3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The same type of good is served in almost every cafeteria in campus, mostly not healthy options such as fast food.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: It's good food, a lot of times, but in some places, it's reheated instead of cooked on the spot.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There isn't much of a variety of food on campus. there's no place that serves unique fresh food, besides chef thai and sometimes sbisa, that would keep people happy and healthy. the best way to get the most out of your meal plan is to use your meal plans for sbisa during lunch and dinner, and then use your dining dollars for everything else.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: They have added quite a few new food options that have made the campus food a lot better

4 College Junior

Campus Food: Haven't had anything that was gross yet.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students agree that the food on campus is somewhere between average and good, and they appreciate the day-to-day variety. There are many dining facilities that offer several options, so don’t worry about getting tired of any particular dish. Here at A&M, you get the option of having meal plans and dining dollars. Dining dollars are like real money—you can use Dining Dollars to buy salads, coffee, and other stuff around campus, including the convenience store, Rattlers. There are even coffee shops and a Chinese stand that take meal plans or dining dollars. Meal plans can be expensive, but students do get a lot of food and options for the price.

There are several all-you-can eat cafeterias, giving A&M students the option of taste-testing as little, or as much, as they desire from semester to semester. There’s pizza, burgers, and everything you can think of that’s both tasty and fattening, and for those of you looking to fend off the Freshman 15, there are salad bars and delis where you can build your own healthy sandwiches. There are also vegetarian options and some vegan sections at Sbisa Dining Center, which also offers the best cookies—there’s not one student who isn't a fan of them. Probably the best-kept secret on campus is Cain Dining Hall in the athletic dorm. It’s only for student-athletes, so try to befriend someone who has access. Cain is becoming known as the best cafeteria on campus, and maybe the entire city. Tuesday is steak night—and there’s nothing like a good ’ol Texas-style slab of steak—but there are also other options available. Overall, don’t be afraid to try every eatery on campus when you first get to A&M—it’s the only way to see what’s out there and find what you like best.

Did You Know?
Every meal plan also comes with some guest meals, so your friends who don't go to A&M-or your parents-can eat free with you on a number of occasions. Most students don't know about these meals, which are a great resource if someone drops in for a visit.
