The collegiate grill is obviously a handed down location where the food when it hits your taste buds takes you back to the 60's and 70's. Don't know exactly what they do to make the food so nostalgic but it is real and tastes great.

Our second visit here, took daughter after school. Awesome milkshakes, great flavorful burgers, and very good chili dogs. Wife really enjoyed the chili cheese fries. Staff is super friendly. Everything freshly made to order. Great.

Service dogs only. There are other restaurants around the square that have outdoor seating where dogs are welcome but unfortunately the Collegiate doesn't

They have regular burger and fries and such. Not really a gluten free kind of place.
