What Students Are Saying

3.87 Average Rating
after all the horror stories i heard about college food i was prepared to not like anything. i have found there is always something good to eat.
a rising sophmore
The Refectory has an outstanding and modern selection of food. The Lynx offers a more casual, sports pub feel. They are both on campus, and both are sparkling clean.
Very Interested
Students are offered a meal plan that grants them either 15 or 21 meals for each week as well as one hundred dollars of Lynx Bucks each semester that can be used for snacks, drinks, and even Starbucks. There are two dining areas where students can get their food, The Lair and The Rat. Both locations offer a wide assortment of food choices that should please everyone's desired cravings.
Richard from Frisco, TX
In the past people often complained about food quality, especially at the Rat Refectory. The Rat is a buffet-style eatery where students can chow down on anything from classic home-style meals to vegetarian foods. However, since the Rat was reconstructed in this year, quality and taste has improved ten-fold. Not only is this building beautiful and roomy, but the chefs are very creative when giving the students fresh and tasty home cooked options. On the other side of campus lies the Lynx Lair. Unlike the Rat, the Lair the menu doesn�¢??t change on a daily basis�¢??there is a station of wraps and deli-style sandwiches, one for fried and grilled foods, one that sells quesadillas and burritos, one for pizza, and a salad bar. The items change during late hours and alcohol can also be purchased at the bar area. The lair is a great place to bring hang out with friends, watch TV in the lounge area, or study.
Taylor from Memphis, TN
Food is really average. There are two main dining areas that offer a change of pace. It depends on the day. Friday's 'fried chicken Friday's' are always a hit, though.
