Best American Restaurants in Orono
Best Italian Restaurants in Orono
Orono is best known for being the home of the University of Maine, and a serious college town will always demand seriously good food. Pizza may well have gotten its start as a traditional late night dorm snack here, having been in the area since the early 1950s, but Orono's food offerings go far beyond bar pies. Creative hot dog joints, cozy brewpubs, adventurous vegetarian options and a host of varied ethnic eateries make their home here. Whether it's an overstuffed breakfast burrito after a long night cramming for exams, a good burger to bring in the weekend, or a leisurely Sunday brunch, Orono feeds its students well, leaves visitors satisfied and keeps UMO alumni coming back for more, a sure sign of eating excellence.
