What Students Are Saying

3.73 Average Rating
The food and dining services at California State University Long Beach provide students with an excellent variety of places to eat at. The Nugget Grill and Pub, located near the Bookstore, is an excellent restaurant that offers popular sport games on a big screen television for all students, it has the best turkey burger and provides students with the perfect social ambiance. During the 2010 FIFA world cup, student flocked The Nugget to watch Spain and Netherlands fight for the gold cup. Then there is The Outpost, a delicious restaurant to attend if you need to grab a quick bite before class. Located near the Engineering and Journalism buildings, it provides students with affordable fast food such as pizza, sandwiches and salad. Adjacent to the Outpost is a small convenient store that has all the necessities a student needs such as food, refreshments, scantrons, pencils, pens, paper, etc.

A favorite coffee shop among all students is Starbucks, which is located in the library. Known as one of the best coffee shops around the world, it serves all the students at my university who need a quick wake up before class or even after a long day of studying. Affordable coffee for coffee lover and addicts, it is definitely one of the best places to grab a delicious coffee on campus. I give my university five stars because of the affordable prices, delicious food, and excellent services.

The dining halls are all really new, and offer a variety of meals, so you're never really stuck eating the same thing all the time. I tried a Vietnamese soup called Pho for the first time at the dorms, and on a cold rainy day at school, it was so welcoming. They also provide different meal plans, like 10 meal a week plan (the cheapest) which is convenient for the people who go home on weekends. There's the block meal plan, for those who might have visitors over, and the 3 meals a day meal plan, which is the 19 meals a week plan. Those are best for people coming from hometowns that are far away.
The only problem is that the dining hall opens late on the weekends, which for me, and early-bird, was a little bit annoying, but nothing sleeping in couldn't fix!

They have a very good selection of different cuisines on campus.
