    Eastern's meal prices can be overpriced, but the food is good. There is a cafe located in the library as well as a dining area in the Student Center. The products are almost always of high quality and are made quickly for on-the-go students. Hurley dining hall food is not as good as what is offered at the cafes on campus and meals can become very repetitive.

    Once in a while there's a good meal at Hurley Hall but for the most part the food is really not that great. It's very predictible as to what they will serve. There needs to be alternative choices for people who are vegans and vegetarians.

    The food is like any other college it is a hit or miss. Some days the food is really good other times it's not.

    Food is good, as you get deeper into the semester it tends to get repetitive. Not everyone likes to eat burgers everyday !

    Hurley Hall is your typical college dinning hall.Hurley does try to accommodate everyones eating habits with countless options for each meal. The student center or stu also has a cafe. This food is awesome and has a Starbucks, sub station, salad station, grill, pizza station and a station that changes every month. the food is prepared right there fresh in front of you.

    The food is pretty good. There are always options for people. We have to go boxes after 11 am which is really nice and rare for a school. There is only one dining hall, so that can get old, but you get dining dollars each semester that you can spend at local establishments.

    The food is not good at all. They do not season everything and the food is extremely greasy. The dining hall offers the same meals everyday. There are always burgers, pizza, pasta, and salad. With little variety, the food begins to taste the same. You are always hungry, but the food is not satisfying and after you eat you usually feel awful. Not good quality
