    Almost always the food was great for cafeteria food. They always had several options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They were accommodating for food allergies, vegans, and vegeterians by using warning signs for allergens like peanuts and seafood, offering vegetarian options, and always having an open salad bar or fresh fruit bar for vegans. Weekends and Fridays' dinner were never as good or as thought out as the rest of the week.

    The cafeteria had good food, and it is very affordable. The grill line tends to take longer. The dinner-type meals are filling and well worth the money.

    The food is normally very good. The staff is nice and polite. They expect a person to pick up after themselves and be polite and nice back to them while in the dining hall.

    I honestly have not tried the food in our cafeteria, but I have heard great things. Even though I have not gone to the cafeteria, I have gone to the BSU for their free lunch on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. I love it there! Great food and great people.

    The food at MGCCC is amazing. There is always different types of food so you can try something new or stick to what you know.
