    the good food is from the salad bar, the desert area, or making your own sandwich. everything else is typically bland. taco tuesday makes up for it.

    The best food is the chicken fingers and the tacos. Other than that the food is subpar. I mostly order out, or go to the Grill.

    Gourmet Foods take the time to try and come up with new ideas to spice up the food choices offered to students. Taco Tuesday is a popular one, the Wok stations, salad bar, etc. Everyone tend to miss their home cooked meals, but FDU does it best to make it as homey as possible.

    Terrible service. They have a staff of maybe 10-15 working a ridiculous schedule. They hate their lives, and it shows through the food.

    The food in the cafeteria is better than most schools, but it can get old quickly. Fortunately, the numbers for local restaurants are provided in dorms and select restaurants actually accept Fairleigh 1 dollars, the refillable currency stored on the school's ID cards. There's also a Nathan's and grill-type place to mix things up (the latter is even open late).

    I am apart of Greek Life and I would not change that for the world. It has become my family away from home. We are involved in so much, both on and off campus, I feel like I am apart of something so much bigger than just another sorority.
