    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.

    There are two restaurants on campus, although the owners have changed 3-4 times while I've attended. The food is always delicious, but the prices just keep going up. It's good in an emergency if you dont have the time or means to go off-campus for a meal, but if you can I recommend going to one of the many restaurants just off of campus.
