    There is a small cafeteria located at the main entrance. It is very clean but also very loud. There is not a meal plan option when you order food bring cash or a debit/credit card. The food is very over priced.

    There's a big diversity when it comes to food. There are a lot of places where you can buy food in and out of the campus. Outside of campus, there's a big variety of food from different cultures that you can try.

    The food is pretty good. Parkland has one cafeteria and one restaurant currently. I think they will be adding another restaurant when they finish the new building.

    There are tons of places around Parkland College to eat that are within 5 miles. McDonalds, Taco Bell, El Toro, KFC, pretty much anything you crave is within driving or walking distance.

    The cafeteria is really expensive, it's rented out by a private vending company so the prices aren't student friendly.
