I do not have a meal plan so I do not eat from ARA. I love Einstein Bagels and the Viking Cafe. I buy something from there almost every day. Easy, quick, and affordable
I love Einstein bagels but of course it is a bit expensive.
There have been a few shining moments are ARA, but for the most part, it's lackluster. It often gives people indigestion. The fruit and salad bar can be good, but it isn't always fresh. The pizza is floppy on a good day. The sandwich bar is usually a pretty good standby, but man cannot live on sandwiches alone. They have a good variety of cereals, but again, not a great or very filling option. The grill is greasy and not very good. The hot food line is usually one of the following: strange, gross, over/undersalted, cold, mushy. Vegetarians, beware. There is little for you here. Center Stage can be redeeming, although the options are not consistently good.
There are limitless options of food at ARA. Breakfast is a traditional breakfast. Lunch is full of vivid smells and flavors, as well for lunch.
I have never been to a worse place to eat in my life. There are no vegetarian options. No gluten free options. And hardly any dairy free options. The dining hall has been shut down five times in the last ten years for health code violations. If you don't have to eat there DO NOT!
Sorry, there are no reviews.
