Lets be honest, nothing beats mom's cooking! Especially southern mommas! The Lamar dining hall is catered by Chartwells and is decent. I do love the buffet style dining hall and the building is very nice. There are only 3 places to eat on campus and 5 if you consider subway and kampus korner, which are in walking distance. Other places are a 5 minute car ride, so not too bad.

as far as food, there is the dinning hall, the corner store which has a papa johns pizza and there is also a place called maribeaus. they have really good food.
Diamond from Houston, TX
There's not many options of places, so if you live on campus and gate a meal plan (you have to) then you might get bored. The buffet (dining hall) is great though. There's a lot of choices in there.
