What Students Are Saying

3.76 Average Rating
I personally ate on campus every day. We had a large variety of foods including: McAlister's Deli, Chick-fil-A, Burger King, Counter Culture, sushi, taco salads, wraps, and a pasta/pizza station. I hardly ever ate in the cafeteria, but I was told that it was good also! There are always places to sit in the student center or other dining areas plus tables outside!
Kelsey from TX
There are a lot of different places you can choose to eat at. You can always find something on campus to eat!
Ryan from Vivian, LA
Dining is wonderful here at Tech. We have plenty of options to choose from. The student center contains a food court (asian place, Burger Studio, Salad Garden, snacks, and drinks), the cafeteria, and a Chick-fi-la!!! Tolliver contains a McCallister's, Bene Pasta (create your own pasta bowl), Java City, and Byte's Store. You can also purchase snacks from the bookstore.
Kirsten from Ruston, LA
The cafeteria food is actually good. There is a different variety everyday and healthy options are available. There is a Chick fil A, burger place, salad place, pizza place, sushi/asian food place and a mini convenient store.

The cafeteria has a wide range of choices, there is a mini food court around it with reasonable prices. There is also a mall-like food court in a separate building right across from the caf that even has a little convenience store. They have multiple meal plans to appeal to everyone and with certain plans the additional money can be used around campus.
Jamecia from Monroe, LA
The food on campus is really good. There is a food court which has a sushi restaurant, burger joint, wraps, and a salad place. Also in Tolliver, we have a McAllister's and Bene, an italian restaurant. The cafe also offers really good food.
