Here at the University of Arizona, students are lucky enough to have the option to use their university ID cards for a meal plan or, what we call, Cat Cash. Cat Cash makes a Cat Card work like a debit card that can be used at certain off-campus locations around the university. Here is a list of restaurants you can use your Cat Cash at.
1. Lindy’s on 4th
Hidden on 4th Avenue, you can find this little burger shop with huge servings of burgers, tots or fries with any added toppings you want.
2. Paradise Bakery
A variety of many local and fresh foods including salads, sandwiches, soups, cookies and much more. Everything baked fresh daily.
3. Illegal Pete’s
New to the UA campus area, Illegal Pete’s serves Mexican food so good, it should be illegal. Make sure to always get extra queso on the side.

One of the most popular restaurants to eat at on University Boulevard. You’ll find a variety of foods including many delicious appetizers, burgers, fish tacos and a wide selection of beer.
