What Students Are Saying

3.82 Average Rating
LSU has an all-you-can-eat style meal plan, so as long as you have meals, you can have whatever you like. The variety is great, and the food is always fresh. There are also plenty of fast food options nearby, with a few that give meal exchanges for your dining hall meals.
Michael from Tucker, GA
We have two awesome cafeterias on campus as well as numerous popular food chains in the union. No matter what you're craving there will be a place for you to eat!
Megan from Port Allen, LA
There is a sweet little Vietnamese place close by, as well as many other restaurants. At the orientation they even offered a vegetarian option which was sweet.
Sarah from Baton Rouge, LA
LSU has a lot of food choices: insomnia cookies (open for the late night cookie lovers), Canes (for all chicken lovers), Chipotle (for the 21st century student), and the list goes on.
Lynn from Baton Rouge, LA
LSU has an awesome dining hall set up! The student union has Chick-Fil-A, Panda Express, Salsarita's (a Mexican place), Jamba Juice, McDonald's, Einstein Bro's and a couple convenience and coffee shops as well. The two dining halls on campus (the 459 and the 5) have excellent breakfast, lunch and dinner. Cereal and waffles are always available as well as pizza and sandwiches for lunch and dinner. They change their menu daily to include stir fry, pasta, make your own omelets and sometimes red beans and rice or another speciality. Very good food overall! The restaurant scene around the LSU campus is excellent as well. Walk-On's is a very popular local place with a great atmosphere for Game Day's and to take your family when they visit. The Chimes, Louie's, Chelsea's and Fat Cow are some other local hot spots that are sure to please any taste palate!
