What Students Are Saying

3.68 Average Rating
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.

Jennifer from Lake Charles, LA
i eat on campus every day. not bad for school food.
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.
Peyton from Jennings, LA
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.
