    In the dining hall, there is a suggestion box that you can input comments about the meal, complaints, suggestions, and any other criticism you may have. There are various stands. Such as: salad, pizza, sandwich. Everyday pizza is served freshly and there are many choices to chose from. Also, if you walk to Didnt food stations, there will always be something you like.

    For the most part, the food is very good. Sometimes you might have different varieties of chicken for dinner every night (which gets a little boring), but there are other options if you don't want to eat chicken. There is a pizza station, a salad bar, a made-to-order sandwich station, an international station, breakfast station, a hot dog station, a hot station (which offers nachos, tacos, pasta, etc.), and a healthy station. These stations aren't always open every night (with the exception of the salad bar), but when they are, it's always good eating. There is also Cadillac Daddy Cafe downstairs in the Madden Center that offers many different combos and options if you don't want to eat in the cafeteria. The C-Store is located next door to the cafe where you can get all of your dorm needs, such as milk, chips, cookies, cereal (in a cup), ice cream, water, and different Coca-Cola products. This is included in the meal plan cost. The less meals you eat in the dining hall, the more money you get to use at Cadillac Daddy's. For example, if you choose to have 10 meals a week in the dining hall, then you get $200 to use at Cadillac Daddy's, compared to 19 meals a week and $100 to spend.

    It's definitely better than my high school's food. There is a dining hall and it's fairly large. We have a hot bar where they have different food every day, like country fried steak, mash potatoes, some kind of vegetable. Also they usually have different pizzas during lunch and sometimes dinner. They have a good salad bar and usually Asian food during lunch. Breakfast is usually really good, pancakes, sausage, bacon, eggs, cereal, etc. There's also fountain drinks and different juices and milks available. Ice cream and desserts are always available as well.

    The food at Davis and Elkins definitely varies from day to day. There are always many options available each day. There is almost always a sandwich bar open for lunch and also a salad bar open 24/7. Then on other days they will have different stations open as well, for example, the Mexican or Asian station, which are absolutely delicious. Then of course every day there is the lunch line with deserts and usually pizza. Regardless of your taste there are so many options, that one never goes away hungry.

    The dining staff are gorgeous. They're so friendly and just very lovely in general. The food however is not amazing but to be fair it's not that bad. More than and good enough to get you through the day.

    You have many different options for food. There are always about eight different kinds of food being served in the cafeteria itself. But then you also have little food places around campus to chose from.

    The food in the cafeteria is okay to good depending on your preference of food. Regulars include main entries, Asian stand, Salad bar, deli station, cereals and desert stations. Occasional bars include sushi bar, Mexican stand, hot dog stand, and the once in a while international food fest.
