR) to life on the campus of Western Kentucky University this fall. Local restaurants are the cornerstone of our communities and we have worked over the past year to partner with restaurants and food trucks to bring you authentic, local flavors. This will bring our community to campus and offer a new, exciting way for students, faculty and staff to eat on the Hill!

Local Restaurant Row will has opened outside the Fine Arts Center with food trucks and a Restaurant Group (RG) Food Venue. Guests will be able to use Meal Plan Dollars, Dining Dollars, Big Red Dollars, cash and credit plus Value Meals at the RG Food Venue and the food trucks!

If you would like to see the Value Meal options for each Food Truck, CLICK HERE!

The RG Food Venue will offer a rotating menu of hot foods throughout the week – from Asian to grilled hamburgers and hot dogs. Food Trucks will be located at the bottom of the colonnade and options will rotate throughout the week!

For guests to be able to use their Meal Plans and Meal Plan Dollars, Dining Dollars, Flex and Big Red Dollars at the food trucks, they will purchase tokens at our cash registers for either $1, $5, $10 or VM (Value Meal) for a meal swipe. The tokens are then taken to the Food Trucks and used to purchase foods from their menus. Cash and credit purchases will be taken at each Food Truck, as well as for the food at the RG Food Venue at the cash registers.
