Do you take Frog Bucks?

This is the question everyone wants to ask when they venture out of the “TCU Bubble.”

Kennedy Wilson said she was shocked other schools do not have programs like Frog Bucks.

“I talked to some of my friends when I went home freshman year and no one knew what I was talking about,” she said. “They didn’t have these programs.”

What are Frog Bucks?

Frog Bucks are dining dollars that come with your meal plan. You can use them at selected restaurants off campus. Frog Bucks can also be used on campus at any dining location!

Places you wouldn’t think uses the bucks.

Cafe Brazil: This place is a hidden gem around TCU. Cafe Brazil is a local chain founded as a quaint restaurant where you could enjoy a great breakfast and specialty roasted coffees from around the world. They have bottomless coffee and are open Monday – Sunday from 7 AM-4 PM.

Hoffbrau Steaks and Silver Fox: If you are wanting a great steak or seafood use your Frog Bucks at these restaurants right down the road from TCU.

Jacqueline Hutchins, a senior at TCU, said Hoffbrau is a great mixture of a asual atmosphere with great food.

“The steak is great but really you need to get the mac-and-cheese,” she said. “You can’t go wrong with any of the restaurants.”

Susie Cakes : This bakery has everything you need for a birthday, celebration or thank you gift. Susie Cakes has pastries ranging from full-sized cakes to cookies and pies.

Benjamin Hopper said “usually my differentiator is the frosting, but for Susie Cakes the entire cake is a sensation for my mouth.”
