    Food on campus is quite routine. Nevertheless, Tougaloo's location is in the perfect spot. It is literately in walking distance from all the great restaurants! Therefore, food isn't a problem>

    I've only eaten there a couple of times, but the food was good. And they send you a menu to your email each day.

    The food is great on most days. Chicken Wednesday and Fish Fridays are the best days for the cafeteria.

    The food at Tougaloo College is amazing! They provide choices for those who are health conscious, such as salad bars and grilled options. However, it is the great southern meals and flavors that tend to be a campus favorite!

    Tougaloo College is located down south in Jackson, Ms so the only food you'll eat is good home-style cooking in the cafe. And if you want fast-food you'll have to go off campus for that desire.
