Rensselaer has more than its share of great places to eat!  If you like a family style sit down meal, then "Devon's" or "Rico's" , which are both on the south side of town (near Wal-Mart), are the places to go.  If you like it a little more upscale, try the "City Office and Pub" located on the west side of the courthouse in the historic downtown area.  If hot dogs and burgers are more to your likeing , then "the Dog House" (south side of town) and "Bazz's Eat and Sip" (north side of town) would be perfect.  Of course, Rensselaer also has many nation chains as well including McDonald's, Burger King, Pizza Hut, etc.
