The food is good, Chic fil a, Tiger Express (salads, and sandwiches), Tiger Grill (pizza, burgers) Sandella's (burritos, wraps).
Taylor from Arkansas
Ok lets get real... who WANTS to eat in the Caf? It really isn't bad food, you just get a little tired of it after 4 years. The workers though - SOME OF THE NICEST PEOPLE ON CAMPUS! At night Mr. Ricky will put on a Michael Jackson CD and the whole caf will sing along and attempt to moonwalk! The ladies working the line are simply wonderful, and make the experience fun! :) They are very accommodating when it comes to unusual diets as well. They always offer a vegetarian dish and have a special back room for people with food allergies (Gluten free stuff, soy milk, almond milk, rice milk, etc.) If you have a special diet and let someone on the staff know... they will get EXACTLY what you want! :)

Ah, the cinnamon rolls ! Our dining hall men and women fix tons of cinnamon rolls just to help us make it through finals week. It is the only part of finals week I look forward to. Everyday, though, there are way more choices than any of us deserve. The salads, ice cream, desserts, Italian food, hamburgers, etc are wonderful and never allow u to get bored with eating in the caf.
Justin from Searcy, AR
Food and dinning is exceptional. OBU's cafeteria is well built and well managed. A chick fil a, Tiger Grill and a Starbucks offer variety for any one's unique taste.

The best
James from Decatur, AR
The food is what keeps students running during stressful times and Ouachita surely delivers. With the cafeteria and other restaurants available, there is something for everyone. Also the bonus of Starbucks helps everyone survive finals week!
