    Crown (the main cafe) can be really good some days, and slacking on others. It has a good variety of food though, including home-cooked meals and international meals. There is a restaurant-style eatery called Bistro 49 that has steak and fancy foods. UNCC also has commercialized restaurants such as Chic-fil-a, Wendy's and Salsaritas, which are pretty good. They just built a new dining hall in South Village, and its supposed to have a Denny's-styled restaurant open 24/7. I heard that's supposed to be good!

    I usually go home and eat but the food on campus is pretty good also. I definitely eat there if I'm not at home :)

    There are many options here for eating at UNCC. The student union is probably the best place to go, because it offers Crown Commons (buffet style), Wendys, Mama Leons, and a Bistro. When i was a freshman i would probably say i ate at crown commons the most, because you pay with your meal swipes, and you get to eat however much you want. Plus they have breakfast, lunch, and dinner in which the food is never the same thing everyday. The Bistro is a more fancy type of eat in place which has really good food as well, and you can also use your meal swipes there too. The other places of interest that UNCC has to offer is a Chik Fila, Bojangles, Subway, Salsaritas, and Grill Nation. Students have the option to use meal plans or declining balance. The fast food places only use declining balance, and places like Crown commons and Bistro can use both.

    I eat in Crown Commons, here the food can be a hit or miss. I feel that they try to be too exotic and fancy, it just doesn't really appeal to the student population. Many of the on campus restaurants do not have friendly workers, many of them come off as rude and uninviting.

    I love the food options that are offered at UNCC. I love chick fil a and because there is one on campus, i visit quite a lot. The food options are much different then high school and the food quality is great. I find that there are food options for just about anyone.

    The food is great. There is a dining hall near every dorm on campus. There are even restaurants all around for people to enjoy.

    There are a lot of food and dining options. The fast food is not as good as the real deal off of campus but good enough. The dining halls always try to provide a variety but it gets old quickly.

    There are many options to choose from in terms of eating. What ever you are in the mood for it will be somewhere on campus. If it isn't on campus there are many shopping centers nearby that will be sure to have whatever it is that your craving.

    I am not part of Greek life but it is a big part of campus. There are lots of sororities and fraternities to choose from and they all are known for different things. There is always something going on in greek life.
