    The Viking Cafe always has a hot plate special each day of the week and it varies from Mexican, to Italian, to some good ole homestyle cooking. Recently we got a sub and salad bar too, so you can eat healthy :). It is a little pricey if you eat there everyday, but you can put financial aid or scholarship monies onto a re-loadable card at the beginning of the semester and then you earn 10% off of your meals.

    There are 4 sit down restaurants (that I personally know of) right in town. One is a Mexican restaurant, and another one specializes in 1lb baked potatoes. For those in a hurry there's 4 fast food locations right in town. There is the infamous McDonald's, Hardees, Taco Bell, and DQ. From what I hear though, there are some talks of putting in a Steak and Shake.

    The campus has a cafeteria on site that serves hamburgers, chicken tenders, and other cafeteria food. The food is nothing impressive its merely glorified vendor food. The taste is rather mundane and the prices a little high for the quality. The surrounding area has a Taco Bell, McDonalds, Hardees, and various local cuisine as an alternative. However all of the aforementioned are located a few miles off campus.

    The cafe is wonderful and the snack bar and the career and technical building is awesome. The staff are all very wonderful.

    i say lower than average because they always have the same type of meal. it is so rare to see any healthy food in the cafeteria if you don't count the salad bar. and the most important thing is that food is extremely expensive in jeffco. i'll suggest you to bring your own food to school or starve yourself until you get home. unfortunately, i never enjoyed eating in jeffco.
