Sometimes, the greatest part of the meal at Commons is the names they give their dishes. There's something they call "Enraged Pasta," which I wouldn't particularly recommend, and a couple times they made a cheese and hot dog soup that looked nauseating-not to mention the casserole-type things that looked an awful lot like a mixture of what was served at lunch. Commons can get pretty creative with their ingredients, and I'm convinced they know this, which is why we have the sandwich bar, grill, and the salad bar as staples when nobody wants to eat their latest culinary invention. One has to give them credit for cooking gigantic amounts of food, ranging from blech to belissimo, for a bunch of spoiled kids who are constantly looking for something to grumble about. The spaghetti is actually pretty impressive, as far as mass-production goes.
DK's stands its mediocre ground as the "grill" on campus. You can get hamburgers and grilled cheese, and fried this and fried that, snacks, and apple slices with caramel dip. There is also a sandwich bar for those who are feeling grease-free. This is more of the place to stop by for lunch on your way to or in between classes. It's not open on the weekends (no one would make the walk over there anyway), so you have to get your fill Monday through Friday, but avoid the rush hours. If anything, my biggest beef with the dining on campus in general is that we can't use our meal plan for the Java Joint, and it would be nice to have more than two choices, but the situation as it stands doesn't warrant many complaints.
