What Students Are Saying

3.67 Average Rating
There are several eateries on campus. There's Iberville, which is like a buffet; it's really good. Also, closer to the center of campus in the student union you can grab a bite to eat. There is a wide variety of food. Also off campus there are several restaurants that accept student ID cards which will provide for discounted purchases.
La'Kendria from Natchitoches, LA
Campus food is awesome if you love to eat burgers, french fires and pizza everyday. Occasionally, the cafe will serve a special dish but if your looking for variety you might need to visit the other campus dining services such as the Grill.
Adrianna from Shreveport, LA
There are multiple places to eat on campus, such as Vic's, which is a small cafeteria. There is also the Grill, which contains burgers and chicken strips. There is also Iberville, which is the largest cafeteria, which allows you to eat as much as you like.
Travis from Brentwood, TN
there are several places on campus to eat using your meal plan. for only $6 you can eat at the cafeteria and have as much as you want.
Angela from Walker, LA
There are many places for students to eat on and off campus in Natchitoches. I love the areas and the food options that is available for you. You have about three areas on campus that you could eat at that does not limit what you can order to eat. If you would like to go off campus to dine, there are many places you can choose from between the amazing locals shops to the regular food places you get anywhere.
Catherine from DeRidder, LA
The food is actually pretty good for being a cafeteria. There's also places on campus, Vic's and The Grill, that you can eat at that have a wide variety of selections.
