What Students Are Saying

3.98 Average Rating
I usually bring my own lunch and dinner to school but if I don't i usually head over to the dining halls. The food there is reasonably price and surprisingly good. If you want healthy food such as salad, yogurt and sandwiches they have many options you can choose from. If you're the type of person that needs caffeine for an all nighter and maybe a bag of chips just in case you get hungry they also have many options as well. Hours are convenient for everyone and it's really nice running into someone in the cafeteria and enjoying your meal with a group of people.

Cafeteria food is alright, way better then in High school! There are also many resturants nearby that are really great if you choose to go off campus.
Hannah from Dearborn Heights, MI
There are a lot of different dining areas that are close to campus. Some of the popular restaurants that are close by are: Good Girls Go To Paris Crepes, Wasabi, Detroit One Coney Island, and Slow's Bar BQ. There are also a lot of fast food places that are nearby like Domino's, Jimmy John's, etc. Greektown and downtown Detroit have a lot of good restaurants also. Most of the food in the city isn't super expensive also so it's good for students on a budget.

Decent food; it could be better for what we pay for the school, but it is not as bad as many other colleges I have visted and witnessed.
Ashley from Ottawa, IL
There are several small restaurants and fast food places within blocks from the school. Downtown is also about a twenty minute drive away if you want something in particular.
CCS student
The food is moderately cheap, but if you commute, you definitely want to pack lunch/dinner. However, the food they have at the school is rather good. Except the sushi. Avoid the sushi at all costs.

If you commute like I do, and you forget to pack a lunch/dinner, your ID will act as a credit card with a $300 limit on it. Use it sparingly, however.
Rachel from Troy, MI
A little expensive for on campus dining but its pretty great tasting food. There's a lot of restaurants off campus as well. Some actually give you little discounts for being a student at CCS.
Nathaniel from Troy, MI
Although the Taubman Center campus requires dining dollars, it is optional at the ACB. The food is pretty good and you can easily get full. Though the prices may be on the more expensive side, it's definitely a life-saver if you don't know how to cook.
O'Shea from Southfield, MI
There are multiple places you can get food on the campus and because of the location there are restaurants all around. The T.C has a Tim Hortons on the ground floor of the building and a lunchroom on the second floor. The food in the lunch room is okay but its not the best. The Tim hortins is also combined with a Sedexo Grill which is on both campuses, and the same could be said about their food.
