    There is a Subway on campus and occasionally the culinary arts department will cook and sell their food during lunchtimes. But there are tons of places to eat around campus, in the Bank of America Plaza and just around downtown.

    The school has a subway, which is pretty good. There are also other places which surround the area and provide good food at a price.

    El Centro has subway inside the foodcourt, I think its a great choice of food to have in the school since subway has been proven to be more healthier compared to other fast foods.

    There are a couple of very good restaurants within a couple of blocks of this facility. They cater mostly to tourists and the students at both the Allied Health facility and the main campus two blocks away.
