What Students Are Saying

3.68 Average Rating
The food in the cafeteria is different everyday. The lunch ladies are wonderful and very hospitable. There is home-cooked food, as well as, fast food, a salad bar, and dessert. There is also all-day breakfast foods, soft drinks, milk, juice, and flavored water. Everything anyone could ever imagine is there.

The food here at McNeese State University is outstanding. There is just about anything a student or even a guest could want on campus. The cafeteria is also very remarkable and very flexible with their menus.

Rebecca from Denham Springs, LA
The New Ranch is pretty great. The cafeteria offers a wide variety of foods in a buffet style set-up. If you do not have a meal plan, and even if you do, the other food booths are really good for a quick meal.
