What Students Are Saying

3.79 Average Rating
Mason's food is beyond fantastic. It's not your typical college food that makes you want to go home for some home-cooked food. The food always tastes amazing and there is always a place to get that food at all hours of the night!
Jennifer from Columbia, MD
Like I said earlier, Mason is full of Innovation. We have recently put in a Rot Hot n' Blue and Panda Express. Dining at Mason is very nice. You have a lovely assortment of restaurants to choose from. Whether its fast food or food fast Mason will keep you fed.
Tomesha from Highland Springs, VA
The food in the dining halls is definitely not gourmet, but its not bad either. There are a lot of choices in the dining halls, including regular american food, sandwiches, international foods, pasta, etc. I have been to schools with much worse food, and I don't think the food is too bad. In addition to dining halls, there are a number of chain restaurants here on campus as well.
