The food was pretty standard college cafeteria food. Not better or worse
Garrett from Jackson, TN
No. Just NO. I LOVE Harding. But the cafeteria food is terrible. The Grill is okay (mostly hamburgers and fries) but it gets old fast. There are other options like declining balance on your meal plan can be applied places on campus like Chickfila, Java City, and Taco Bell. However, you only have a limited about on that, so don't spend it all at once. The caf has good days in the comfort foods, but usually I stick to the soup or the stuff they have everyday.

The food at Harding in not the best, but it could be worse. We have multiple different options, and of course there is always our student center you can rely on if the cafeteria isn't reliable. They are really good about making sure they please everyone's food styles.
Logan from Cabot, AR
I am not a fan of the food at Harding.... The cafeteria is not very impressive, and it is very pricy. The meals evened out to about $8 per meal swipe into the cafeteria, and the food just isn't worth that in my opinion... I personally spent alot of money eating out during my first year at Harding.
Janice from Bartlesville, OK
The food at Harding isnt the greatest... The Caf (main dining hall) can be pretty iffy at times but you can also go to the stu (student center) to get things like Taco bell, chic fila, Chinese food (possibly panda express after the new renovations) or visit the mini mart. I am not a coffee drinker but I know many others are so for coffee lovers there is a starbucks on campus and a local coffee shop called Midnight Oil very close by which I have been told has fantastic coffee.
