I decided to rate food as 4 out of 5 because as delicious as the cafeteria food is, the price is personally a bit of a deal-breaker for me. The prices are not extreme but they are also not the same as if you bought the meal from a store. Not only that, the cafeteria provides a different menu each day so it does not become cloying! Morganton, the town Western Piedmont is situated in, holds a variety of eating facilities from the ever-popular Grind Cafe, to Italian, Greek, and family restaurants, not to mention the typical students savior, fast food restaurants.
